Kaydee George

Global award winner appointed new general manager of Wyndham Surfers Paradise

Kaydee George comes to the Gold Coast after two years as resort manager at Ramada Resort Wanaka in New Zealand, where she markedly improved the 68-room resort’s guest, financial and environmental performance.

Prior to Ramada Resort Wanaka, Kaydee was the Hotel Manager at Ramada Perth, The Outram. She has 12 years’ experience in hospitality, the vast majority of which has been spent in leadership positions, from Night Manager to Resort Manager.

Earlier this month, Kaydee was named the winner of Wyndham’s global Caught Green Handed Award for 2017, an accolade given to the most impressive environmental performance of the year across the hospitality giant’s corporate offices and managed properties. Kaydee’s green initiatives reduced Ramada Resort Wanaka’s carbon emissions and cut annual gas consumption by half.

Senior Vice President Hotel and Resort Operations & Property Development Matt Taplin said Kaydee has consistently excelled across five years with Wyndham.

“Kaydee is an excellent example of how to build a successful career in hospitality through hard work and a determination to create personalised and memorable experiences for guests,” he said.

“Under her leadership, Ramada Resort Wanaka recorded higher guest satisfaction and revenue and we are looking forward to seeing what Kaydee can do at one of our most popular properties.”

The namesake of global hospitality giant Wyndham Hotel Group, Wyndham is an upscale brand that delivers a comfortable environment to exceed expectations and offers world-class amenities, thoughtful inclusions and tailored service.

Wyndham Surfers Paradise, situated on Surfers Paradise Boulevard, is a mixed-use property available to hotel guests and timeshare owners in the WorldMark South Pacific Club.
