TAA elects new chair

The state’s tourism and accommodation body, Tourism Accommodation Australia NSW, has elected Richard Doyle as its new chair. 

TAA NSW CEO Michael Johnson said Mr Doyle was elected at the final Board Meeting for 2020 after Antony Page stepped down from the role. 

He said: “Antony Page has left the board to re-locate to Victoria and we him every success with the opening of the new Ritz Carlton in Melbourne in 2021.

“Antony has done a great job during a difficult period.

“In his place our board elected, Richard Doyle, Group General Counsel, StayWell Holdings to the position.  

“Mr Doyle has more than 25 years’ experience in the industry, and, at a time when we are recovering from our worst trading period in living memory, will be a great support for our board and myself.”

As Group General Counsel, Mr Doyle oversees all of StayWell Holding’s Australian and international legal requirements as well as managing the company’s asset management functions and being a key team member of the group’s Australian and international development activities.

Since he started with StayWell in 2006 Mr Doyle has helped grow the company’s initial small Australian-based portfolio into a flourishing international network of more than 35 hotels.

He previously worked as StayWell’s leading legal advisor in securing successful developments and acquisitions of the group’s portfolio across the globe including Indonesia, the Middle East, India, Singapore, the United Kingdom and Australia.

The vacant board position has been filled by Sally Burgess, general manager, Radisson Hotel and Suites Sydney.

“We welcome Sally Burgess to the TAA NSW board and all look forward to working with her in what is sure to be a tough 2021,” said Mr Johnson.
