Prior to joining Crystalbrook, Jeremy opened The Calile Hotel in Brisbane, an urban resort-style property that launched onto the hotel scene in 2018 and quickly gained notoriety for its integrated fashion and lifestyle elements with Jeremy at the helm.
Jeremy also spent time in the Maldives where he played an important role in the lead-up and opening of the Kandima Maldives, one of the region’s celebrated luxury escape destinations.
“I am truly excited to take on the General Manager role at Crystalbrook Vincent. Each of the hotels in the Crystalbrook portfolio has a unique identity; at Vincent, I have the opportunity to build and innovate and to continually up the ante on our sustainability mission,” said Jeremy Nordkamp.
Crystalbrook Vincent features more than 500 pieces of artwork by acclaimed Australian painter Vincent Fantauzzo which are showcased throughout the six-story hotel.
