QT Hotels & Resorts Announce Skilled New Leadership

Posted on: 09 February 2022

Australia and New Zealand’s most celebrated designer hotel collection, QT Hotels & Resorts, continue to go from strength to strength with new leadership appointments. The award-winning group continues to support their people, celebrating internal talent and high-performing leaders at QT and parent company, EVENT Hospitality and Entertainment.

Dominic Rose has been appointed the General Manager of QT Gold Coast. First joining EVENT in 2008, he has moved from General Manager of Rydges South Bank, to growing with QT Gold Coast, forming part of the opening team to his former role as Group Food & Beverage Director. With decades of experience leading food and beverage, Dominic will continue to exceed QT Gold Coast’s reputation as the Sunshine State’s designer destination for everything from it’s award-winning restaurants and bars, conferencing to boutique accommodation.

Cian McClafferty is QT Canberra’s newly appointed General Manager. Since joining EVENT in 2013, QT has always been close to his heart. His experience with the brand has seen him lead operations at the flagship QT Sydney, QT Bondi and QT Queenstown. With the past 3 years as General Manager at Rydges Cronulla, Cian looks forward to being reunited with QT and elevating QT Canberra’s status of playful, designer accommodation in the heart of the Capital.

QT has pioneered the philosophy of ‘expect the unexpected’, with every property delivering an experience which combines local influences and lashings of signature quirk, ensuring each hotel is a character in its own right.

Callum Kennedy, Group General Manager, QT Hotels & Resorts says, “I have every confidence in the growth of our leadership team, as we start the year strong with these appointments. QT is in a great position to continue to  disrupt through innovation, by keeping agile through our commitment to delivering the unexpected.”

Kennedy says, “Our team of  amazing talent is testament to the unwavering strength of the brand. Each member brings invaluable knowledge to an already passionate and eclectic team who deliver our highly individualised signature service throughout our hubs of quirky luxury.”
