Business Development Manager – Hotel Management Contracts
· Fast-Growing, PE-backed Investor & Operator
· Regional Exposure
· Location: Vietnam or Singapore
The company is an expanding Private Equity-backed company led by an experienced cosmopolitan management team. Combining entrepreneurial flair with significant ‘dry powder’ to build a substantial AUM, it is focused toward hospitality investment opportunities comprising portfolio acquisitions, resort development and branded hospitality management contracts. To support its growth plans, there is a need for a number of hires during 2018/19. One of these includes a requirement for a Business Development Manager to drive management contracts.
Reporting to the CIO, the successful individual will be tasked with driving hotel management contracts for its wholly-owned hotel management company and with a need to originate opportunities within the Vietnam market. This will include a need to cultivate relationships with land-owners and asset owners, managing proposals, undertaking feasibility studies (location, positioning, pricing) and managing internal stakeholders to ensure appropriate resources are applied to proposed/confirmed deals, in order to deliver and execute a full suite of hospitality services on behalf of the Owner.
Note: The company may also be interested in a similar profile to be based in Singapore whilst holding a broader, regional remit.
Interested candidates will ideally offer a Degree in Real Estate, Finance or similarly related subject, whilst offering approximately 7-10 years’ post-graduate experience within a branded hospitality operator and a record of originating and securing management contracts. It is expected that the successful individual will relish joining an entrepreneurial environment with a scope to grow a business, whilst offering a well-honed network of contacts, industry knowledge and excellent bi-lingual English and Vietnamese communication skills. An ability to interpret financial information and apply critical, commercial thought processes to support proposed transactions will similarly be essential. A self-motivated, organised individual with excellent interpersonal skills, a lively, inquiring mind and a flexible disposition will be essential.
