Pentahotels has announced the promotion of Andrew Munt to Vice President, Operations. Effective from 1 June 2017 Munt will be responsible for hotel operations in his new role, and lead a dynamic operations team.
Having studied Hotel and Catering Management in Manchester, Munt joined Pentahotels in 2010 and played an integral role in the brand’s entry into the UK market as General Manager of Pentahotel Reading. Riding on this success, he was promoted to Regional Director UK three years later, before becoming Head of Pentahotels UK in 2016. During this period, he played an active role in the conversion of six new UK properties.
On the announcement of his appointment, Munt comments: “Having been a part of the Pentahotels group for eight years, I am delighted to have the opportunity to further engage in the strategic management of our global businesses. Customer expectations in the industry are evolving fast, and I am proud to take on the operations mantle for a brand that consistently stands out for its forward-thinking mindset and its ability to cater to these evolving consumer needs.”
At the time of writing, pentahotels has a total of 27 operating hotels across seven countries and two continents, with more hotels in the pipeline across Asia and Europe. As the new Vice President Operations, Munt will continue to draw on his hospitality experience, and intimate understanding of Pentahotels’ values, to bring the brand vision life on a global stage.
