Campbell Gray Hotels appointed Alan O’Dea as its new managing director. He joins the Campbell Gray Hotels team following a 20-year career in the hospitality sector.
Further to gaining a degree in Hotel & Catering Management at the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology in his native Ireland, O’Dea has since held a number of senior positions within globally-recognized hospitality groups including, most recently, spending 12 years with the Swiss-based Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts where he resided in Paris, Zurich, Cairo and Dubai in his role as senior vice president Africa.
Prior to joining Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, O’Dea was regional director of revenue management France for InterContinental Hotels Group and director of revenue management for Le Meridien Hotels in Paris.
Through his time spent working in Dubai, O’Dea developed a deep understanding of – and connection to – the Middle East, leaving him perfectly positioned to take up his new role at Campbell Gray Hotels, whose flagship properties include Le Gray in Beirut, Campbell Gray Living Hotel & Residences in Amman, Jordan, The Phoenicia in Malta, and the soon to open, The Merchant House in Bahrain.Add to Favorites
