Clive Scott, Accor’s general manager of Sofitel Melbourne On Collins, has been named in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).
The honour was given to only 252 recipients in 2021, with Scott chosen for his significant service to the hotel industry and to the arts.
“I am humbled by this award and I hope my endeavours over the years have supported artists of all kinds to fulfil their artistic endeavours,” said Scott.
“My work in the arts and hospitality has been richly fulfilling for me personally and I hope I can do more into the future.”
Scott has been the general manager of Sofitel Melbourne On Collins for the past 16 years, making him one of the longest running hotel general managers in Melbourne. He is also Chairman of the Visitor Economy Taskforce for the Committee for Melbourne.
“I am incredibly proud to see Clive Scott recognised amongst such revered company in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List,” Accor Pacific CEO Simon McGrath said.
“Clive is dedicated to raising the profile and advancing tourism and the arts in Australia and this honour is a great recognition of his hard work and the significant impact he has made.”
