Mark Burns has been appointed GM at Pullman Cairns International.

Mark Burns has been appointed as general manager of Pullman Cairns International hotel.

In his new role, Burns will be tasked with the reinvention of Pullman’s food and beverage venues.

As the former general manager of the five-star Fullerton Hotel Sydney, he oversaw the hotel’s complete conversion and re-branding from The Westin Sydney in 2019.

His appointment comes as the 321-room Pullman moves into the final phase of a major refurbishment program which began in mid-2021.

“Mark’s experience in the five-star sector and talent for elegant, upscale makeovers make him the perfect person to take the helm at this crucial time,” said Sarah Derry, CEO of Accor Pacific.

“He has an incredible ability to reinvent a hotel in terms of service culture and food and beverage and will undoubtedly lead the Pullman team to create a special guest experience.”
