Robert McGufficke has been appointed general manager of Rydges Resort Hunter Valley and area general manager Hunter Region.
Rydges general manager hotel operations Troy Cuthbertson said the appointment marks an important new chapter for the property.
McGufficke most recently oversaw EVT’s Southeast Queensland and Northern NSW regions while rolling out group-wide food and beverage initiatives.
“I have always enjoyed the challenge of managing hotels with significant conferencing, food and beverage focus,” McGufficke said.
“The opportunity to join the exceptional team at Rydges Resort Hunter Valley and oversee the region is a dream job. NSW’s largest regional conference centre, sensational rooms and villas, golf, fantastic food and beverage outlets including Lovedale Bar and Grill and a raft of new developments in the pipeline such as Dr Schwartz’s Sydney Brewery on site.
“It is an exciting time for the property, and I look forward to contributing to its continued success.”
