Ovolo Group expands Dave Baswal’s role

Ovolo Group has expanded the role of Dave Baswal to managing director ANZ after leading the Australian arm of the business since 2016.

“I joined Ovolo Group’s Australian team with a goal of driving the brand’s further expansion into the Australian market,” said Baswal.

“I have no intention of slowing down and with a great team behind me I will be able to focus on the strategic direction of the business in this region, acquisition and development projects to give Ovolo an even stronger footprint in this region.”

Alongside the group’s Creative F&B Director Vince Lombino, Baswal has helped create some innovative F&B concepts which add to the Ovolo experience, including Australia’s first hotel plant-based restaurant Alibi.

“In a time of continued expansion for Ovolo, it is imperative to further bolster the Australian team with continued strong leadership and oversite, particularly with the launch of Ovolo South Yarra in early April and through this temperamental recovery period for the rest of Australia,” Ovolo Group CEO Girish Jhunjhnuwala said.
