“I am incredibly excited to join the passionate QT Wellington team and am truly looking forward to the challenge ahead,” he said. “Wellington is a city full of culture and creativity and I couldn’t be more thrilled to spearhead QT as the ultimate city hub.”

Simon White, general manager operations New Zealand – EVENT Hotels & Resorts, said they were delighted to welcome Charlton to the Wellington team.

“He lives and breathes the QT brand, so he’ll be able to jump right in with quintessential QT flair,” White said.

“Ian’s strong operations background demonstrates his grasp on both revenue growth and caretaking. He will be an indispensable asset as QT Wellington continues to make its mark as the premier hotel and home to award-winning restaurants in the capital.”
