“With almost 40 years of combined TFE Hotels’ tenure, these senior executives will facilitate our international networks to optimise our business outcomes as we continue our global expansion.”

Brisbane-based Amanda Hoolihan has taken on the newly created global revenue officer role, Shahnaz Bakhshay is the new global sales officer and Katia Giurtalis joins the senior leadership team as global marketing officer.

“The growth that has been reflected in Amanda’s innovative analytic adaptions has played a large part of the rapid recovery for TFE Hotels, post pandemic,” Ritch said.

“And I’m pleased to see Amanda step up into a global role.”

Bakhshay has led the sales division in ANZ since 2016.

“In her new global role, Shahnaz will ensure sales best practice is implemented across all teams and synergies in order to maximise business opportunities and streamline standardise systems and processes,” Ritch said.

“I am excited to see Shahnaz take on this challenge, particularly as markets are recovering and trends are emerging in global travel post pandemic.”

Ritch also announced the formation of a wider global leadership team that will see Tish Nyar move into a senior director of operations ANZ role.
