The Calile Hotel welcomes Chris Kemlo as general manager

Chris Kemlo is the new general manager of The Calile Hotel.

TFE Hotels has appointed Chris Kemlo as general manager of The Calile Hotel in Brisbane, which was named Best Hotel in Oceania in The World’s 50 Best Hotels last year.

With a career spanning more than 18 years in the industry, Kemlo worked in Crown Resorts for 14 years including leadership positions with Crown Resorts in Melbourne and more recently with Crown Towers Sydney.

“I have been lucky enough to work with some amazing luxury brands and hotel openings however, when this opportunity came up, I had to jump at the chance,” he said.

“Not only is Queensland a beautiful place to bring up a young family, but The Calile is a stunning property with a team that are equally passionate about representing the brand.

“My job will be to take a guest approach, people approach and a business approach to make sure we have the right systems and operational processes in place.

“This, in turn, will further enhance the already highly regarded guest experience and take us to the next level.”

TFE Hotels Group COO Chris Sedgwick said Kemlo’s experience made him a strong fit for The Calile.

“It takes a dedicated team to continually deliver elevated guest experiences across rooms, conferencing, events and F&B,” he said.

“And Chris’ experience in the luxury sector is certainly a welcome addition to the team.”
