RBH has appointed Jane Bourque and Debbie Mair to the senior team looking after two new Aberdeen hotels.
The hospitality management company said the pair will join the recently appointed cluster general manager – Mark Leyland – to prepare for the openings of Hilton Aberdeen TECA and Aloft Aberdeen TECA.
Borque has been appointed as cluster hotel manager and Mair will become the cluster director of sales.
The two will bring a combined 40 years’ experience to the hotels. Seasoned hotelier Borque has been working as a general manager for 13 years and will work closely with Leyland to lead the teams across both properties.
Mair has previously undertaken several roles across hospitality and tourism – most recently as director of sales at Crowne Plaza Aberdeen Airport and Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen Airport.
Borque said: “I am excited to be embarking on a new venture with two exciting brands in Aberdeen. I believe that the new conference centre will bring a strong wave of tourism, and our two properties really will provide something to suit everyone.
“I’m very much looking forward to expanding our teams across both hotels in preparation for welcoming locals, as well as visitors from further afield, to experience the new, world-class Event Complex Aberdeen as well as our hotels within it.”
Mair added: “I’m thrilled to join the RBH family, and can’t wait to begin building our teams, and to maximise the opportunities afforded by our presence at The Event Complex Aberdeen to create and build relationships with clients across both hotel brands.”
Hilton Aberdeen TECA hotel, will offer 200 bedrooms and facilities for both residents and non-residents to use.
RBH said the 150-bedroom Aloft Aberdeen TECA will be the first design of its kind in Scotland, and will target the “next generation of travellers”, offering tech-forward amenities, live music and urban-style interiors.
Aloft Aberdeen TECA will be located next door to The Event Complex Aberdeen, whilst Hilton Aberdeen TECA will adjoin the new conference centre, which is currently under construction.
