Baillie Lodges has announced tourism and hospitality professional Craig Bradbery will join the company in the newly created role of General Manager in August.

The appointment will see Craig steer the Baillie Lodges portfolio of luxury properties to the next stage of development, whilst also assuming the day-to-day management of the business.

Baillie Lodges owners James and Hayley Baillie will turn their attention to future opportunities for the business including evaluating the potential of new lodge developments in Australia.

The new structure will also allow the life-and-business partners to maintain their dedication to high-level product operations, innovations and design, and continue their commitment to delivering the outstanding guest experience which has defined the Baillie Lodges offering.

With a career in hotels and hospitality spanning more than 23 years, Craig has operated as a General Manager and Project Manager for a range of Australian hotels including at the family-owned Erdi Group, Accor Hotels and at P&O Australian Resorts, where he first met and worked with James Baillie.

As part of his role as General Manager of Operations at P&O Australian Resorts, Craig oversaw the concept, planning and development of some of Australia’s best-known luxury destinations, including the former Wrotham Park Lodge, Wilson Island and Lizard Island properties in North Queensland.

Baillie Lodges Managing Director James Baillie said he was delighted to welcome Craig to the close-knit team.

‘Hayley and I are excited to be embarking on a new phase for Baillie Lodges, and from our 15 years’ experience we know this requires dedication in time and energy,” Mr Baillie said.

‘Having worked with Craig and followed his career in management roles in the Australian hotel industry, I believe he will fit in well with the culture at Baillie Lodges and become a valued leader and mentor for the team’.

Craig will commence his role as Baillie Lodges General Manager on August 22, 2017 and spend time at each of the luxury lodges for a full experience of the product before settling into the company’s Sydney-based headquarters.

The Baillie Lodges portfolio of luxury properties currently includes Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island, Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island and Longitude 131° at Uluru-Kata Tjuta.
