General Manager, Crowne Plaza, Christchurch
Reinier has over 25 years’ experience in the hotel industry covering a number of large international hotels throughout London and New Zealand.
Reinier joined the InterContinental Hotels Group in 2008 at Holiday Inn Wellington before moving to Christchurch in 2010 as General Manager of Holiday Inn City Centre.
After the Christchurch earthquakes, Reinier relocated to Crowne Plaza Queenstown where he was General Manager for 6+ successful years.
In 2017 the opportunity to open the new Crowne Plaza Christchurch meant that Reinier and family relocated back to Christchurch. With the city recovering from the earthquakes there are exciting times ahead with some of the major anchor projects finishing over the coming years.
Reinier has been Deputy Chairman of the Central City Business Association in Christchurch and is currently Chair of the Board of Trustees at Merrin School. Originally from The Netherlands, Reinier now calls New Zealand home.
