Australia: Flight Centre founder Graham Turner is set to launch a hotel management company.
Turner and his wife Jude own and manage seven boutique properties in south-east Queensland and northern NSW under the Spicers brand, but he is now looking to branch out.
“We are interested in properties coming under our management but owned by other people. We have a couple of opportunities we are looking at in the medium term,” Turner told The Australian. “We want to get more properties on board if they fit our proportions. We are not necessarily buying or building them ourselves. We believe we are at the stage where we can manage and operate properties under the Spicers brand for other people.”
