New general manager for Calile Hotel

Chris Kemlo joins TFE Hotels from Crown Resorts and brings almost 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry.

TFE Hotels has appointed Chris Kemlo as general manager of The Calile Hotel in Brisbane.

Having been named 12th in the list of the World’s Best Hotels last year, Kemlo says there were not many hotels in Australia that could have sparked his interest like The Calile.

“I have been lucky enough to work with some amazing luxury brands,” he says.

“When this opportunity came up, I had to jump at the chance.

“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.”

TFE Hotels COO Chris Sedgwick says Kemlo’s leadership skills, attention to detail and service, along with his commercial acumen, are a strong fit for The Calile.

“It takes a dedicated team to continually deliver elevated guest experiences across rooms, conferencing, events and food and beverage,” he says.

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

Kemlo has already begun his new role and joins from Crown Resorts where he spent 14 of his almost 20 years in the industry.
