New faces on Millbrook payroll


Arrowtown’s Millbrook Resort has taken on two seasoned locals in separate sales functions.

Julia Blanchard joins Millbrook’s property and membership sales team while Julie Jolley will handle wholesale and group sales for the resort side of the business.

Jolley, a top 50 finalist in the 2009 TV series The Apprentice New Zealand, was formerly business development manager at Queenstown’s Crowne Plaza hotel and has 10 years of hotel and destination marketing experience.

Blanchard, who’s previously worked in local real estate for Locations and Fletcher Living at Jack’s Point, will join veteran realtor Austin Bragg to continue Millbrook’s seven-day property sales service, resort property and development manager Ben O’Malley says.

Over Easter, Millbrook opened two new show homes.
