Top gong for Queenstown hotelier


Queenstown hotelier Lynne McVicar was yesterday (Thursday) named as Senior Hotel Executive of the Year.

The award was announced at the end of the New Zealand Hotel Industry Conference in Auckland.

McVicar has been general manager of Hotel St Moritz since it opened in 1998.

After almost 10 years as an accountant, she entered hotel executive management in 1994, as a financial controller.
NZ Hotel Council chair Jennie Langley states: “With an impressive and sustained track record within her hotel and the wider community, Lynne is an extremely worthy recipient of the award.”

McVicar – a Destination Queenstown board member – also took out the NZ Hotel General Manager of the Year gong in the HM Awards, covering NZ and Australia, last August.
