The Team

Craig Coughlin

 

Chief Executive Officer

Craig joined LUXXE in 2015 with a clear vision of where he wanted to take LUXXE to; so much so that in 2017 he executed a management buyout and purchased the business from the Beddison Group. He manages all aspects of business development and provides support to the operational leadership team from our Melbourne office. Having graduated dux from the Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School, and worked as a hospitality professional since 1990, Craig brings with him a wealth of knowledge from the hotel and outsourcing industries.

 

Some of the leading hotel chains that Craig has worked for include SPHC, ACCOR Hotels, Radisson, Rydges Hotels & Resorts and TFE Hotels.

 

With a successful career across both operations and business development, Craig is focused on providing exceptional service delivery to clients while growing the business through flexible outsourced solutions.
