Daniel Finch will become the CEO of Brisbane operations at The Star Entertainment, pending regulatory approvals. 

Finch comes to the role with over 20 years of experience in travel and hospitality, having begun his career in 2000 with his role as an Accommodation and Events Sales Manager for Millenium Mayfair London. 

Other significant roles include a year-and-a-half-tenure as Director of Sales at Sofitel Brisbane Central, and over five and a half years at Constellation Hotel Group as National Director of Sales, Revenue Management and Strategy. His last role saw him take on the position of Managing Director at Expedia Australia, working with the company for over nine years beginning in November 2014.  

His roles have also taken Finch across the globe, with roles in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Asia.  

The announcement comes following the appointment of Jessica Mellor as CEO of Gold Coast operations in October. On Finch’s appointment, Group CEO and Managing Director Robbie Cooke said: “We will have a CEO in each of our venues in Sydney, the Gold Coast and Brisbane. Daniel’s appointment is the second, following Jess Mellor’s promotion to CEO Gold Coast. We are also well advanced in our search for our Sydney CEO.  

“His experience in launching new hotels is also a considerable asset as we prepare to open The Star Brisbane and the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane precinct” 

Finch added that he was “elated” to be joining the team “in what I believe is the most important and exciting time in the history of the business,” noting the importance of The Star Brisbane opening.  

“Together with the team, it will be my ambition to drive a high-performance culture, ensuring five-star services and experiences for the millions who will visit us each year.” 

Finch will formally take on the role in mid-February.
