RBH’S Chief Executive Officer, Helder Pereira, was in the hot seat today at the 2018 Hotel Operations Conference.

Helder took to the stage at the annual event, held in London’s Marble Arch, for a one-to-one interview with Hotel Analyst’s Andrew Sangster – discussing the complex relationship between operating companies (the ‘opco’) and property companies (the ‘propco’).

The wide range of topics covered included Helder’s own experience as a hotelier within the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, the increasing popularity and advantages of the ‘Propco/Opco’ financing model, synergies between RBH and the Propco and the challenges within the relationship – among others.

The discussion took place in front of representatives from some of the world’s most influential and recognisable hospitality brands – including RBH partners like InterContinental Hotel Group, Marriott International, and Wyndham International.

Helder Pereira, Chief Executive Officer at RBH, said:

I was pleased to be invited to take part in the one-to-one discussion with Andrew, on what is a hugely important topic within the industry at the moment. Given that RBH manages operations at more than 70 hotels across various branded and independent properties, it was a great opportunity to cover a range of topics from an operating company point of view. I hope those who came along took as much from the session as I did.”
