A further two team members have joined the ranks at two highly-anticipated Aberdeen hotels – as the countdown to both openings continues.

Emily Mackenzie and Ross Allerton have joined the senior team for Hilton Aberdeen TECA and Aloft Aberdeen TECA, led by Cluster General Manager, Mark Leyland.

Emily (22) has taken on the role of Cluster Marketing Executive while Ross (31) has stepped into the position of Cluster Sales Manager.

Young marketer Emily previously worked at Aberdeen Journals as a marketing assistant, whilst Ross kicked off his career at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in 2011, as a sales executive, before moving onto bookings and reservations at Trump International Golf Links.

Emily said:

I am thrilled to have joined the RBH family, and to have come on board at such an exciting time for both Hilton Aberdeen TECA and Aloft Aberdeen TECA. The opening will be an exciting and challenging time for the whole team, but I am eager to bring all the experience I have to the table on what will be an incredible journey.”

Ross added:

I am looking forward to working with the senior team, bringing all of our knowledge and expertise together to create exceptional experiences for business and leisure guests at both properties.


This is an exciting time for Event Complex Aberdeen and I can’t wait to be part of the developments, particularly given the fact that I started my career at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.”

Hilton Aberdeen TECA hotel will offer 200 stylish bedrooms. The hotel will have exceptional facilities for both residents and non-residents to use.

The 150-bedroom Aloft Aberdeen TECA will be the first design of its kind in Scotland. The hotel will target the next generation of travellers, offering tech-forward amenities, live music and urban-style interiors.

Aloft Aberdeen TECA will be located just next door to The Event Complex Aberdeen, whilst Hilton Aberdeen TECA will adjoin the new conference centre, which is currently under construction.
