With work experience including being a bank officer, cafe owner/operator, sales manager for a dynamic import/export company and park manager at BIG4 Forest Glen Holiday Resort for over four years, Kath has a diverse range of business and tourism skills.

In 2012 Kath won the Innovation Centre Sunshine Coast Business Pitch Competition with her Dragons Den style delivery of the MOM business model, and the tagline "take more holidays, spend them in Australia and stay in a holiday park".

Kath is a passionate advocate of Australian tourism and the holiday park industry, and feels fortunate to have found a way to promote both.

Jared Russell

Jared started his career working in family dining restaurants prior to moving into quick service restaurant management before being motivated by a memorable guest experience to join the hotelier world. A world in which he quickly built a reputation for producing positive results and continuously meeting and quite often beating KPI, guests and staff expectations within the industry. After years of honing his skills within the industry as a whole, he is now well versed as a high level systems operator with a wide range of diverse skills across multiple business structures ranging from corporate brands, hotels and independent management rights, as well as being a preopening specialist for a number of large and successful properties. 

Originally from Sydney, Jared has called many parts of Australia home from the East coast right over to the West coast of Australia seeing some amazing sites and meeting a variety of personalities along the way before finding home in Brisbane. 

You'll find Jared in his element working with our PMS training clients, acquisition projects, operations and sales and revenue management.

Matthew Armytage

Matt has been in the accommodation industry for over 20 years. During this time, Matt has gained an abundance of skills in people management and accommodation systems. After completing his Bachelor of Business, Matt had the goal to travel the world and put this theory into practice.

Being a people person, Matt's affinity for this industry stems from his dedication to positive guest experience. Matt is no stranger to customer facing roles and this has fueled his love for our line of work.
