Edgar Ollé joins Christie & Co as Managing Director of Spain and Portugal
International hotel property adviser, Christie & Co are pleased to announce that Edgar Ollé has been appointed as Managing Director of Spain and Portugal and has joined the team, working from the Barcelona office. His objective will be to continue to grow the transactional and consultancy activities across the region, where the company is very well positioned with a strong and experienced team.
Edgar was previously an executive director at Marriott International and his previous roles will bring to Christie & Co a strong network of investors and owners, both locally and internationally. He will bring a wealth of experience with his knowledge of operator and brand selection, whilst his exposure in Portugal will allow Christie & Co to intensify activity in the region.
Darren Bond, Global Managing Director of Christie & Co comments, “We are delighted to welcome Edgar to the business. He brings significant experience to our team, and we look forward to further growing our activity in Spain and Portugal. Edgar replaces Inma Ranera, who recently left Christie & Co after 21 years as Managing Director. Inma helped to establish our business in the Spain and Portugal region and I would like to thank her for all of her contribution over this period.”
Edgar comments, “I have been working with Christie & Co for the last 10 years in several different roles, and when the opportunity to lead the Spanish and Portuguese company was given to me, I couldn’t refuse, as I know most of the team and how committed they are to the company. The market is in a very interesting cycle and recovery is around the corner. Everyday there is more activity and I believe it is the right time to join a company which has more than 85 years of experience. Due to the busy market, we will be looking to add new members to the team to grow both the transactional and consultancy business lines.”
