Nick Ellis


A tourism veteran of 20 years, Nick has climbed the ranks through every operational role in hotels starting off as a room service attendant then progressing through food and beverage, front office, guest services and reservations. This gave him the experience to subsequently move into management and leadership roles in Front Office, Rooms Division and Food and Beverage.

Nick’s career has spanned numerous destinations and brands including Sofitel Luxury Hotels, Stamford Hotels & Resorts, Royal on the Park, Mantra Hotels, Pullman Hotels and Peppers Retreats. Prior to breathing new life as GM into Brisbane’s boutique Ovolo Inchcolm, Nick was the pre-opening GM for a new lifestyle brand, Tribe Hotels.

Nick’s effervescent personality and engaging style has seen his success in product and people development and his keen interest in innovation and technology has led him to his current challenge re-launching a leading Queensland-grown hotel tech provider onto the worldwide stage.

"Tourism is shaped around creating genuine experiences for everyone. Those we service are after lifelong memories of the aspiration destinations we live and breathe. Those who work in the industry gain friends, skills & experiences they keep for life. It’s win win for everyone"
