South African-based hospitality management company PMR Hospitality Partners has announced its merger with USA-based Valor Hospitality Partners.
Formed in 2013 by Co-owners and Managing Partners Tony Romer-Lee, Euan McGlashan, Michael Pownall and Graham Wood, PMR Hospitality Partners will now operate as Valor Hospitality Partners Africa.
The company has five properties across Africa, including Spier Wine Estate, Garonga Safari Camp, The Lord Milner Hotel and De Hoek Country Hotel, and will soon be welcoming the Blaauwberg Beach Hotel into its portfolio. Opening later this year, the 140-room hotel and conference facility was built over a nine year period and offers fantastic views of False Bay and Table Mountain.
Valor Hospitality Partners manages more than 40 hotels in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia, with another 10 properties in the pipeline. Its portfolio includes a diverse range of properties, such as luxury boutique hotels, game reserves, independent resorts and city hotels.
Its status as a go-to management company is driven by its ability to share systems, processes, critical industry thinking and intellectual capital between senior executive staff, offering global strategic leadership across four continents.
Valor Hospitality Partners Founder Euan McGlashan noted: “We all realised that joining forces globally made perfect sense and, in a business where multiple management companies exist yet none with our full-service strength, professionalism and abilities, merging was a massive win – win for both parties. Our perfectly aligned core values of integrity, courage, transparency and tenacity along with our combined owner-centric views of delivering award-winning employee engagement and culture wrapped in a top- and bottom-line commerciality mindset, mean we could not be more pleased to have found a partner with such a strong cultural fit with a longstanding, highly regarded reputation in the hospitality industry.”
