Hotel Manager of COMO The Treasury

Anneke Brown, originally from Perth, has spent her career travelling the world with hospitality.

It was evident that even as a young child Anneke was destined to work in hotels, and a sketch of a beach side resort at the age of 12 years, during a holiday overseas, sent that message loud and clear to her parents. However with the intention of making a successful career out of hospitality, Anneke was keen to gain a strong business grounding which led her to complete a Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Western Australia. During her years as a student Anneke worked in the hospitality industry in Perth, starting as a waitress at the Subiaco Hotel, Perth.

After several hospitality roles in Australia, Anneke moved overseas with the luxury group Amanresorts. It was during her tenure with Amanresorts that she was exposed to the world of hotel projects. She was fortunate enough to be part of the project team for 8 resort openings from Cambodia to India, Bhutan to Sri Lanka and finally the Caribbean.

Anneke returned to Australia to a boutique hotel in Margaret River and then on to manage an Australian luxury icon – Longitude 131 out at Uluru. Returning to Australia was a dream come true and Longitude 131 offered an international standard level of service which Anneke was proud to lead.

The lure of such an incredible project was what bought Anneke back to Perth. She commenced working on the Old Treasury project in April 2014 and is looking forward to delivering an international standard hotel to the Perth market.
