Two new faces at Porters

Porters Boutique Hotel in Havelock North has welcomed two new faces to its team in 2017, Kylie Fernandes, general manager, and Carly Evans sales and conference coordinator.

Fernandes has been working in the industry for 20 years in four- and five-star hotels in both New Zealand and Australia.

In 2015 was the property manager of the Navigate Seaside Hotel.  

She has spent the last six months overseeing both the Navigate Seaside Hotel and Porters Boutique Hotel,  officially moving to the Porters Boutique Hotel full time in the role of GM on 1 September.

Evans joined the team in October on a part-time basis, and is responsible for maximising bookings for the hotel’s function spaces and accommodation.

She moved across from Sydney in May 2016 to settle in Hawke’s Bay and have worked in the travel industry since 2000 with varied sales, business development and management roles with retail travel agencies, tour operators and cruise lines.
