A legacy born from the belief in doing better
Perfection in hospitality relies on many moving parts working in rhythm with one another.
A Legacy Begins
I found my calling in the 1980s at Melbourne’s first serious 5-star international hotel, The Hilton on the Park, looking across the verdant Fitzroy Gardens towards the CBD and across to one of the world’s most iconic arenas, the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The city’s movers and shakers descended in droves.
It was there that I learned the art of silver service, what it meant to go beyond the expected, and what innovation truly means. It was fast-paced and high-pressured, and I loved it.
It’s been a while since I’ve pulled on the white gloves, but what I took away from that time, a knock-about Greek kid who grew up in his family’s cafés, was that there’s inimitable beauty
and pride in doing things better than they’ve ever been done before.
This mentality inspired me to create IHS and, throughout the decades, it remains our guiding principle. I noticed because I cared. I strived to build something better because there’s no
finer feeling than giving your all to something and nothing more satisfying than seeing this shift the entire shape of your industry by moving it forward.
The way we think, the way we create and the way we deliver…it must move you.
