“As part of my role as Product & Purchasing Manager for Thomas Cook Schedule Businesses (including Gold Medal Travel) I have worked closely with Pat Monneron for the past 5years. I found his positive attitude, professionalism and efficient working practices to be a pleasure to work with. So much so, that we currently have over 30 original Mirvac properties in our portfolio, which is an increase of 80% and not reflected with any other hotel chains we work with. Support for our sales teams has been constant and I very much believe that the transition from Mirvac to Accor was made as seamless as possible due to Pat’s involvement. He would be a true asset to any business.”

Rebecca Turner, UK Product & Purchasing Manager for Thomas Cook Schedule Businesses (including Gold Medal Travel)


“With more than 20 years experience in the business selling Australia and New Zealand leisure products to the Germanic markets for the FTI Group, the 4th biggest tour operator in Germany looking after more than 2 million passengers per annum, I was having in the last couple of years several business meetings with Pat Monneron in his Mirvac and later Accor/Mirvac role in Australia as well as in our office here in Munich. Pat was always showing professionalism, pushing the products where needed and he was in most cases successful to bring many and most Mirvac properties into our brochures to the mutual benefit of our customers. He is very reliable, does not overpromise nor under deliver, he is that kind of business partner we love to work with.”

Mr. Dietmar P. Schulz, FTI Group Destination Director, FTI Touristik GmbH


“I commend Pat’s professionalism and high level of customer service. During our dealings with Pat, he has always shown a high degree of integrity, pro activeness and has earned the respect of all of our team and our overseas clients who have always found him very approachable. His knowledge of the tourism industry in general and of the distribution system in particularly is comprehensive. I strongly recommend Pat’s services to a prospective employer for his talent in management and leadership to perform his duties with complete honesty, enthusiasm and discretion.”

Cinzia Burnes, Chief Operating Officer, Director, AOT Group


“Pat worked with us at ATS Pacific as our Account Manager for a period of over 10 years in sales roles at Radisson Hotels (Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group), Mirvac Hotels & Resorts where he was Group Sales Manager – Leisure and more recently with Accor Hotels acquiring Mirvac Hotels & Resorts, where he was Group Director of Leisure Sales with Accor Australia & New Zealand Hospitality. During the time he worked with ATS Pacific, Pat was well organised, efficient, extremely competent, showed strong attention to detail and demonstrated he understood the needs of our company as well as our clients. He was personable and he was a pleasure to work with. I have great respect for him as an individual and as a professional and are confident that Pat will be a valuable asset for any organisation.” 

Inga Afheldt, Managing Director, and Sian Armour, General Manager Product, ATS Pacific


“I have known Pat for many years in mainly a professional sense and have always found him engaging, extremely professional and a great ambassador for his company. Add to this a great sense of humor and humilty and you have a very well rounded individual who is well respected within the Tourism and Hospitality industry not just here in Australia but overseas as well. Pat receives only my highest recommendation and best wishes for future endeavours.” 

Ian Clark General Manager Supplier Relations, The Travel Corporation


“This is a letter of support for Pat Monneron whom I have known for the past 15 years.  Pat has been an active participant in the tourism industry through a range of roles in the sector. I have had a close association with Pat particularly through his role as a corporate partner of the Australian Tourism Export Council with Mirvac Hotels and recently at Accor. I find Pat to be a highly principled and dedicated professional and who displays a great passion to grow tourism in Australia. I would highly recommend for any role in the tourism and travel industry.”

Gary O’Riordan, General Manager, Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC)


“I have had the pleasure of working with Pat Monneron for many years.  In this time he has always been a true professional in his career and it is because of his persistence, dedication, loyalty & passion that we have given him much of our business for some of the key properties that he was responsible for.  Our clients are very high end and can be demanding.  If there was ever an issue he was quick to respond and alleviate any further negative developments.  I wish him luck for his future career and would have no hesitation in recommending him.”

Kathie Sikkes, General Manager, Abercrombie & Kent (Australia)


“Pat’s leadership and business acumen make him a vital element of any business fortunate enough to include him. He is pure joy to work with and I have had the benefit to learn from him while being part of his various teams over 10 years at 2 companies.”
