Ian Manley from ManleySocial says, "It's a great privilege to be invited to represent such a young and dynamic hotel group founded in South Africa, with already a foothold into East Africa and the Indian Ocean Island and now set to make a significant presence into Central Europe."

"Newmark has also shown leadership and fortitude during the shared global Black Swan event of the COVID-19 pandemic, making the brand truly authentic and hospitality-driven," adds Manley.

"Ian and Lise Manley represented Newmark between 2007 and 2009 during the launch phase of the business that included the opening of the Dock House Boutique Hotel and the Queen Victoria Hotel both situated in the V&A Waterfront," says Neil Markovitz, CEO of Newmark hotels, residences, reserves and lodges.

"The timing is now right to re-engage with the dynamic PR couple as we enter a phase of exponential growth within the company and my team and I very much look forward to reigniting the association," concludes Markovitz.
