Andrea Róna will be responsible for the further expansion and development of Danubius Hotels, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, by joining the management team.

Andrea Róna graduated from Budapest Business School with a Bachelor's degree in Hotel Administration and Management and a Master's degree in International Relations. She started her professional career with the Hilton Group as a Meetings Manager.

In 2002, she joined Corinthia Hotel as Travel Sales and Marketing Manager before taking over the management of the Pólus Palace Thermal Golf Club Hotel one year later. She returned to Corinthia Hotel in 2006 as Assistant Manager in Sales and Marketing.

Two years later, she became head of hospitality development at QUAESTOR. She held this position for over 3 years before becoming Head of Brand and Business Development and Asset Manager for Granit Polus Management. Hilton Budapest City, Westend Shopping Centre, Papp Laszlo Budapest Sports Arena and Arena Catering are among her portfolio assets.

In 2020, she joins AVA-Advisors as Partner and Senior Advisor with the objective of assisting and advising on real estate development projects, brand building and renewal processes, real estate transactions, corporate audits and asset management.

In her new role at Danubius Hotels, she will be responsible for the strategic and operational coordination of the group's expansion and development, the acquisition and operation of additional hotels and the identification of new areas for expansion. 

I am delighted that Andrea Róna, an experienced professional, is joining us. Danubius Hotels has a proven track record in hospitality management over the past 50 years. We are confident that with Andrea's experience we will be able to use this knowledge in the next phase of our expansion. Our goal is to continue our successful expansion as a hotel operator in the national and European market. [...] After two difficult years, tourism is recovering. Although the environment around us is always unpredictable, this excellent team has proven that it can achieve fantastic results even in less favourable circumstances. And our owners, who trust Danubius' expertise, are committed to developing the hotel chain and to long-term planning.
