Former principal takes on executive role at Wyndham

Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific,  Liz Collinson

After three years as principal of her own firm, one legal professional has been appointed as senior vice president legal and compliance at Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific.

Liz Collinson (pictured) has been welcomed to the executive role at Wyndham, following three years of heading up her own firm Elizabeth Collinson, Barrister & Solicitor. Prior to this, Ms Collinson spent 12 years living in Singapore, gaining more than 10 years’ experience as senior vice president legal and general counsel at InterContinental Hotels Group Asia Pacific.

In her new position, Ms Collinson will be based at Wyndham’s Gold Coast corporate office where she will be responsible for “providing strategic legal advice in respect of compliance with applicable securities and managed investment legislation, property and corporate acquisitions, consumer financing, commercial contracts and leases, hotel management and franchise agreements, dispute resolution, and employment and industrial relations matters”, according to a statement from the company.

Reporting to Wyndham president and managing director Barry Robinson, as well as the US-based Wyndham Vacation Ownership general counsel, Ms Collinson’s new role sees her oversee the company’s legal and compliance team, which is domiciled across offices on the Gold Coast and Singapore.

Ms Collinson brings to her new role extensive experience in all aspects of international hospitality law, including multi-jurisdictional hotel and resort development, regulatory compliance, investment, capital expenditure and business model review and development.

She also brings vast expertise in asset acquisition and sale, joint ventures, management contracts, franchising and investment funds, employment law, litigation and intellectual property protection.
