Accor Vacation Club congratulates scholarship star, Lachlan

by / Tuesday, 22 January 2019 / Published in Latest News

Congratulations to Accor Vacation Club’s very own rising star, Lachlan Franklin, who has been awarded a scholarship to finish his studies at The international College of Management Sydney (ICMS)!

The ICMS partners with AccorHotels to award a student studying a Bachelor or Hospitality Management (Business Management or Event Management) with funding towards tuition and potential graduate employment. The support is awarded to a student who displays enthusiasm and motivation for the hospitality industry and whose aptitude, academic results and previous or current work experience fit with AccorHotels’ business goals.

Lachlan was brought up on a country farm in Hawkes Bay New Zealand where is ambition was to always become a farmer, like his father. This changed when he was 17 years old and worked part time at a café. Meeting new people and creating memorable experiences for guests got him hooked on working in the hospitality industry. Once he finished high school, he studied a diploma of hospitality management at Queenstown Resort College and graduated in 2015.

He is currently studying a Bachelor of Business Management in Manly at ICMS, and working part time at The Sebel Manly Beach, managed by Accor Vacation Club.

Accor Vacation Club applauds Lachlan, and wishes him all the best with his studies and future development!
