Former De Vere boss joins board on luxury residential resorts

Andrew Coppel, former chief executive of the De Vere Group, has been appointed as non-executive director on the board of Dolphin Capital Investors (DCI).

He will join the company's strategy and oversight committee immediately and from 1 January 2016 will replace Roger Lane Smith as senior independent director and chairman of the nomination and governance committee. Smith will be retiring from his current role.

Dolphin is an investor in high end residential resorts in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Dominican Republic and Panama.

Miltos Kambourides, founder of Dolphin and managing partner of Dolphin Capital Partners, described Coppel as "a seasoned resort, tourism and real estate professional" who will bring "valuable experience and insights" to the company.

"We look forward to working with Andrew towards implementing our refocused strategic plan as we continue to transform DCI to create maximum shareholder value," he added.

Earlier in his career, Coppel, who was awarded a CBE in 2009 for services to Irish tourism, was chief executive of Queens Moat Houses for 10 years until 2003.
