Coinciding with Dudley’s appointment, Voco founders Paul Gordon and Michael Foley formally step down from their roles as partners in the business. They remain cornerstone shareholders and non-executive directors.
When not engaged in his lifestyle pursuits, which includes running the New York Marathon later this year, Paul will continue to consult for Voco and provide mentorship to staff. Michael stepped back from day-to-day involvement in early 2017 after being appointed CEO of New Zealand owned cloud hosting provider Umbrellar Group.
Dudley joins Julia Dol who has been a partner since joining Voco in 2014. Prior to her appointment, Julia worked with Vodafone as Head of Enterprise and Government.
