Mr. Allender

Robert Allender

Founder, Energy Resources Management

Robert Allender is adviser to the hotel industry on energy management excellence, a role he been filling since 1992. These over 20 years of advising boards, senior management, and aspiring hotel owners on the part that energy management excellence can play in their fortunes has resulted in Mr. Allender becoming one of Asia's most well regarded energy management experts and sustainability thought-leaders.

Mr. Allender's company, Energy Resources Management has developed proprietary tools which allow clients to extract maximum value from every dollar they spend on energy, and to move beyond thinking of energy as a cost to be minimized and instead treating it as a resource to be managed.

As a former hotelier (six years with Westin back in the days when it was Western International Hotels) and the first Australian to graduate from the Hotel School at Cornell) Mr. Allender has been able to tailor services that deliver exactly what a specific hotel needs by incorporating each hotel's unique technological, financial, operational, contractual, and managerial profile.

Leading his company's drive into an expanding suite of services including sophisticated hotel-industry-specific energy management maturity assessments, energy management road-map creation, and tools to turn energy management excellence into a brand asset, Mr. Allender's work has resulted in clients producing tens of millions of dollars of fresh profit and brand value.

Mr. Allender contributed a number of entries to the International Encyclopedia of Hospitality Management, edited by A Pizam and published by Elsevier, and later to the similarly arranged International Dictionary of Hospitality Management. He has also taught the Macquarie Graduate School of Management masters degree course on Hospitality Property and Facilities Management.
