New MD Talsma to build Rapport

Rapport has announced the appointment of Dirk Talsma as its new managing director. He will be taking over from current MD Greg Mace, who will be stepping down at the end of July.
Talsma’s early career included spells in some of UK’s finest hotels. He then moved into a regional manager role for a collection of private country estates, before joining Rapport as head of operations in 2015.

Matthew Thomas, managing director of RA Group, said: “Greg leaves behind a fantastic legacy, having set up and run the business over the past 10 years. He has grown Rapport into the successful front-of-house and guest services market leading proposition it is now, which has also seen it expand into other countries.

“Dirk brings great passion and expertise to the role. I have no doubt will continue to deliver the exceptional service to clients and customers that Rapport has become renowned for.”

Talsma added: “I am looking forward to leading Rapport, following what has been a really challenging time for our teams and clients. I feel exceptionally privileged to have been under Greg’s mentorship over the last five years and will continue to build on the legacy that he leaves behind.”
