Karen Naylor - Village Manager

Karen has enjoyed several years in the hospitality industry, with opening a 5 star resort in Broome in my capacity of General Manager, National Sales Manager for Rendezvous Apartments. Recently I was employed by the Chairman of Quest Apartment Hotels, as his Corporate Sales Manager to promote his private collection of 30 Apartments to the corporate clients and working with procurement, COO and CFO.

Karen’s professional engagement within the retirement industry started as Village Manager of AVEO Taringa, this was immediately post the 2011 floods. Soon after this appointment, AVEO Management appointed me to be their new cluster manager for AVEO Clayfield and AVEO Newmarket whilst keeping on with Taringa. My work within the retirement village journey continues now with Tranquil Retirement Group with managerial and operational oversight of both Tranquil Waters Beachfront Retirement Living and Ormiston Rise, both based in the Redlands.

Karen’s philosophy about retirement village is to ensure that my residents are treated with respect, dignity and as individuals. Karen enjoys offering a new service standards in all she does within the villages and ensures her staff are on the same page with rapport, respective, teamwork and tolerance. Collectively, Karen ensures the residents care and lifestyle is vibrant, caring and in a nurturing community.

When not being a village manager, the weekends you will see me in and around Brisbane umpiring for Queensland Cricket and at times for Cricket Australia. With winter just around the corner I do enjoy warehouse cricket where only 1 umpire per game is given and something to really keep you on your toes.
