Karen van Oene
Financial Controller

Reconciliation, invoicing and credit control - across hotel and events are all within Karen’s jurisdiction - to provide sound financial stewardship and strategy to PHR’s accounts division. Her position involves significant interaction and involvement with payments and monies due. Other FC responsibilities include forecasting, analysis, and financial reporting.
Having been here for 14 years, it almost seems like another lifetime ago - but her finance experience comes from working for P&O in the UK, she originally comes from South Africa. Karen says one of the scariest things she's ever done was move country. Sun City in South Africa is still her favourite place for a holiday and lists her greatest achievement as becoming a mum of 4 (and keeping her sanity!)

Best TV moments are watching re-runs of Hawaii Five 0 and 24. And a big Lionel Richie fan, obsessive, some might say… (including Lionel :)

we love what we do
and so do our clients

} "The service is excellent. Once I had to cancel a booking last minute and despite being just past the cut off we were not charged. PHR are always happy to try hotels which we suggest ourselves and obtain good rates. The service is easy to use and saves our employees having to pay for their own hotels and then wait a month before they receive their expenses back."
