Petchey Leisure’s six properties in Europe will continue to be a part of the RCI network of affiliated resorts through a new affiliation agreement between Leisure Dimensions Ltd and RCI.
Petchey Leisure, one of Europe’s leading timeshare brands, was recently acquired by Magnum Global Holdings Singapore Pte. Ltd. (associate of MGM).
The new agreement brings Petchey Leisure and RCI together for an extended affiliation term. Petchey Leisure’s six properties across Portugal, Spain and Tenerife will all be affiliated to RCI, and RCI will be providing white label club servicing for Petchey Leisure’s Infiniti Points, Atlas Weeks, Atlas Points and Genesis Club brands from its call centers.
“RCI invented the exchange business nearly 40 years ago and has been the innovator and leader ever since,” said Isla Murray, project director of Petchey Leisure. “Innovation is important to our business and I believe Petchey Leisure and RCI share the same vision for our industry going forward. We have worked successfully with RCI for many years and we are very happy to continue that partnership – this new agreement is especially important for the continuity of our sales operation.
“In addition, RCI offers exciting technological resources and marketing advantages for us through its international vision, as well as having the largest possible selection of vacation resorts for our owners. We are very pleased to be working with them,” continued Murray.
Dimitris Manikis, vice president, Business Development, RCI Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “We are delighted by Petchey Leisure’s continued commitment to RCI. Magnum Global Holdings Singapore Pte. Ltd. (associate of MGM) is new to our industry and as a hugely successful hospitality company, it brings with it great credibility. The acquisition of the Petchey Leisure brand is a very positive move and instantly makes this group a major player in the European market. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
