Mr. Healy is British and hails from Jersey Channel Islands and is married to a Filipina. He is an accomplished Chef and an experienced hotelier with 33 years of capital knowledge in the hospitality industry.  He has worked in numerous multi-national chain of hotels in Europe, Singapore, Malaysia, Shanghai, and the Philippines. He was the Executive Chef of Renaissance Hotel Makati from 2004 to 2008 and then he moved to Thailand and China thereafter.

“I wish to continue the legacy of Marco Polo Davao as the Heart of Davao and I believe it’s all about people taking care of people. The reason I came back to the Philippines was that my family and my children are based here. Also, the hotel is prestigious and has been here for 21 years and it has the perfect potential to move forward to become known as what we are, the heart of Davao,” said Mr. Colin Healy during an afternoon tea gathering with Davao online and print media.
