Opal Age Care

Rachel Argaman is CEO of Opal Age Care. Prior to this role Rachel was CEO of TFE Hotels (Toga Far East Hotels).

With over 20 years of international experience at executive management level in the travel and hospitality industry, Rachel has a passion for creating a results-oriented, responsive and market-driven culture within companies. This is backed by a driving belief that the success of businesses depends on the quality of the people they employ.

Rachel has a proven track record of increasing sales, global market share and profitability. She is goal-oriented and focused on the accelerated growth of TFE Hotels and their brands: Adina Apartment Hotels, Travelodge Hotels, Rendezvous Hotels, Medina Serviced Apartments, and Vibe Hotels. Her experience includes managing company growth, takeover and integration, the establishment of new brands, and ensuring the success of TFE Hotels’ incubator business in Europe.

Rachel’s success to date has been recognized by various industry and business awards. 2012 Rachel was presented with the prestigious 'Fellow of the International Centre of Excellence Award.' In 2014 she was the HotelsWorld 'First Award' winner, in 2010 was named HM Magazine’s Hotelier of the Year, and in 2008 the Telstra National Corporate Businesswoman of the Year.

Rachel has also participated in the Australian version of Undercover Boss, allowing her to see her company through a 'different lens' as she worked on the front line of the business, a move which facilitated ongoing changes for the way Toga’s senior management team supports the business.

TFE Hotels’ charitable focus is on helping the homeless. To that end, all their hotels donate good quality leftover food to OzHarvest, and Rachel is currently a Director of the OzHarvest Board.

Rachel holds an MBA in Service Industry Management and is passionate about customer service.

Born in England and raised in South Africa, Rachel (together with her husband and three children) now calls Australia home.
