I am Cristina, a professional with 6 years of experience in the world of tourism and hotel management.
I have just left the Maldives where I was working as Sales and Marketing Manager for USA-LATAM-EU and AU in three luxury resorts, 5 and 4*. I worked closely with the DOS and together we opened the Spanish and Portuguese speaking markets to the hotels, raising the occupancy of these nationalities from 5 to 15% on the first year.
Prior to the Maldives I was the Market Manager for Madrid when Agoda.com landed in Spain, being part of the team that achieved a huge growth of figures in terms of performance and number of properties featured. These results led to my promotion as Assistant Market Manager for Barcelona handling an inventory of more than 800 properties. Agoda.com is the most important Asian OTA, owned by Priceline and sister co. of Booking.com.
At the moment, I am studying the Master in hotel management through CESAE, Business& tourism school as I want to be able to learn from all the departments that make up a hotel.
I have lived in the United Kingdom, Budapest, and Maldives Islands so I am very happy in multicultural environments.
My mother tongue is both Spanish and Portuguese and I have an advanced level in English as well.
I am looking to continue my professional development in the Business Development department of a hotel.
I have availability of immediate incorporation and willingness to move.
With my best regards and wishing you a happy day,
Cristina Blanco Sande.
