About me

As a seasoned international hotelier, I define myself as a professional perfectionist, service focused and a positive person in any situation. Bespoke services and quality products are paramount to me. In the past 25 years, I have gained international, multi-cultural experience and master several languages. I am sales driven and result oriented. Experienced in overall hotel operations but specialized in (pre) openings and turn-arounds with a clear focus on innovation, marketing, PR and development of new products & services. Experienced in both rooms division and food and beverage services, and keen interest in training & development in both European and Asian environments. My communication skills and multicultural awareness facilitate me in managing and creating a diverse team of individuals. Besides the traditional marketing and sales responsibilities, I am well adapted to all social media with a clear understanding of SEO, SEM and SMM. I am pragmatic, hardworking and always seeking for improvement. Good motivator and team player. I have extensive experience with re-branding, re-opening, pre-opening and refurbishments of properties both in Europe and Asia.
