/PRNewswire/ --
Macdonald Hotels has announced several personnel changes, including the
arrival of several new employees to the company and the departure of some
existing staff members.
Firstly, Fiona Raymen has made the decision to take on a much larger role in
Edinburgh
heading up a call centre operation for Johnstone Press. Fiona
brought structure and measurement to CRO and Macdonald Hotels has wished
her every success in her new role. Joan Adams, who has a background working
for Thomas Cook, started on 11 June to continue the good work that Fiona
started.
On 15 June, Pamela Robertson left the group to venture to new pastures,
marketing the hire of formal wear. Pamela was a great asset to the marketing
team over the last three years. Macdonald Hotels has thanked her for her
contribution, wishing her all the very best in her new role.
To replace Pamela, the hotel group announced the appointment of Vanessa
Kennedy, who joined the team on 11 June after having spent the last year at
VisitScotland working as the Brand Partnership Manager. Previous to that,
Vanessa worked 11 years at AVC Creative marketing agency in Aberdeen.
Macdonald hotels also announced the replacement of Alison Conroy in the
position of Corporate Marketing Manager. Lindsay Crozier is set to start on
Monday 2 July, having spent the last 14 months working in a sales role for FLOW
hospitality, offering training to the hospitality industry. She previously held
marketing roles with House of Fraser and Montpellier's Group. Lindsay will take
ownership of the Club loyalty scheme particularly to drive greater efficiencies
and costs savings as well as supporting the company's corporate and
conference marketing plan.
It has also been agreed that Esther Conn will focus her substantial expertise
and energies in growing and developing Macdonald Hotels' key corporate and
conference accounts as well as travel trade. With Esther moving into this
revised role as Head of Agency Sales and Travel Trade, the company is
currently recruiting for Head of Sales to drive the overall sales strategy for the
business as well as to take a much more active role in managing and
developing the unit based and central sales teams. There has already been a
lot of interest in this new role and Macdonald Hotels hopes to make an
appointment in the coming weeks.
