Marco Polo Hotels has appointed Ms. Juni Rahardja as Regional Director of Sales, Singapore, succeeding Mr. Roy Yan who recently retired after 24 years with the Group.
Juni has over 30 years of experience in Singapore’s hospitality industry and has held senior positions with reputable international hotels such as Conrad Centennial Singapore and Grand Hyatt Singapore; her most recent position was Director – Regional Sales Office Singapore for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts.
As a specialist in the Southeast Asia market, Juni will lead the Group’s sales activities in this region and drive incremental business to the 14 Marco Polo and Niccolo hotels throughout Hong Kong, China and the Philippines.
“We are delighted to have Juni lead our sales activities in Singapore; a city which has always been a priority market for our hotels across the key market segments of corporate, MICE and leisure,” said Dr. Jennifer Cronin, President of Marco Polo Hotels. “Our sales network has never been more important in today’s digitally connected environment - as we recognise the importance of building and retaining our client’s and partner’s trust by delivering first class service with professional sales leadership. We know Juni will build on the past relationships of our retiring head, Roy Yan, who provided over two decades of outstanding service to the Marco Polo family, as well as introduce new clients to the Marco Polo experience.”
