Dusit International has appointed Mr. Simon Burgess as Global Director of Sales, a new position for the company. Mr Burgess will be responsible for overseeing all aspects pertaining to the sales strategies and activities of Dusit International’s hotels and resorts worldwide.

As Dusit International brings new properties on line, both in Thailand and overseas, a new global sales structure will be implemented, with a renewed emphasis on key account management, to meet the demands of the company’s expansion. The restructure follows the launch of a similar global sales initiative for the Dusit Princess Hotels & Resorts brand which is already in place.

Mr. Octavio Gamarra, Senior Vice President, Dusit International, said “In line with the new marketing strategies for Dusit International, one of our key priorities is to be even more responsive to the needs of our client base and provide a one-stop sales shop for our growing collection of hotels and resorts. Simon’s appointment to the newly introduced role of Global Director of Sales for the company will provide the leadership and management of the sales activities in a more innovative and dynamic environment. We are delighted to have Simon in this role after 3 years in the operations field of one of our leading resorts, Dusit Thani Hua Hin, his experience on property combined with his international tourism marketing background will prove to be invaluable as we set Dusit International more aggressive targets for 2009.”

'dusitD2 baraquda pattaya’ will open later this year and ‘dusitD2 samui’ will open in mid 2009, presenting new opportunities for our progressive ‘dusitD2’ design brand.
