New Director of Sales & Marketing for IHG in Oman

Travel News Asia Wednesday, 27 June 2007

InterContinental Hotels Group has promoted Janet Turner to the position of Director of Sales and Marketing, Crowne Plaza Muscat in Oman.

Turner's appointment is part of an ongoing growth plan in the country which has recently seen the announcement of a new Crowne Plaza hotel in the newly-developed industrial area of Sohar. Turner's new role also follows a series of appointments in Oman, including the head of IHG's financial operations in the country as well as two GMs for the group's existing Crowne Plaza properties.

An accomplished sales professional, Turner has more than 20 years experience in the hospitality industry. Before being based at the Crowne Plaza Muscat, Turner was Sales Manager, Conference and Banqueting at the InterContinental Citystars Cairo, where she formed part of the official opening team for the property in 2005.

"Oman is becoming highly regarded as a key destination on the world travel map," said Turner. "While new developments such as the Crowne Plaza Sohar are representative of the significant investment being made, Oman retains its appeal as a relaxing and historic destination and I am thrilled to be part of IHG's commitment to this thriving country."

The strengthening of IHG's expertise and infrastructure in Oman is part of the group's Middle East growth plan that will see over 7,000 hotel rooms come online across the Middle East and Africa within the next 18 months.

This ties into the group's global strategy to target net, organic growth of 50,000 - 60,000 rooms by the end of 2008.
