Corinthia Hotel London announced the appointment of Raffaella Manetti as Head of Sales, West Coast USA, effective immediately.
Ms. Manetti, based in Los Angeles, will expand the US sales presence of Corinthia Hotel London, working alongside Ty Horn, Head of Sales, East Coast USA. Since joining the company earlier this year, Mr. Horn, also well-respected with 10 years’ experience within the hotel industry along the East Coast, has made strong progress in driving business from this key market towards Corinthia London.
Manetti will also provide sales support to Antony Rush, who as Head of Entertainment Sales based at Corinthia Hotel London, has a major focus on the LA film and entertainment industry.
Matthew Dixon, General Manager, Corinthia Hotel London, in making the announcement noted: “We are very pleased to have someone of Ms. Manetti’s stature and experience in the West Coast USA’s luxury hospitality market join the Corinthia Hotel London team. This will no doubt strengthen the hotel’s already highly-successful inroads made in the Los Angeles film and entertainment industry, as well as support a more aggressive campaign to fuel the hotel’s growth in markets across the entire West Coast region including Canada.”
Manetti, highly respected by the travel trade on the West Coast, brings to her new position extensive experience in luxury hospitality sales, having previously worked for Le Royal Monceau Raffles as Director of Sales, North America, and prior to that, Destination Hotels&Resorts, among other hospitality brands.
Although Los Angeles will be Manetti’s key geographic focus, her sales efforts will also include San Diego, Santa Barbara, Silicon Valley, Texas, Dallas, Colorado, Portland, Washington State, Western Canada, and Mexico.
