Courtyard by Marriott Thailand has appointed Christian Lueke to the position of Cluster Director of Marketing.
Mr Lueke said he was delighted to be joining the team behind the four Courtyard by Marriott resorts in Phuket and Hua Hin as he looks to build on the reputation they have established over the past two years for providing memorable holiday experiences in great beach locations.
“We have taken a very different approach to Courtyard resorts in Thailand meaning our properties cater perfectly to guests looking for a great, value-for-money resort in beautiful beachside locations such as Phuket and Hua Hin,” Mr Lueke said.
“Courtyard by Marriott in Thailand is a brand gaining momentum and I am happy to be on board to participate in the development we have planned, as well as continue to cater to the needs of both our leisure and business travellers from key local and international markets.”
Mr Lueke brings with him substantial experience in marketing Thailand resorts to Europe, Asia and the Pacific and will be responsible for increasing the profile of the Courtyard by Marriott resorts in Phuket and Hua Hin and lead all sales efforts.
Furthermore, he will oversee all the advertising and public relations campaigns related to Courtyard by Marriott resorts in Thailand, as well as develop the group’s marketing plans and work closely with all departments to ensure maximum profitability.
His employment history stands him in good stead for this role; Mr Lueke joins Courtyard by Marriott from the Thai-owned Onyx Hospitality Group, where for five years he worked as Group Director of Sales and Marketing, responsible for all sales and marketing functions in both Thailand and overseas.
Prior to this role Mr Lueke held the position of Director of Sales and Marketing for HMS International Hotel.
Mr Lueke also has an excellent background in negotiating with tour operators as well as working closely with leading corporate clients across Europe.
