InterContinental Promotes Four

The InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa has made several promotions within its sales and marketing team as part of InterContinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) ‘room to grow’ philosophy.

Vara Natuilagilagi has recently been appointed to the role of business development manager -meetings, incentives, conference and events (MICE).

She will be responsible for the daily management of the MICE and weddings sales team and to generate new business for the resort.

She has been with the resort since 2011 and has held roles in marketing and recently business development manager (BDM) – leisure.

“I am thrilled to take on this new challenge,” Ms Natuilagilagi said.

Recent developments in the marketing side has seen Florence Law, who joined the team in December 2013 as sales and marketing co-ordinator, supporting the resort’s marketing efforts both within the organisation and externally over the past few months.

Ms Law will now commence the role of marketing and e-commerce co-ordinator where she will specialise in marketing strategies to improve the resorts digital marketing efforts in addition to her current responsibilities.

“I look forward to this new challenge and working closely with director of leisure sales and marketing, Hudson Mitchell, to generate awareness and business online – a key priority for InterContinental Fiji,” says Ms Law.

The InterContinental Fiji weddings team also recently welcomed Vaiete Teannaki as conference and weddings co-ordinator; following the appointment of Jane Madden-Lesavua to business development executive (BDE) – weddings.

Ms Teannaki rejoined the team after her stint in 2014 as an intern from the School of Tourism and Hospitality at the University of the South Pacific (USP).

“2014 was an enlightening year where I experienced cross-training across the resort,” says Ms Teannaki.

Madden-Lesavua has been with the resort since 2009 starting as a guest service agent and then a Club InterContinental butler. She joined the weddings team in 2012 and has run many successful weddings since.

“It’s rewarding to see my efforts recognised and to move into a new role,” said Ms Madden-Lesavua.
With a team committed to excellence, the weddings team aims to take the resort’s wedding market for the global brand to greater heights and continuing to distinguish themselves as the best weddings team in not only Fiji, but the international scene as well.

“We are very fortunate to have a wealth of local talent here in our sales and marketing team,” area director of sales and marketing (Fiji/Vanuatu), Kamal Haer, said.

“We have ambitious plans in 2015 and beyond and we can only be successful if we have a team as passionate and dedicated as the one at InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa.

It gives me a lot of personal satisfaction when we are able to promote people from within our organisation to these important roles – it demonstrates the depth of talent that we have.”
