HR Group grows with strong executives: New director of sales and competent general manager
Reinforcement in the Head Office: Andy Owdin becomes Director of Sales at the HR Group
The HR Group strengthens its commercial team, which consists of the Sales, Revenue and Marketing departments. With the experienced strategist Andy Owdin, the new position of Director of Sales will be filled. He now heads the growing department of the hotel operator company. The goal is to expand the group's above-average performance by optimizing its sales activities. Andy Owdin began his career in 2006 as Coordinator Manager at the platform Booking.com and later moved to MICE AG as Sales Manager for Media and Trade Fairs. He has been working in the hotel industry since 2010 - initially as Senior Sales Manager Corporate at the GCH Hotel Group in Berlin. This was followed by internal changes to the positions of Key Account Manager and Area Director Sales and Marketing North, followed by a switch to MOXY Berlin Humboldthain Park and AC Berlin Humboldthain Park by Marriott as Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue. In his last station, Owdin worked for the second largest hotel in Germany, the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz, as Director of Sales & Marketing.
In addition to the position in the head office, the HR Group is relying on new reinforcement in two of its hotels - the Mercure Hotel Eschborn Helfmann Park and the Arcadia Hotel Heidelberg.
