W Hotel   Working in PARTNERSHIP with clients, candidates and colleagues is a core value of the PSD Group and therefore supporting this particular award is very much aligned with how we run our business and serve our clients and candidates. Every assignment that we undertake is bespoke and structured around a specific project. By working in partnerships with other sector specialist experts at PSD, Will Davies and Mark Hulton from our Marketing and Hotel Sales team are able to introduce outstanding individuals to clients from a wide range of backgrounds. 

During the last year Will and Mark have worked on a number of exciting marketing roles for leading hotel clients. Two examples are highlighted below:

Marketing Director - £70,000 - London

Exciting new limited service hotel group

The team worked with an upscale hotel group that had a strong fitness offering. The company needed to revamp how they marketed these fitness services in order to drive high acquisition of new members into all of the hotels across the UK.  The group needed a candidate who would offer the most effective impact on their marketing strategy and activity. Keen to add an individual with a high level of marketing expertise, Will and Mark sourced senior marketing talent from a number of leisure and gym groups. A year in to the role, the candidate has successfully repositioned the brand, which is now considered a key player in the health and fitness market alongside its hotel offering.  

Head of Marketing - £60,000 - London 

Group of Luxury hotels and venues

A highly regarded luxury hotel group needed to improve their strategic marketing approach and thus improve their commercial return on investment. Will sourced a senior marketing candidate with a wealth of strategic commercial marketing experience from a global brand. New in the role this person has already made a significant impact on the commercial marketing strategy and the company's bottom line through their innovative approach and results-focused marketing strategy.
