Frederic De Marcy Chelin has been appointed to the newly created role of area director of sales and marketing - Indian Ocean.
Chelin will continue as director of sales and marketing for the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort, a position he has held for four years, adding Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort to his area of responsibility.
Chelin will report to Franck Seguin, Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort general manager; John Allanson, Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort general manager; and Andrew Gee, Outrigger vice president of sales and marketing, Asia Pacific, based in Sydney.
The new dual role is consistent with Outrigger Resorts' strategic sales and marketing structure in Asia Pacific: Rory Campbell as area director of sales and marketing for Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort and Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort in Thailand; and Ben Johnson as area director of sales and marketing for Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort and Castaway Island, Fiji.
Before joining Outrigger in August 2013, Chelin, a native of Mauritius, worked for Starwood Hotels and Resorts as director of corporate and group sales, responsible for three properties in Mauritius: Le Meridien Ile Maurice, The Westin Turtle Bay, Mauritius, and The St. Regis Mauritius Resort. Previously, Chelin was with two destination management companies on the island. Chelin graduated with a degree in tourism management from IFC Montpellier in France.
