HUE, Vietnam — La Residence Hotel & Spa, one of Vietnam’s most highly acclaimed hospitality properties, has hired two new managers to head up operations and manage sales.
Adrien Marie has joined the hotel as operations manager, and Huynh Xuan Hanh comes aboard as director of sales. Each reports directly to General Manager Phan Trong Minh. Marie will be based on site in Hue, and Hanh will work out of Ho Chi Minh City.
The additions come at an auspicious time for the Sofitel MGallery property, which in November won placement on a list of Southern Asia’s top hotels in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards.
Marie relocates to Hue from Beijing where he worked in sales and business development at the Sofitel Wanda. Prior to those appointments, he worked at hotels in his native France and in the United States. He was educated in Paris, Chicago and Berkeley.
Hanh has worked at a number of leading hospitality concerns across Vietnam, including Vinpearl, Sofitel Saigon Plaza and Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon. She also worked a stint as a relationship manager at HSBC Bank. Hanh studied physics and accounting in college.
