Dubai, August 2, 2009
Hilton Hotels has appointed Victor Louis as the company’s new regional director of sales for Arabian Peninsula and Indian Ocean. He moves from Hilton Fujairah Resort where he was general manager.
“With his widespread knowledge of the hospitality industry, understanding of the local market, and expertise in sales, business development and operations, Victor will be responsible for driving our sales strategy for all Hilton Family hotels across the region,” said James Farrow, senior vice president, Sales, Hilton Hotels, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Louis, who is fluent in Arabic, joined Hilton in 1996 as an assistant sales manager in Egypt. Since then he has greatly extended his experience to include area director of sales and marketing for Hilton’s Abu Dhabi and Al Ain hotels, as well as director of business development for Jeddah Hilton.
