"Her leadership skills and extensive all-around sales and marketing experience will help us establish Outrigger Phuket Beach Resort as an iconic resort property in Thailand."

Ms Chan speaks English, Malaysian, Mandarin, Cantonese and Hokkien, as well as some Spanish and German.

Her core skills include inventory distribution, revenue management, eCRM, loyalty programmes, direct versus indirect online channel optimization, customer segmentation, feeder market maximization and SEO. She is adept at conceiving and implementing online marketing and social media strategies.

The Outrigger Phuket Beach Resort will be the second Outrigger property in Laguna Phuket, joining the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas, which it has managed since August 2009.

Ms Chan joined Outrigger, effective 15 November.
