David Taylor Appointed Director of Sales and Marketing
The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park

NEW YORK, NY (August 12, 2009) -- David Taylor has been named Director of Sales and Marketing for The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park.  Taylor brings a strong background in international sales leadership and marketing.  Previously, Taylor held the position of Executive Director of Marketing at The New York Palace Hotel (2008) and Director of Sales and Marketing at The St. Regis, New York (2003-2008).  A true star in the New York hospitality industry, Taylor was Chairman of NYC & Company’s Signature Collection of hotels (2005-2008).

The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park is a Mobil Five Star and AAA Five Diamond hotel.  The stand-out luxury property is the second-home to the world’s most famous celebrities, diplomats and business leaders.  This hotel is the company’s flagship property, and was recently named to Travel + Leisure magazine’s list of the World’s Best Hotels 2009.

Taylor also held numerous positions at Swissôtel/Raffles International including Director of Sales and Marketing, Boston (1993-1996), Vice President Sales, North America (1996-1997), Vice President of Sales and Marketing Middle East, Mediterranean (2000-2002) and in the United Kingdom (2002-2003).

“I think the most significant impact has been working in three major cities: Istanbul, London and New York, which must be some of the toughest, most competitive markets in the world,” said Taylor. “This gave me great exposure to different markets, different cultures and an opportunity to develop as a Sales Leader and a Global Marketer.”

Taylor is quite the adventurer; favorite pastimes include skiing, hang gliding, and even competitive go-carting. On weekends he tries to spend time at his 1850’s Sea Captain’s house on Cape Cod.
