August 9, 2016 (ORANGE COUNTY, CALIF.) – Montage Hotels & Resorts has announced the appointment of Cristina Romero-Peri as director of sales & marketing at Montage Los Cabos scheduled to open in 2018. A talented hospitality professional with extensive experience in Latin America and Mexico, Romero-Peri will oversee all sales and marketing efforts for the luxury hotel collection's first international address, including all group and leisure sales activities.
Romero-Peri brings over 18 years of sales and marketing experience in hospitality to Montage Hotels & Resorts, and over 15 of those years in the Los Cabos market. Most recently, Romero-Peri was executive director of sales & marketing at One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, responsible for managing the resort's sales, reservations and revenue teams, as well as for marketing and strategic partnerships.
