Fiji Sun, May 15 – Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay’s new Director of Sales and Marketing, Cassie Towson said Fiji was the heart of the Pacific and offered the perfect backdrop for a relaxing or romantic getaway besides having something for everyone.
Ms Towson comes from Australia’s tourism capital, the Gold Coast and was previously director of sales and marketing for Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa and has been with Marriott International for seven years. During her time with Marriott, Ms Towson has also held roles within Revenue Management where she was the Market Cluster director of Revenue Strategy and over the years looked over multiple hotels within the Australian market. Ms Towson commenced with Marriott Momi on April 23, 2018.
She has received several awards such as President’s Circle and BMSC’s One Team Driving Results. Her and husband, Trent, who has Fijian roots, have two children, Bailey, 12, and Maddie, 10 and are all avid sports fans and enjoy spending time at the beach or on the water . Ms Towson stated:
I have an extensive background also in Operations and Food and Beverage. I have been in the tourism industry for about 20 years and have worked for different international brands from Accor’s Novotel and Mercure to Mantra Group at head office to now Marriott International where I have been for 7 years. I hope to enhance friendly Fijian hospitality and sell the destination to the world. Due to its location, Fiji is easy to get to with direct flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco along with the new Fiji Airways Japan flight. I was actually married in Fiji at Denarau and have been coming to Fiji regularly for the past 12 years. It has held a special place in my heart for many reasons, but the welcoming and friendly people if have met have always made me feel like I am family. My family arrives early July to allow me time to immerse myself in the beautiful Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay and the wonderful surrounding areas. I can’t wait to show them more around this part of Fiji.
