Luxury hotel industry stalwart Denise Cardona has been announced as the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa’s new Director of Sales, a role she took on in 2018.
Ms Cardona brings extensive experience to the position and decades of involvement, having worked in the five-star hospitality sector for her entire career. She first joined the hospitality industry in the front office department, before switching to leisure sales seven years ago, and then taking on the responsibility of online and MICE sales at the Radisson BLU St Julian’s. She took over the management of corporate sales for the same hotel early in 2018, before joining the team at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa later in the year, in the new role of Director of Sales.
Asked about her thoughts on the move, Ms Cardona said: “It was the right time to take on a new challenge and a good time to transfer into this position. I have been able to create the role of Director of Sales from scratch as opposed to stepping into someone else’s shoes, so that has also been an interesting aspect of the job and an opportunity that I have relished.”
Ms Cardona highlights how the Corinthia Palace is currently going through some exciting transitions that will maintain the charm of this historic property while also propelling it to new levels of service and luxury. “This hotel is definitely on the map and there are huge opportunities for us to make the most of, not least with the development of the Mriehel corporate playground nearby,” she adds.
Speaking about Ms Cardona’s appointment, Corinthia Palace General Manager Adrian Attard said: “We are thrilled to welcome Ms Cardona to the role, and have no doubt that her unique expertise and understanding of the sector will prove to be great assets to our team here. We wish her every success.”
