Ann Palmer and PA Francin (230 x 229)I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Ann Palmer as Regional Director of Sales for the US Market, based in New York.

Passionate about the hospitality and travel industry, Ann integrated the Flatotel in Midtown Manhattan in 2007 and then joined The Mark Hotel in 2008 as their Travel Industry Sales Manager for North America. In a natural progression, her next position was as Global Travel Industry Sales Manager with Global Hotel Alliance, Omni and Kempinski, handling their consortia relationships. Her last position before joining us at Le Royal Monceau Raffles – Paris was as Regional Director of Sales for North American Partnerships with Acqualina Resort & Spa.

I am also very happy to announce the appointment of Pierre-Alexandre Francin as Hotel Manager.

A seasoned hotelier, Pierre-Alexandre has garnered significant Sales & Operations experience working at world-class luxury hotels and organisations such as Le Meurice, La Villa Gallici and Le Couvent des Minimes Hotel & Spa in Provence, Baglioni Hotels, Relais & Châteaux and more recently La Réserve Paris as Managing Director.

In his new role at the Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris, Pierre-Alexandre will supervise all operational departments, making sure the level of service provided constantly exceeds guests expectations.

We all welcome Ann and Pierre-Alexandre to our family. They are both extremely talented and creative, and bring a wealth of hospitality experience to their roles. Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris has gone from strength to strength this year, garnering prominent accolades such as the official “Palace” rating and a Michelin star for each of its two restaurants, and we look forward to working with them to continue to grow internationally.
