Outrigger Enterprises Group has appointed Frederic De Marcy Chelin to the newly created role of Area Director of Sales and Marketing for Indian Ocean.
While continuing as Director of Sales and Marketing for the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort, a position he has held for four years, Chelin will add Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort to his area of responsibility. He will report to Franck Seguin, General Manager at Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort, John Allanson, General Manager at Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort, and Andrew Gee, Outrigger Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Asia Pacific.
