Saigon's Caravelle appoints new sales and marketing head20 June 2012
Saigon’s landmark Caravelle Hotel has appointed Samuel G. Gacos as its new director of sales and marketing.
Gacos joins the Caravelle as the iconic downtown Saigon hotel readies for a top-to-toe renovation that will rank as the hotel’s most thorough makeover since a 1998 refurbishment and addition of a complementary hotel tower.
With a career spanning more than 18 years in sales and marketing, Gacos worked in numerous cluster and corporate management roles, including the Manila Hotel, Shangri-La Hotel and Resorts, Hilton, GHM luxury properties in Bali, and Sutera Harbour Resort Group in Malaysia.
Most recently, he worked as group director of sales & marketing in Malaysia, overseeing two hotels, five resorts, a 27-hole golf course and marina.
A Philippine national, Gacos holds a bachelor’s degree in hotel and restaurant administration from the University of Philippines.
