Promotion for Marriott’s Skec

The Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort has announced the promotion of Laura Skec to director of sales and marketing.

No stranger to the 295-room hotel located on Seven Mile Beach, Ms Skec has spent three and a half years as the senior sales manager and as the acting director of event management.

“I am very excited about my new position, which continues to promote our Resort worldwide and locally here in Cayman, but it also expands my focus to include marketing functions in addition to group and leisure sales,” Ms Skec said.

“I am eager to continue to help this dynamic hotel evolve as it approaches its 5-year anniversary since the Marriott Company took over.”

Ms Skec, who has spent most of her career in South and Central America, joined the Marriott Company at the Buenos Aires Plaza in 2001 in their culinary department. Through her dedicated efforts and her management skills, she worked her way up to become the executive chef for the property in 2003.

She ventured on numerous task force assignments throughout different properties in the Latin American region to assist in food and beverage initiatives until she discovered her potential in the sales and marketing department.

“I find that my past experience in the different areas of the hospitality industry has provided me with a solid background supporting my career within sales and marketing, plus I believe I have found what I am truly passionate about, that is the discipline itself and working everyday with my fabulous team and to promote the destination.

“I am very much enjoying the path that I have chosen, and I am thankful for every opportunity,” she said.
