TORONTO — A sales and marketing veteran of the travel industry has joined the ranks at Club Med as its new MICE Business Development Manager for Ontario and Western Canada.
Maria Chung, who brings with her over 25 years of industry experience, will be responsible for developing Club Med’s MICE market in both regions.
Prior to her new role, Chung was involved in several notable hotel openings, including the opening of InterContinental Toronto Yorkville where she spent 10 years, and also helped introduce the Thompson brand to Canada.
“I am excited to join the Club Med family, the pioneer of the all-inclusive concept, offering upscale and friendly resorts worldwide,” said Chung. “Club Med is a multicultural company with strong values and commitments. I am proud to be a part of this renowned organization and be one of the ambassadors.”
Mélanie St-Germain, Meetings & Events by Club Med Manager, said that Chung’s previous experience will bring much value to the company.
“Maria’s sales and marketing skills in the tourism industry will be a great asset to expand our business in Ontario and Western Canada, which is a strong lever of growth for our brand, especially with the upcoming Club Med Québec Charlevoix resort opening in Canada in December 2020,” she said. “We’re happy to have Maria join our Meetings & Events team and are looking forward to the contributions she will bring to the industry.”
