Cairns Harbourside Hotel appoints new DSM

Cairns Harbourside Hotel has appointed Kristy Williams as director of sales & marketing.

The newly rebranded Cairns Harbourside Hotel has appointed Kristy Williams as director of sales & marketing.

Williams was previously with Cairns Hilton, Doubletree Cairns, Pullman International Cairns and Novotel Cairns Oasis.

Before moving to Cairns, Williams was with Hilton Hotels, holding senior sales positions in Sydney, Dubai and across the UK.

“Kristy brings a wealth of experience to the role, and she is really excited about establishing an independent hotel in the marketplace,” said Glen Macdonald, the hotel’s general manager.

“We have had great feedback since rebranding the hotel. With our commitment to delivering a hotel with a distinctive tropical Cairns character we believe we can tap into a growing trend for visitors seeking accommodation that captures the destination’s DNA.

“With the new brand image and the plans for upgrading the hotel, we look forward to delivering a very authentic Tropical Queensland experience through interior design, the food we offer at our restaurant, and warm and relaxed service.”
