Regent Hotels & Resorts has opened sales offices in London and New York to help boost travel agency distribution. As a result, Erika Limmer, Karin Cohen and Jo Clark have been appointed as director of sales. Clark, a previous The Leading Hotels of the World account manager, will front the London office. “Erika, Karin and Jo possess an extensive knowledge of the luxury market segment in North America and Europe. All three have longstanding, deep relationships with the luxury travel agent community, top agency consortia and key corporate travel managers and meeting planners,” said Christine Hodder, senior vice president of Regent Hotels & Resorts. “These established relationships along with their proven track records in hospitality sales will be tremendous assets for us as we re-establish Regent as the leading luxury global hotel brand.” Regent is also looking to open further sales offices in Tokyo, Shanghai and Beijing next year.
