Anne Murungi has been appointed as Director of Sales & Marketing at Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City Accra. She brings with her over 16 years’ experience, having worked in various positions in the hospitality industry. Anne is not new to the brand, as she has in the past worked with the brand as Di-rector of Sales & Marketing at Kempinski Hotels in Kenya, and also had an area sales manager role with the same brand.

Until her appointment, Anne was the MD and Lead Consultant of Hospitality (K) Consult, a firm that provides business, industry and market intelligence to investors intending to invest in the hotel busi-ness in East Africa, as well as advising existing hotels in evaluating their performance and creating sys-tems that increase efficiency and maximise profits.

Anne serves as the chairperson of the marketing committee of Kenya Tourism Federation, the umbrella body of all tourism and travel associations in Kenya. She was the champion of the organisation of the 79th SKÅL International World Congress 2018. In 2016, Anne was appointed to the Taskforce to es-tablish Kenya’s National Convention Bureau, the Cabinet Secretary of Tourism and Wildlife in Kenya, and presented a report that saw the launch of the Bureau in 2019. In 2017, she was voted AKWAABA Top 100 Women in Tourism and Travel in Africa.
Manish Nambiar, the general manager, in his announcement of the new appointment, stated that ‘Anne is an inspirational business leader who has a deep understanding of market trends and strongly be-lieves in empowering and developing her teams to exceed business performance. We are excited to have her back and with Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City Accra.’

In her acceptance speech, Anne commented, ‘Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City Accra is the leading hotel in the chain in the Middle East and Africa in business performance. It is a great challenge to be given this hotel because my biggest task will be to steadily grow the hotel’s revenue performance and maintain the brand’s position in the region, as the market leader. I come back to a brand that I have a lot of confidence in, a brand that has continually set a benchmark on the true definition of luxury.’
