Hannah Bancarz, marketing executive at Splendid Hospitality Group, was named UK&I ‘Marketing Person of the Year’ at the InterContinental Hotels Group Commercial Kick Off on 14 February 2019.
The award celebrates outstanding and passionate marketing individuals in IHG who effectively communicate the brand across all divisions.
Hannah, who joined Splendid Hospitality in March 2018, received the prestigious title after successfully executing a wide range of creative and results-generating ideas, and working with the group’s third-party agencies and the company’s own senior leaders to drive the hotels’ marketing messages.
Hannah said: “I’m delighted to have won the IHG UK&I Marketing Person of the Year! As I’m normally the one writing award applications, it came as a huge surprise to learn I’d won an award that I had no idea my colleague had nominated me for. I’d like to thank Keith Butler and all the Splendid family for their support and kind words.”
Keith Butler, sales business partner at Splendid Hospitality Group, said: “Hannah is a massive support to our team and has played an instrumental role in creating opportunities for several of our properties in both the national and international markets. Her attention to detail, diligence and hard work makes her a real asset to the Splendid Family.”
