Ashdown Park Hotel in Sussex has appointed a new marketing and PR coordinator to help drive up awareness of the luxury mansion house hotel.
Sarah Clark joins from her role at the Felbridge Hotel and Spa near East Grinstead, which was her first introduction to the hospitality industry when she joined in 2009.
At Felbridge she gained experience in a number of departments including sales, events and marketing.
Clark also recently completed a degree in fashion, media and promotion at Brighton University alongside, and enjoyed a stint at John Lewis as an intern in 2015.
Clark said: “My degree and my experience in fashion, including my time at John Lewis, has taught me how to spot upcoming trends in advance, which will give us a big advantage in marketing Ashdown Park and positioning it as one of the leading luxury hotels in the South East.”
As well as co-ordinating the marketing and PR for Ashdown Park, Clark will be supporting the marketing team for the Elite Hotel Group, which owns and operates Ashdown Park as well as three other luxury hotels; The Grand Hotel in Eastbourne, Tylney Hall Hotel in Hampshire and Luton Hoo Hotel in Bedfordshire.
General manager of Ashdown Park Hotel Ben Booker added: “We’re delighted to welcome Sarah to the team at Ashdown Park. She has already injected huge enthusiasm and a fresh approach to the marketing department and the hotel will benefit greatly from her experience and expertise.”
