The Goring has appointed a new director of sales and marketing as the luxury London hotel looks to drive bookings following its reopening.
Paula McColgan has joined from her previous role of director of sales & marketing at The Carlton Tower Jumeriah and Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel, London, ahead of their June 2021 relaunch.
Prior to this, McColgan headed up the sales & marketing team at Kimpton Fitzroy London, overseeing the launch in April 2018.
From 2004-2016 she was director of sales & marketing at The Lanesborough, repositioning and relaunching the hotel in 2015 under the hotel’s new management company, Oetker Collection.
Other hotel groups McColgan has worked for during her 25-year career include: Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, St Regis Hotels & Resorts and Forte Hotels & Resorts.
The Goring was opened in 1910 by Otto Goring and is now the only five-star luxury hotel in London that is owned and run by the family that built it.
