Hilton Waikoloa Adds Members to Leadership Team

I had the opportunity to stay at the Hilton Waikoloa Village last month. I am still constantly scanning for things that go on at the hotel. I just noticed that they have added some new employees to their leadership team.

….effective June 15. Frank Manchen joins the team as director of sales and marketing; Jacques Monteil will serve as director of catering and events, and Russ Kembel transitions to director of national accounts in Seattle, Wash.

Frank Manchen will oversee and lead the development and execution of strategic sales and marketing plans and initiatives as the new director of sales and marketing. Manchen comes from La Quinta Resort and PGA West, part of Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria Collection, located in the Palm Springs area of California where he served as director of sales. Manchen has been with Hilton for 12 years and has a comprehensive expertise and depth in the sales and marketing disciplines. Originally from South Africa and having completed international studies in Africa, Germany and Switzerland, Manchen’s well-rounded experience in international markets, food and beverage and team building will help him effectively work with a broad range of sales clients at the resort.

Jacques Monteil has been named director of catering and events at Hilton Waikoloa Village, where he will lead the event management and catering teams in creating world-class events and social functions. Monteil also hails from La Quinta Resort and PGA West, part of Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria Collection, where he most recently held the position of assistant director of events. His diverse background includes key senior leadership positions in catering, conference services and event management at Embassy Suites and Gaylord Hotels in Dallas, Texas.

Russ Kembel has transitioned to a new position on the sales team as the director of national accounts, and will be based in Seattle, Wash. In his new role, Kembel will be Hilton Waikoloa Village’s primary sales executive covering key accounts in both the national insurance and incentive meetings & travel markets.
