Meet the Team
Our team is driven to educate and inspire both the trade, media and affluent travellers with the unique experiences offered by our hospitality and travel clients. Whilst each client is allocated an account leader, every relevant member of our team, as well as management, will promote the client in every possible opportunity, hence significantly widening their exposure and opportunities to drive business.
KPI and targets as well as metrics measurement are a natural aspect of our business and we work hand in hand with our clients to analyze the production reports and ADR and ensure all key potential buyers are given the right tools and incentive to produce; regular reviews of production against target is performed with the hotels, ensuring no business is left aside.
Having spent more than twenty four years in Asia, this captivating continent never ceases to amaze Christine. In 1999, having successfully led the expansion for a satellite office of an acclaimed Singapore organization in Bali, Indonesia, Christine was appointed the Director of Sales & Marketing at Chiva‐Som, Thailand, in 2001 ‐ 2005. This enriching environment is where Christine prompted the conception of an independent business venture that would fuse her former experience and expertise. She was keen on providing personal marketing strategies for truly extraordinary travel destinations. As a result, Heavens Portfolio was launched in July 2005 in Singapore and quickly grew to be the leader in Hotel and destination representation in Asia with 17 satellite offices where 42 team members are currently providing their expertise to a portfolio of 40 hotels amongst them are Cheval Blanc, Armani, Belmond, Oetker, Chiva-Som and many more iconic hotels.
