(17 Sep 2021) The Peninsula London has appointed Susan Wheatley as Director of Sales & Marketing.
With almost 30 years of international luxury hospitality industry experience – most of it in Dubai, Susan has forged her career in the commercial divisions of some of the world’s best hotels, including Burj Al Arab, Raffles Dubai and Grosvenor House, London.
Susan worked for Jumeirah for 10 years before joining Raffles Hotels and ultimately FRHI Hotels & Resorts, which was acquired by Accor in 2016 and comprised of the well known brands: Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel.
Susan has joined the pre-opening team of The Peninsula London where she will oversee the strategy and direction of the entire sales and marketing division – including brand marketing, e-commerce, communications, catering and events, revenue management and distribution.
Ms Sonja Vodusek, Managing Director of The Peninsula London, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Susan back to the UK after her time in Dubai and to have her join the pre-opening team of The Peninsula London. Her deep understanding of luxury hospitality and her commercial insights will be key to the success of our newest hotel in Belgravia. Susan will be instrumental in leading the team to deliver The Peninsula’s legendary experience to London when it opens its doors in late 2022.”
Susan holds a BSc Hons in Hotel Management from the University of Surrey in England.
