Ms Amy Horgan has been appointed as Area Sales & Marketing Manager of the two Cork four-star Talbot Collection hotels, the Oriel House Hotel & Leisure Club and Midleton Park Hotel. In her new role Ms. Horgan is responsible for the business development, digital and social media marketing and sales strategies for both hotels.
Ms Horgan joined the team at the Midleton Park Hotel as Sales & Marketing Executive in 2012 and was quickly promoted to Sales & Marketing Manager in 2013. As a result of her proven success heading up the Sales & Marketing department at the Midleton Park Hotel the Talbot Collection made the decision to appoint Amy as the area manager for the two Cork hotels in their collection.
Since Ms Horgan’s appointment in May she has been able to amalgamate the sales and marketing department in both hotels and leverage one property off the other. By grouping both hotels and utilising the strengths of each of the individual venues, in this short six-month period there has been a huge increase in referral business.
Ms Horgan has also noted a growth in revenue which can be tracked directly back to her digital campaigns for each hotel. Amy holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Cork Institute of Technology, and a Masters in Marketing from the National University of Ireland Galway. In August, Ms Horgan also completed a Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing with the Digital Marketing Institute.
