Staff Introductions - June 2012 / Gary Mehmet (Account Manager Agents) by Bard Vos

Hi there.

 

I have just joined the Apartment Service team as an Account Manager-Agents.

 

I am excited to be part of the team and really looking forward to the challenge of further developing the relationships in place with our Agency partners. My background is very much hotel based. My career started in 2001, after graduating from the University of Brighton with a BA Hons-International Hospitality Management. My first position back then, was as a graduate trainee manager for 4* Hilton Bracknell, Berkshire. I gained some very valuable operations experience at this hotel and met some wonderful people, many are still close friends of mine today. During this period, I worked in various departments including Reservations, Front desk, Meetings and Events, Food and Beverage and Guest Relations, all of which helped me to gain an insight into how complex a hotel operation can be.

 

After two years, following the recommendations of my General Manager, John Hunt, I made a decision to move away from operations and into the world of sales.

 

Over the past 9 years I have worked hard to gain experience in sales. I have been fortunate to work for some strong brands including Best Western Hotels, Jurys Inn and Millennium and Copthorne Hotels.

 

I have worked my way from Sales researcher to Sales executive to Corporate Sales Manager and Regional Sales Manager and I have experience working with Leisure and Corporate markets.

 

My most recent position has been as an Account Director for Millennium Gloucester and Baileys, South Kensington with a joint turnover of £30M.

 

On a personal note, I am married to Leanne Mehmet (Senior Corporate Sales Manager for Qatar Airlines) and we have two children together; Samuel Gary Mehmet 5 years old and Ava Leanne Mehmet (5 months).

 

 

Kind regards
