June 19, 2013 Appointments No Comments Email Email

Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort and Spa has appointed Raelene Ohlson to the role of business development manager – MICE.

Raelene_Ohlson_OutriggerMs Ohlson’s breadth of experience stems from over 25 years working with national and international hotel brands and covering a range of sectors including sales and marketing, management, reservations, conferencing and events.

Some of her career highlights include a six-month secondment by Intercontinental Hotels Group to work within the athlete’s village at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in London; and managing Queensland’s only concert starring Michael Crawford in 2006, that drew over 15,000 attendees.

Grant James, regional general manager for Outrigger Hotels and Resorts, was pleased to welcome Ms Ohlson to the hotel group.

“Raelene’s extensive industry contacts and understanding of the MICE sector, has already generated positive results for Outrigger Little Hastings Street with longer-lead conferences contracted from our key source markets of Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne,” Mr James said.

“Outrigger Little Hastings Street contains some of the largest conferencing facilities on the Sunshine Coast and I am confident that Raelene will play a pivotal role in bolstering the 5-star resort’s presence in key MICE markets.”

Highly passionate and motivated, Ms Ohlson’s contribution to the hospitality industry was officially recognised in 2011 by the Accommodation Association of Australia, when she was awarded National Department Manager of the Year.
