Originally from Paris, Chataigner joins the Hilton team from the South Pacific where she worked as director of sales and marketing for Sofitel.

In the role of director of business development, South Pacific, Chataigner will be responsible for leading the Hilton sales, marketing, revenue and event teams with a strategy of strengthening the position of Hilton as the first choice for clients and stakeholders, both on the domestic and international markets.

Commenting on the appointment, Roger Brantsma, general manager for Hilton Auckland and Hilton Lake Taupo said, “We are excited to have Marieke Chataigner join the Hilton team in this new role. Chataigner has a wealth of knowledge of the domestic and international accommodation market and a solid understanding of the hospitality industry.”

Chataigner noted “It is exciting to move to New Zealand and to be part of such a great brand and stunning hotels. From Hilton Auckland on the waterfront with sweeping harbour views and Hilton Lake Taupo with its 100 year old grandeur and panoramic views of the lake and mountains to Hilton Queenstown and Kawarau Hotel, managed by Hilton in one of New Zealand’s must-see destinations, I am looking forward to continuing to strengthen our portfolio’s position in the market.”

Hilton Hotels & Resorts currently manages four properties in New Zealand: Hilton Auckland, Hilton Lake Taupo, Hilton Queenstown and four star property Kawarau Hotel, managed by Hilton.

Hilton Auckland is the leading international hotel, offering 165 contemporary hotel rooms and suites. The hotel enjoys a unique waterfront position surrounded by the breath-taking Waitemata Harbour and is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Auckland’s CBD.

Hilton Lake Taupo offers accommodations across a variety of room types including one and three bedroom apartments. Most rooms at Hilton Lake Taupo feature views of Lake Taupo and the volcanic mountains of the Tongariro National Park. Hilton Lake Taupo has been awarded with awards since its opening in 2009.

Hilton Queenstown, on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, showcases panoramic views over a world-famous landscape. This is an exhilarating setting, and one without compromise – just 15 minutes from Queenstown.
