HotelREZ names Sharon Rubin as new VP of Product Development

Rubin heads up a new Product Development team

Hotel representation company HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts has announced the return of Sharon Rubin, to the new role of vice president of product development. 

Rubin rejoins the firm after five years away. She was previously executive director ecommerce and global marketing for HotelREZ from 2009 to 2018 in Hong Kong. 

Prior to HotelREZ, Rubin worked for  Pegasus Solutions, ASP Events and Reed Exhibitions. 

“The opportunity to once-again contribute to this dynamic and forward-thinking organisation was too tempting,” said Rubin. 

“I’m excited to be back in the thick of the action, helping shape HotelREZ’s products and services, and working with the team who are equally enthused about the future of hotel technology and helping our clients achieve their business goals.”

Rubin’s appointment is complemented by two further new senior recruits, Kenan Davies and Olav Schuetz, to report into Deborah McGee, VP business development to further expand HotelREZ’s presence in Europe. 

Davies joins as business development director UK market. He was hospitality commercial strategy and sales consultant of Blue Horizon Hospitality and director of sales UK of Tripleseat. 

He has also worked as area director of sales (business Ttansient global) for YOTEL, and held on-property roles at midscale luxury hotels and country clubs including Great Fosters and Wentworth Club. 

Schuetz joins as business development director DACH market. He was previously country manager (DACH) for Triptease and has almost 30 years’ experience working in hotels as a general manager for independent hotel Gorse Hill and Accor in Surrey, UK.

“Sharon has long embodied how we care about our clients and our desire to continually improve their business,” said Mark Lewis, CEO of HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts. 

“Welcoming her back was an easy choice, and I’m delighted she’s being joined by Kenan and Olav to round out what promises to be an incredibly dynamic team as we approach our 20th anniversary.”
