Two Filipinas, Anna Vergara and Cleofe Albiso, have been named general managers at Marriott International’s latest two hotels in the country.
Vergara will lead Sheraton Manila, a 393-room hotel that forms part of Resorts World Manila, expected to open this year.
She joined Marriott International more than 24 years ago, working her way up the ranks to become Manila Marriott Hotel’s resident manager in 2009.
As well, Albiso is now general manager of the first Courtyard by Marriott property in the Philippines, located in Mandurriao Iloilo City, a 326-room hotel that just opened this May.
After leaving her post as head of marketing for the Visayas region at a telecommunications company, Albiso got her start at Marriott as the director of sales and marketing for what was then Marriott Cebu.
