As Johannesburg’s luxurious 5* Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa steps forward into new beginnings with a lustrous refurbishment soon to be introduced in all its magnificence – so too can the travel industry and corporate market welcome the opening of a Cape Town office and the appointment of Angelique Engelbrecht as the Sales Executive for this region.
“Opening a Cape Town office was the next best commitment we could offer our partners, ensuring not only ongoing support, but also guaranteeing assistance for a guest’s personalised experience during their stay at Fairlawns’, says MD Michael Kewley. “It all starts with presence of place, so in the case of a hotel as intimate as Fairlawns, it is critical to have the right people in key positions. Opening a home based office in Cape Town is quite simply an extension of our existing personalised service,’ he continued.
Angelique is Cape Town born and bred and the youngest in her family. She started her career as a sales and marketing co-ordinator in 2001 at the renowned Victoria & Alfred hotel at the Waterfront, where after she joined the sales division of the hotel’s owner, Newmark Hotels in 2007. The rest is history as she never looked back, taking their prestigious portfolio to recognised heights upon her appointment to Key Account Manager for five unique properties located within South and Southern Africa and more recently into Rwanda.
“It has been an amazing journey so far and with my new position at Fairlawns, I believe I will be able to grow even further into an industry that I am extremely passionate about. My philosophy has always been to go the extra mile, added to which I think one has to ‘love’ what they do. Fairlawns gives me the opportunity to combine both,” says Angelique.
“Angelique brings great knowledge and expertise to our existing sales team, headed by Michelle van der Westhuizen who is based at the hotel in Johannesburg. Responsibilities within her new position at Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa will include maintaining existing accounts and building new relationships,” concluded Michael Kewley.
Angelique is married to her soulmate Christie and has a 2-year old little girl called Kylie.
