When Marriott International’s vice president premium & select brands, Sandra Schulze-Potgieter, joined the regional office, she was the first associate in marketing.

She then built the first integrated marketing team which included talent from marketing, brand, PR, ecommerce, loyalty, and partnerships backgrounds.

This solid foundation was invaluable when Marriott International merged with Starwood in 2017 as they moved from five people across the aforementioned disciplines to more than 60 team members. Schulze-Potgieter and her team look after 220 hotels under the P&S banner and out of the 150 hotels in the pipeline, 120 are P&S brands.

By the numbers

  • 2.5 years in the role
  • 20 years in the company
  • 15 years in the region
  • 20 years in hospitality
