Your Hotel™ Worldwide Appoints UK Regional Sales Director

London, United Kingdom, May 25, 2012 –(– Your Hotel™ Worldwide has appointed David Warren as its Regional Sales Director for its UK business unit as part of the company’s wider expansion plan.

With over 20 years of hotel system sales experience covering Property Management Systems (PMS) and Channel Management, David will help small, independent and privately owned hotels better understand the new and increasingly complex sales marketplace to improve bookings and revenue.

Prior to Your Hotel™ Worldwide, David worked as Group Operations Manager for a group of 14 hotels and within operational management for Edwardian, De Vere and Hilton Hotels.

“David’s previous experience will be invaluable to hotels when explaining how the wider sales and bookings marketplace works. The diversification of the reservations landscape has become somewhat complex with Online Travel Agents, Global Distribution Systems, corporate contracts as well as social media; hotels now need to know what will work specifically for them.
