Four Seasons Hotel Prague Appoints Martin Dell as New General Manager

Czech Republic, Prague. April 01, 2020

Four Seasons Hotel Prague announces the appointment of Martin Dell as the new General Manager. This new role follows his most recent position as Resort Manager at Four Seasons Resort Maui, Hawaii.

Born and raised in the Czech Republic, Martin brings a wealth of global hospitality experience to his new role as General Manager in Prague. He began his career at the iconic Grandhotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary, before gaining a wide range of skills and hotel experiences with postings in Sydney, Hong Kong, and Doha. Martin's relationship with Four Seasons started in 2010 at Regent Singapore (formerly a Four Seasons hotel).

Martin holds a bachelor's degree in Business and Hotel Management from the William Blue Hospitality School in Sydney, Australia. He also gained a sommelier's certification from Wine Academy, Valtice, Czech Republic. Known for his strong leadership skills and management experience, Martin has also been involved in the creation of prestigious food and beverage outlets. His work on the Manhattan Bar at Regent Singapore resulted in numerous accolades; it came in third place in The World's 50 Best Bars and took the top spot in Asia.

"It's all about enjoying what we do. A healthy working culture, passion and dedication together make up the secret recipe for success. I do everything possible to support all our employees in their development, helping them to exceed their goals. Together, we are going to create magical moments for our guests and show them Prague at its very best." Martin is esteemed for his positive impact on employees and guests, his contagious energy, creative mindset and hands-on approach in day-to-day operations.

Martin is also happy to be coming home. "After almost two decades away, I'm thrilled to be back in the Czech Republic. I can't wait to share my knowledge and experiences with my new colleagues and with the next generation of hoteliers. Being a hotelier is a way of life, so becoming the first Czech General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Prague really is a dream come true for me."

In his free time, Martin is keen to rediscover Prague's restaurant and bar scene, support his favorite hockey team, and explore the Czech Republic's lakes and mountains with his wife Jana and his two children, daughter Stella and son Luca.

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
