The Board of The Renaissance Club has announced the appointment of Stephen Walker as its new Director of Marketing & Hospitality, with immediate effect.
Prior to this appointment, Stephen was Director of Sales and Marketing at Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, an icon in the world of golf where he led the sales team with responsibility for all marketing, sales and events. Earlier in his career he was International Sales Manager for Scandic Hotels based in London and opened The Dalmahoy Golf & Country back in the early nineties.
Nestled in the heart of Scotland’s Golf Coast, The Renaissance Club’s exquisitely manicured greens and fairways have played host to elite golfers from all over the world, as well as a steady stream of millionaires – and billionaires – with a passion for the sport.
Stephen will oversee the management of the club, which will co-host its first tournament this year when the club welcomes the world’s leading boy golfers, for the Boys Amateur Championship in August 2016, alongside neighbouring Championship course, Muirfield. The club also boasts 24 luxurious lodging rooms, complete with spa, gymnasium and treatment areas and has perfectly appointed locker rooms, bar and fabulous dining experiences.
Stephen Walker said:
“I am very honoured to be joining The Renaissance Club as its new Director of Marketing & Hospitality at an exciting stage in the clubs development. The Club already has a highly regarded reputation and I look forward to building on this using my previous experience in both marketing & operations to elevate the club further in the digital age.
We will be exploring an array of commercial opportunities, which are fitting with private club membership policies, and following global trends, creating new partnerships and exposing the club to new & exciting target audiences with the sole of objective of revenue growth and ultimately more membership sales.”
