Marriott Enhances Senior Level Support of Asia Pacific Loyalty Program

Marriot Loyalty ProgramTo offer an excellent customer experience and win customer loyalty, it is imperative that brands take a top-down approach. Leveraging the support of executive leadership can align the goals of the company with the needs of the customer. This can help ensure that customer experience is consistently communicated as a leading priority and embraced as a philosophy across the entire organization.

In an effort to reaffirm its commitment to customer experience and loyalty, Marriott International Asia Pacific recently made a significant addition to its senior level staff. Anka Twum-Baah has just been named the new Vice President of Customer Loyalty & Content.

In her new role, Twum-Baah will spearhead initiatives to build strategic relationships across Asia Pacific and expand the membership of Marriott Rewards, the award-winning loyalty program that brings benefits to guests all across the world.

"This is an exciting time for Marriott International in Asia Pacific,” said Peggy Fang Roe, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Asia Pacific. “Our portfolio in this region is growing rapidly and we will have over 300 hotels in 10 lodging brands across 16 countries and areas by 2016. I am pleased that a dynamic executive such as Anka joins my team.”

Twum-Baah’s extensive resume, which includes successful luxury hospitality and marketing experience at companies across Hong Kong, Singapore, and London, is expected to be singularly beneficial to Marriott.

Marriott International has a great loyalty program and magnificent portfolio of lodging brands. We are well poised to meet the needs of next generation travelers through ongoing innovations.”
