Accra City Hotel’s Mr. Yaw K. Mamphey has been named “Best Marketing Director of the Year 2019 in Africa”.
Mamphey won the award at the 2019 Haute Grandeur Global Excellence Hotel Awards Night in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Well-known for his friendly and professional character, unique sense of humour and his infectious laugh, Yaw K. Mamphey joined Accra City Hotel as the Head of Sales & Marketing in January 2016. His connection with guests, key wholesalers, airline and industry partners and his own team led to his nomination as an excellent ambassador for Accra City Hotel.
When Mr. Yaw K. Mamphey was announced as the Marketing Director of the Year for Africa, there was a roar of excitement among the face to face promotions and marketing specialist’s workforce.
Mr. Mamphey took to the stage to claim his award, and deliver a speech to attendees. Speaking after the ceremony ended, Mr. Mamphey said, “I was delighted to be among the winners this year. It’s been a big four years at Accra City Hotel, and we’ve gone through a real transition and to be recognised with an award is a great honour. I am very fortunate to have a very talented team of people, who have a diverse but complementary skill-set. Apart from our ambition to be the best in the hospitality industry and increase market share, we also have a strong culture within the team of collaboration and the embracing of new ideas.”
Over 400 Industry professionals from all across the world travelled to the Malaysia’s capital for the event. Some of the most influential and successful figures in the industry flew in from Australia, America, UK and Ghana, specifically for the ceremony.
Mr. Mamphey was made aware of his nomination for the award a few months ago before the event, and the anticipation has been palpable. The Accra-based, face to face sales and marketing specialists, stepped onto the red carpet on arrival, before enjoying a champagne reception.
Accra City Hotels General Manager, Mr. Roman Krabel, personally congratulated Yaw K. Mamphey and expressed his sincere gratitude for sharing the Hotel’s vision and for providing outstanding leadership and inspiration to others.
