TRUMP® INTERNATIONAL HOTEL™ WAIKIKI PROMOTES MARCUS ITO TO DIRECTOR OF SALES & MARKETING

(HONOLULU, HI) March 16, 2015Trump® International Hotel™ Waikiki has promoted Marcus Ito to Director of Sales & Marketing. In his new role, Ito will focus on increasing business opportunities from all current and potential source markets, with a focus on growing the group segment, enhancing strong client relationships, and providing support to Trump Waikiki’s exceptional team of sales professionals.

“Marcus has done an outstanding job growing the crucial Asia Pacific segment of our business since opening,” said Scott Ingwers, Managing Director, “His ability to cultivate strong client relationships, coupled with his ability to manage and deliver on client expectations, have played a very large role in our sales success to date.”

Ito replaces industry veteran John Votsis who remains at the hotel as Executive Advisor – Marketing, and who along with Ito was part of the pre-opening team of Trump Waikiki nearly six years ago. Previously, Ito served the dual role as Director of Leisure Sales for Trump Waikiki as well as Global Sales Director – Asia Pacific for Trump Hotels.

Seeing the hotel rise from opening in the midst of a global recession to becoming the island of Oahu’s only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Hotel has been a gratifying journey for Ito. “We have been blessed to have such wonderfully dedicated associates working here at Trump Waikiki, contributing greatly to this prestigious hospitality achievement,” Ito commented. “I am looking forward to this opportunity to lead such a passionate and dedicated group of sales professionals”

Prior to joining Trump Waikiki, Ito worked as Director of International Marketing for Wyndham Vacation Resorts in Honolulu, Director of Asia Pacific Sales and Services for Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua on Maui, and in various sales and operations positions at Halekulani and Starwood Hawaii. Born and raised in Honolulu, Ito is a graduate of the University of Hawaii, Honolulu, where he earned a bachelor's degree in Asian Studies.
