Meet the people behind Cendyn

Michael MarchandName: Michael Marchand

Title: Regional Director of Sales, EMEA

Describe your role: Hunt for the sale, assist our clients and develop our market share in new markets

Where are you located? Berlin, Germany

Tell us an unknown fact about where you are based: Being the capital of Germany you would think that this is a metropolis. But, with areas such as Nicolai Viertel in the heart of Berlin you wonder if you are really in a huge city with 3.5 million people.

What attracted you to Cendyn? The global outreach and flexibility of technology. And of course the team I am able to work with. And this is not a simple saying, it’s the most important thing to get you up on a rainy Monday morning with joy.

How do your strengths play into the work you do? I am a good networker and I can anticipate the needs of our clients. Makes some sales easier to close.

What do you like most about working at Cendyn? Straightforward company with fun and a future plan.

Favorite Cendyn moment: Just started my job but had the chance to spend time with John Seaton and Jeff Down. If you know them I don’t have to say more. Great guys.

Define hospitality in your own words: Ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen. Be there for your clients but try to be yourself. This will win your friends and business.

What do you like to do for fun? Play tennis, drive my old car and go out for dinner.

Parting words of wisdom: Do it today, not tomorrow. You will never know what tomorrow brings.
