Moving across from her current role as Marketing Coordinator, Rocky will manage Accor’s social media presence as well as supporting the communications team to generate traditional media coverage.

The creation of Rocky’s new role recognises the shift towards online media as a news source and the increasing importance of social media for Accor’s brands.

Both report to the Director of Communications Ginni Post.

“We’re excited to see our online channels continue to evolve and develop over the next few months.”
