TORONTO — Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has appointed Kinga Rychalska as director of Sales and Marketing at Kimpton Saint George in Toronto. Kinga will oversee all marketing-and-sales initiatives for the hotel, as well as the sales and catering teams.
“We’re so thrilled to welcome Kinga to the team,” says Bertrand Mangeot, general manager at Kimpton Saint George. “Her extensive experience within the hospitality industry is remarkable, as is her familiarity with our parent company, InterContinental Hotels Group. We’re looking forward to all that Kinga will accomplish here.”
Rychalska brings more than 20 years of experience in hospitality, demonstrating excellent leadership and knowledge in business development, negotiation and account management. After earning a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a minor in Marketing from Ryerson University, Kinga went on to work for a number of hotel brands before finding her footing with InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).
Her journey with IHG dates back to 2003, when she joined the group as a Sales manager. Following her initial position with IHG, Rychalska occupied an area sales manager role outside of the hotel group before rejoining the family. Since her return in 2012, she has left her mark on numerous IHG properties, namely the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Toronto, Holiday Inn Toronto Airport, Holiday Inn Toronto Airport East and Holiday Inn Express Toronto Downtown.
Rychalska has proven effectiveness in revenue management, budget allocation and sales-and-marketing initiatives. Her familiarity with IHG’s processes and policies has allowed for her to confidently approach and execute brand initiatives at a local and corporate level with great success.
