Luxury resort chain, Soneva has announced two new appointments to its key sales and marketing roles. The resort chain promoted Nisachon Amphalop (Nisa) to Global Director of Sales, and Carissa Nimah to Chief Commercial Officer.

With over 9 years of experience in the sales and marketing field, Nisa has worked with W Hotels and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts prior to her move to Soneva. Starting off as Director of Sales, Nisa jumped the leadership ladder to the role of Regional Director of Sales before her promotion to Global Director of Sales, over the range of three years.


Hailing from Thailand, Nisa completed Master of Business Administration and International Business from Stamford International University. 


"Im sure many of you will be familiar with Nisa, who has been with us already for a couple of years. Nisa is highly commercial, dedicated, hard-working and very independent," said Sonu Shivdasani, Founder and CEO of Soneva.


Nisa will be reporting to Carissa Nimah, who has undertaken the role of Chief Commercial Officer for the group. As the Guardian of the Brand, Carissas responsibilities include managing the marketing, sales and reservations at Soneva.


Sonu Shivdasani further said, "The reputation of our brand has increased substantially during Carissas Guardianship over the past five years and I am confident that, together with the support of her team, we will go from strength to strength even during this challenging situation currently gripping the world."


Carissa began her career, as a journalist in Australia after graduating from the University of Wollongong in Dubai. She has filled various marketing roles at luxury brands across the world. Carissa makes the perfect candidate for her current position at Soneva considering her past experiences and educational background.


Sonu Shivdasani said, "While we are all reeling from the effects of the Covid-19 crisis on our businesses, I strongly believe that opportunities lie at the root of every disaster, and that this is a chance to improve the way we do business with each and every one of our travel partners. Together with Nisa and Carissa, we are committed to making things easier for you to work with us and sell Soneva; whether thats improving our contracts, streamlining our offers or working with your marketing teams to better communicate our USPs."
