New Marketing Manager at A&O

Katharina Wallmann moves from a catering start-up to the A&O hotel group. The 26-year-old Austrian will now be responsible for the chain's overall brand presence and heads a team of seven.

Speaking about her new remit: "I am convinced of my ability to plant the A&O brand firmly in people's minds! Europe has exciting cities, and we have the matching accommodation! Looking after the world's most wonderful pastime – travel – is a rewarding mission!"
Wallmann comes from a Salzburg hotelier family and was most recently in charge of marketing an online portal for corporate catering. She comes to A&O with expertise in the tourism industry and longstanding experience in the start-up world.

"Katharina was a stroke of luck for us! She embodies our international approach: Austrian-British roots, fluent in Italian and Russian, experience of foreign markets and a background in hotels; what's more, she's a qualified chef, young and agile and has a passion for challenges. The list is long", says a delighted Oliver Winter, General Manager of the A&O chain.
