Maldives July 2017: Carpe Diem Maldives Pvt Ltd appoints Liz Smailes as Head of Brand and Marketing Communications, and Business Development Europe.
As Carpe Diem Maldives Pvt Ltd expands its reputable dive and surf liveaboard operations into resorts, it has brought in Minor Hotel Group’s former Area Director of Marketing Communications for the Maldives, Liz Smailes, to the expansion of its senior management team.
Liz joined Carpe Diem in June from Anthem Asia, an investment company in Yangon, Myanmar, where she was a consultant for the past year. Returning to the Maldives, Liz takes on a new role within Carpe Diem as Head of Brand and Marketing Communications and will be responsible for all aspects of the brand expansion, marketing communications and PR strategy. From the UK, Liz will also oversee the company’s European business development.
Building on Carpe Diem’s strong name over the last nine years as a liveaboard dive operator of three luxury cruises in the Maldives, Liz joins the company at an exciting time of expansion into resort hospitality. Agnes Van Linden, Assistant Managing Director of Carpe Diem says Liz will bring a “wealth of experience” to the role having worked previously with brands such as Anantara and Per Aquum.
