W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island appoints Gráinne Murphy in Marketing

  • W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island appoints Gráinne Murphy as Assistant Director of Marketing


    Marriott’s W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island has announced a second appointment within its marketing department, with Gráinne Murphy stepping up as assistant director of marketing.

    Earlier in the week, the glamorous hotel also promoted Jatinder Singh to the position of DOSM.

    Originally from Ireland, Murphy’s introduction into hospitality was with Airbnb, where she worked a customer experience specialist in Cork. She stayed in the role for just over a year before flying out to Abu Dhabi, where she has stayed ever since.

    She joined Viceroy Hotel Group (the former operators of W Abu Dhabi) as executive assistant to the regional VP and managing director. A year later, she went to work with Marriott International, becoming office manager at The Abu Dhabi EDITION, climbing the ladder to become assistant marketing and communications manager and then marketing and communications manager.

    Speaking about her new role back on the Yas Island, she said: “I’m thrilled to join such an iconic brand in such a legendary location. With the help of my amazing team, the year ahead is set to be action-packed and full of excitement, culminating with the unmissable Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021.”

    Marriott added in a statement: “Being so passionate about the city of Abu Dhabi and lifestyle hotel brands, Gráinne jumped at the opportunity to join the renowned W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island.”
