Playa Adds Christian Roussin As Quebec/Atlantic Canada BDM
Playa Hotels & Resorts will expand its Canadian sales team with the addition of Christian Roussin as Business Development Manager of Quebec and Atlantic Canada on 5NOV 2018.

As Business Development Manager, Roussin’s responsibilities will include managing leisure and group sales in addition to working closely with Playa’s travel partners.
“The creation of the new position validates Playa’s commitment to the Canadian market and travel agent community,” said Rose Cosentino, Playa Hotels & Resorts Vice President, Sales – Canada. “I am thrilled to have Christian join the Playa family. Not only is Christian well respected within the travel community but I’m also confident that he will be a complement to our existing team.”
