Six Continents promotes Cayhill in firm restructure

Global hospitality group Six Continents has promoted Dee Cayhill to

the newly created role of vice-president and head of media relations as

part of a company restructure.



Cayhill will take responsibility for media activities across the

international, corporate, financial, trade and regional sectors for Six

Continents, which includes a retail division of restaurants and bars and

Six Continents Hotels, such as Crowne Plaza Holiday Inn and

Intercontinental.



Six Continents rebranded in August following the sale of its Bass

brewery business, which saw the name Bass Hotels and Resorts

disappear.



The group now concentrates on hotel and leisure activities. Cayhill's

previous role as director of comms for Six Continents Hotels in EMEA,

has yet to be filled.



Kathryn Holland joins as group media relations manager, moving from her

post as internal communications manager for Six Continents Retail.



Cayhill said her role was more demanding amid challenging business

conditions following the US terror attacks and the global economic

slump.



'The travel industry is getting together to forge a closer working

relationship.



Airlines were amenable to talk to hotels before 11 September, but they

are getting closer. We are now working on a global strategy following

the US terror attacks,' she said.
