Mercure Cairns Harbourside has appointed David Penney to the position of Sales & Marketing Manager. David returns to Cairns after six months as Assistant General Manager at the Mercure Port Douglas Treetops Resort.
Prior to this he was General Manager of the All Seasons Gateway Resort in Cairns, where during his tenure he oversaw an extensive external renovation project which saw the property win the ‘Best Commercial Streetscape’ at the 2010 Cairns Regional Council’s Streetscape Gardening Awards.
