Soneva has announced the promotion of its executive staff members to key sales and marketing roles within the group. The luxury resort operator promoted Nisachon ‘Nisa’ Amphalop to Global Director of Sales, and Carissa Nimah to Chief Commercial Officer.

Nisa has been working with the luxury brand for over two years. Educated from Stamford International University, Nisa worked with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts and W Hotels prior to joining Soneva. She joined Soneva team as the Director of Sales and made her way up to Regional Director of Sales within an year. Now she is the Global Director of Sales for the luxury resort operator.

I’m sure many of you will be familiar with Nisa, who has been with us already for a couple of years. Nisa is highly commercial, dedicated, hard-working and very independent.

Sonu Shivdasani, Founder and CEO of Soneva

Nisa will be reporting to Carissa Nimah, who has undertaken the role of Chief Commercial Officer for the world-leading resort operator. As the Guardian of the Brand, Carissa’s responsibilities include managing the marketing, sales and reservations at Soneva.

The reputation of our brand has increased substantially during Carissa’s ‘Guardianship’ over the past five years and I am confident that, together with the support of her team, we will go from strength to strength even during this challenging situation currently gripping the world.”

Graduated from University of Wollongong in Dubai, Carissa has been a part of Soneva team for over three years. She worked in marketing for various luxury brands across the world and started her career as a journalist in Australia. Prior to joining the luxury brand in Bangkok, she lived and worked in UAE, South Africa and Ireland. Her educational background and expertise in the field makes her perfect for her new role as the Guardian of the Brand.

While we are all reeling from the effects of the Covid-19 crisis on our businesses, I strongly believe that opportunities lie at the root of every disaster, and that this is a chance to improve the way we do business with each and every one of our travel partners. Together with Nisa and Carissa, we are committed to making things easier for you to work with us and sell Soneva; whether that’s improving our contracts, streamlining our offers or working with your marketing teams to better communicate our USPs.”
