We’ve made a five-star addition to our team.
Michelle Greene has joined our Sales Team bringing with her over 15 years of top-level hospitality experience. She comes with a pedigree that includes the Manor House Country Hotel, Five Star Celtic Manor Resort, The Merchant Hotel Belfast, Lough Erne Golf Resort and Ashford Castle Estate.
Graduating from the Ulster Business School at Ulster University with a degree in International Hospitality Management, she returned some years later to complete a Masters in Event Management, International Hospitality Management.
Making her way through the ranks, Michelle has gained some accolades along the way including Manager of the Quarter in 2018 and was Runner-Up Event Manager of Northern Ireland in 2020. A key point in her trajectory was securing a role as Trainee Operations Manager at Celtic Manor Resort – a competitive programme with over 300 applicants. In more recent years she moved to the revenue generating side of things and her last role before joining the WeddingDates family was Sales and Events Manager.
Michelle believes her success throughout her career is down to her strong operational grounding, and extensive experience with all customer touchpoints across the hospitality setting. She understands all that hotels have to deal with, from Front of House and Back of House support to banqueting, restaurants, family events and Weddings.
A career highlight for Michelle was back in 2013 when she was selected to serve the World Leaders at the G8 Summit including Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, Angela Merkel & David Cameron. She presented the official dinner seating plan to the World Leaders and was captured by The White House Chief Official Photographer.
With an eagle eye akin to a General Manager, and a passion for giving customers a personalised service, Michelle enjoys the thrill of personal success. Contributing to Revenue and seeing sales converting is just the icing on the cake. Beyond that, creating a lasting impact, and making a difference with both customers & colleagues is a daily motivator.
Michelle believes a “People buy People” mentality is essential within the industry, and customers will invest in the person as well as the product as a whole offering. A former client of WeddingDates, Michelle is delighted to finally come on board with the Team. She’s keen to contribute her knowledge from the industry to the company and to customers.
We’re delighted to have her.
