A 20 year career at the Hilton

Laetitia Barchewitz, the Director of Business Development at two Hilton hotels in Paris, came back to her school twenty years later to talk about her career and present the hotel brand to students on the Campus.

A 20 year career at the Hilton

A Vatel Nimes 1994 alumnus, Laetitia Barchewitz was hired by Hilton Worldwide as soon as she had finished her final internship. 

Being promoted from one job to another for over 20 years, she has had many functions and climbed the corporate ladder in this hospitality chain: 

  • Business Center Coordinator,
  • Conference and Events Coordinator,
  • Conference and Events Sales Manager,
  • Yield Manager,
  • Conference and Events Director,
  • Citywide Events Sales Manager France
  • Deputy Sales Manager for France,

Up to the job she currently holds as the Hilton Paris Orly Airport and the Hilton Paris La Defense Director of Business Development.

This expert in the Hilton brand and Sales and Marketing positions thus came to tell her story and that of the Hilton chain to Vatel fourth year students.

“It was a real pleasure for me to come back to Nimes after 20 years and share my experience with students. And what a joy it was to see how much the school and the application hotel have changed. This presentation led to a myriad of exchanges and very relevant questions. I do hope that we’ll be able to host some students and Vateliens in our Group in the upcoming months. Thank you so much for your hospitality... the true heart of our job.” Laetitia Barchewitz
