Fontana came to Dream Hotel Group from Group SJR where she helped companies address marketing and business challenges through brand positioning, digital storytelling and audience development.

Dream Hotel Group also recently appointed Bridget Tran to Vice President of Ecommerce in July 2016.  In this role, Tran will identify and introduce exciting, new digital marketing concepts across the group’s growing portfolio of brands.  Tran brings 16 years of digital and marketing experience that includes world class operators Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, InterContinental Hotels and most recently Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces.
