Elke Pfeil, Owner & Director
I was born and raised in the beautiful historic city of Dresden. The experience of growing up in travel-restricted East Germany awoke my desire to travel the world, and the miraculous fall of the wall then opened the door to turn this dream into reality. I chose the glamorous international world of hospitality as a career path - and my subsequent passion for luxury boutique hotels, sales, marketing and revenue management eventually became the DNA of Revpar Marketing.
Straight after an apprenticeship with MARITIM Hotels in Germany I moved abroad and held roles in Operations at the famous Bürgenstock Resort in Switzerland and the iconic Gleneagles in Scotland. Drawn to warmer climates I relocated to Dubai in 2003, where I started out in Guest Relations, prior to joining Sales & Marketing within JA Hotels & Resorts in 2004. In 2007 I was part of the pre-opening team of the Shangri-La Hotel in Abu Dhabi as Business Development Manager Leisure. Thereafter I was appointed Director of Sales & Marketing for the Six Senses Resorts Maldives, in charge of the widely acclaimed resorts Soneva Fushi, Soneva Gili and the pre-opening Six Senses Laamu. After two years of barefoot island life I returned to lively Europe and settled down in my favorite city Barcelona, where I founded Revpar Marketing in 2011.
I have an MBA by the University of Sunderland, England and a Certification in Business Economics & Management by the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg, Germany.
When I am not working or travelling I enjoy long-distance running and yoga, studying nutrition and playing with my two cheeky cats.
Gemma Férriz, Senior Sales & Marketing Manager
Born in Barcelona it was obviously impossible not to dedicate my life to the Tourism Industry. I have a degree and a Masters in Tourism Management by EADA Business School and have 20 years experience in areas such as Aviation, e-Commerce, Business & Leisure Tourism and Destination Promotion, prior to joining Revpar Marketing and the world of luxury hotels in 2015.
I have lived in three different countries (United Kingdom, Canada and Spain) and enjoy meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds.
I am passionate about travelling, love diversity and the sound of different languages, my favourite place to be is anywhere I have not been. I am also interested in social media and how it has affected our lives, privately and professionally.
In my spare time you can find me and my family on a beach, roller-blading at the promenade, at the cinema or at a concert; I love music and movies and gourmet food and wine. I do Zumba and any type of dance classes when my twins allow me.
At Revpar Marketing I look after the markets of Spain, Scandinavia, Benelux and the UK.
Daniela Taller, Sales & Marketing Manager (German-speaking markets)
As I grew up in a little village in the north of Germany, I always felt attracted by the sun and exotic destinations. But my real travel passion began when I lived abroad for my international studies in Latin America where I discovered amazing places.
I have a Bachelor in Landscape Architecture and a Master's degree in Environmental- and Resources Management for the tropics and subtropics. After finishing my studies, I worked as a strategic planner for Ecotourism development in Mexico. Altogether I have lived and worked in Mexico, Brazil, France and Spain.
My communication and selling skills combined with a good eye for design and beautiful places led me to Revpar Marketing, where I am in charge of promoting our portfolio of beautiful hotels to the German-speaking market.
