Going all the way up!
Suncoast Casino, Hotels & Entertainment is pleased to announce the appointment of Meshalin Naidoo – previously Promotions Producer – as their new Events & Promotions Manager.
Meshalin has more than five years working experience within Tsogo Sun’s SUNCOAST operation. His first position was as Marketing Assistant in 2011, assisting with event promotions and day-to-day productions. In mid-2012, he moved into the promotions (gaming) side of the Marketing department, working closely with gaming producers, assisting with promotional elements such as creating concept documents and staff briefings along with the day-to-day running of the promotions’ operational aspects.
“We are very pleased to have Meshalin as the new Events & Promotions Manager,” says SUNCOAST Marketing Manager, Louise Howell. “He is an individual that lives the organizational values and understands what the business and, most important of all, the culture is all about. We welcome him with very open arms and wish him the best of luck and encourage him to continue his sterling work ethic that got him to where he is today.”
In 2013, Meshalin received his first taste of the position when previous Events & Promotions Manager, Vashna Singh, went on maternity leave. This afforded him the opportunity to run with events. Never one to rest on his laurels, he relocated to Golden Horse Casino, in Pietermaritzburg in 2014 to take up the post of Events & Promotions Co-ordinator.
Later that year, he returned to Suncoast after successfully applying for a Promotions Producer position before being promoted to his current position as Events & Promotions Manager. “It has been an exciting five years within Suncoast and I cannot wait to add another few more years to my portfolio,” Meshalin says. “I am very thankful to all the colleagues and managers who have mentored me and helped me get to where I am today.”
Meshalin has also successfully completed several Tsogo Sun training courses such as accounting and excel courses, emotional intelligence for management, and talent management for managers.
