New marketing director at Hard Rock Hotel Budapest


Barbara Angelus has been appointed the new marketing director of the recently opened five-star Hard Rock Hotel Budapest.

She assumed her new position in January.

Angelus has been responsible for the marketing communications of several five-star hotels for the past 20 years, including the branding of the Kastélyhotel Sasvár in Parádsasvár, the Hertelendy Castle in Somogy County, and Klotild Palace of the Buddha-Bar Hotel Budapest.

Prior to COVID, she led the communication for the 125th anniversary year of the legendary Gundel restaurant for two years, and after the closure of the restaurant, she worked on the renewal and awareness raising of the university brand as head of the marketing team of János Kodolányi University.

Angelus believes it is important to mentor the next generation and has been teaching corporate and personal branding at the university for several years. Her innovative approach was recognized by the university's senate in 2020 with the title of Associate Professor. She is a member of the mentoring team of the Protégé Tourism Program, which aims to support young people starting their careers. 

For the last three months, she has been involved in the preparation of the market launch and communication of the 136-room Hard Rock Hotel in Nagymező utca.
