Testimony of Sarah Rongere, Event Manager, Pullman Brussels Airport
"After getting my degree in hotel management I joined the Pullman Brussels Airport hotel in July 2007, when it was still Sofitel, as a sales and banquet coordinator. When we learned about the transition to the Pullman brand I was immediately very excited to learn about the new Co-Meeting offer and the career opportunities that the change created for me personally."
