Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa announced the appointment of Rhett Ferguson as director of group sales.

Ferguson began his career with Hyatt eighteen years ago and has been at the Hyatt Regency Maui for the last decade. In his new role he will lead the Group Sales efforts for the resort.

“Rhett is an incredible member of our team here at Hyatt Regency Maui,” said Ben Premack, director of sales for the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa. “His knowledge of the group sales industry coupled with his expertise on Maui makes him an invaluable resource to our clients and team.”
