SABRINA CENDRAL

Senior Vice President,
North America Marketing and US Sales

Born and raised in The Netherlands, Sabrina brings an extensive background of international business experience to Club Med as the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales for North America. Sabrina joined Club Med in 2008 after what felt like a “calling,” having spent her family vacations growing up visiting Club Med’s various ski and beach side resorts all around the world, as well as temporarily working as a flying trapeze instructor in the company’s Palmiye resort in Turkey. As the head project manager, she launched the brand’s Luxury Villas and Chalets, which are now an integral part of the company’s Exclusive Collection. In 2013, Sabrina relocated to Club Med’s North American headquarters in Miami as the Director of Brand, Communications and Product Marketing for the North American business unit. Shortly after, she was promoted to Vice President to head all of the marketing and digital efforts for North America –  where she spearheaded the launch of Club Med CREACTIVE by Cirque du Soleil, a partnership with Cirque du Soleil for an award-winning, in-resort interactive guest experience at Club Med Punta Cana. Sabrina can communicate fluently in English, French, Dutch and Spanish!
