About Us

Philosophy

We use our extensive and long-standing knowledge of the tourism market and our above-average networking with tour operators and travel agencies to ensure that our hotel and DMC partners (incoming agencies) have a better standing in the market, that their respective concepts are understood and that good networking can also take place. We communicate clearly, are proactive, act transparently and loyally and are always open to criticism.

Goals of cooperation

The first step is to present and place our partners with the tour operators both in the catalogues and on their websites. The second step is to support travel agency staff in selling hotels or roundtrips through innovative marketing measures. This includes presentations, training courses, roadshows as well as print and online advertising.

We also organise individual training courses directly at the travel agency!

Furthermore, we are happy to help with our expertise and experience in answering customer enquiries or planning events.

the pillars of joint success

During our more than 30 years working in the tourism industry, we have seen many developments, trends come and go. We have never lost sight of the goal set for HR&N: Success can only be achieved if we maintain open, honest and loyal cooperation with business partners like you.

Our philosophy is complemented by a convincing service with which, thanks to our creativity and competence, concentration and transparency, extraordinary ideas can be realized together with you.

Strong communication (internally as well as externally) is another important pillar for mutual success. Only with trust, a respectful togetherness and appreciation can we realize small and big goals for all sides together.

In the meantime, numerous partners have been closely associated with us since 2007. This shows us that with our concept we have embarked on a path of cooperation from which you as our partner (hotel, DMC, tour operator, travel agency) will benefit in the long term.

sustainability policy

We work sustainably by fulfilling the needs of our partners without compromising the ability of future generations to fulfil theirs.

HR&N follows three major sustainability principles:

Petra Schickling

Managing Director

As Managing Director & owner of Herget Representation & Networking GmbH, I started my self-employment in 2006, combined with the vision of representing luxury resorts and attractive destinations on the German-speaking market.

Within the next few years since the company’s inception, the territories to be serviced could be expanded first to Benelux, then Scandinavia and finally to Continental Europe. I have been working in tourism since 1992 with initial focus on North and Central America and Asia. Over time, the world has “become a village”….

So I now look back fondly on the successes and see the opportunities we have for our partners in the future. I am happy and grateful to have embarked on this path, on which I still travel with the same enthusiasm.

Kerstin Marks

Sales & Marketing Manager

After I have finished my degree in hospitality I bought a one way ticket to Australia and from then my passion for foreign countries, languages and cultures started.

After I have worked for two years in a marketing department for an Australian tour operator I return to Germany and became a team member of travel department at a French cosmetic company based in Dusseldorf.

From now on I’m delighted to have joined Herget Representation as a sales manager and represent the hotels and agencies in Germany, Switzerland and Austria and establish them on the market.

Susanne Lastein

Business Development Manager

I was born in Denmark but mostly lived outside Denmark and my passion has always been traveling. For 20 years I worked in the tourism industry in Portugal.

First as a Portugal manager for a travel agency, then as a general manager for a small 5-star sports hotel, and in recent years as a commercial manager for a company that ran several golf courses and resorts. I also founded a travel agency in Portugal and was co-founder and shareholder of a small airline, working in most areas of tourism.

For the last 13 years I lived in Germany and worked as a Sales and Marketing Manager with clients worldwide. I will be working in business development and looking forward to an exciting business.

Christine Altzinger

Sales & Marketing Manager

I am an ‘old hand’ in tourism and my area of focus is sales and marketing. With this specialization, I have gained years of experience in the hotel industry, in the airline sector, with a tour operator and a railway company.

With the support and marketing of the hotels of the Veranda Resorts in the DACH market, I build on my knowledge of the tourism and MICE market and am pleased to be working for this Thai hotel group.

The joy of travelling and my interest in far-away countries and cultures have accompanied me on my career path so far and I am looking forward to new experiences and adventures.

Jörg Schindhelm

Sales & Marketing Manager

…. Feeling at home away from home… that has always been my motto.

Coming from the hotel business and having worked there in all areas for a long time, I started my own consulting and lodging business in the 2000s.

My enthusiasm for other countries and foreign cultures has been boundless since my childhood, so working with other hotels abroad gives me a lot of pleasure and expands my horizon.

In Sales at HR&N I am currently in charge of the AYANA Hotels in Bali and Flores, as well as The Nai Harn in Phuket and I am looking forward to supporting my colleagues in building up new clients and maintaining the existing ones.

Inna Hosch

Sales Manager

My passion is to explore foreign countries, cultures and languages.

I have gathered first practical experience in the Event Management field during my studies. After my studies, I have worked for many years successfully as Sales & Marketing Coordinator in Regional Sales Office of Luxury Hotel group and looked after Travel Agencies and Tour Operators worldwide.

In my role as Sales Manager at HR & N I am taking care of exclusive Hotels of La Flora Group: 5* Casa de La Flora, 4.5* La Flora Khao Lak and 5* La Vela at  Khao Lak as well as of 5.5* Rayavadee Resort at Krabi. It is very important for me to provide the best service to our partners and clients.

Lilli Müller

Dual Student

I have always had a passion for travelling and discovering the many different cultures. I grew up bilingual with German and French, which is why I already had a passion for languages growing up. For this reason, I decided to learn the profession of a foreign language correspondent after graduating.

After successfully completing my apprenticeship, I am now ready to immerse myself in a new and exciting sector here at HR&N: Tourism. Combined with marketing, it is just the right thing for my dual study programme in Marketing and Event Management at the accadis Hochschule Bad Homburg.

I’m really looking forward to gaining lots of new experience and to actively supporting the team.
