Director of Sales & Hospitality
Hailing from five generations of hoteliers, restaurateurs and estate managers, Hanneke’s understanding of VIP services is unlike anything I’ve experienced. She personifies hospitality and Sales. Family lineage aside, she has worked with some of the worlds best hotels, resorts and restaurants; in her career she has hosted Presidents, dignitaries and royalty. Hanneke’s primary role at Soutirage is to listen to our clients and develop strategies to grow our business. She currently manages our Sales Team and trains every member of our staff once they join our Soutirage family.
Originally from the deserts of Phoenix, Arizona, Hanneke De Cook always nursed a dream of living by the beach. After completing her degree in Early Childhood Education, the opportunity presented itself as a job with Disney based California. Hanneke served as a VIP tour guide for the parks and graduated to guiding for Adventures by Disney and created itineraries all over the world. Her experiences coalesced to define a love of people, food, and wine-ultimately leading her to Soutirage where she applies her extensive experience to developing Soutirage Sales Stategy and Soutirage Travel.
On the weekends Hanneke’s priority is still adventure, just now focused on her own hobbies including Soul Cycle, paddle boarding and trying new and exciting cuisine. Most of all, Hanneke enjoys walking her dog Beso on Newport Beach, where she now resides.
