Our Story

Ron and Rene first met in 2014 in Bali. Ron, as the CEO of DestinAsian Media Group, was bound to cross paths with Rene, who at the time was the Director of Sales & Marketing for Fairmont Bali. Their partnership was getting more frequent and solid when Rene moved to Fairmont Jakarta, as they often collaborated to organize spectacular events in the city.

Ron’s prominent publications and network of influencers and socialites, combined with Rene’s strong sales & marketing skills, have resulted in successful events with outstanding exposures. Rene and his team even received an award for Best Marketing Department in Indonesia and Asia Pacific from the International Hotelier Awards, thanks to the events they organized together.

Throughout the years, Ron and Rene’s partnership, as well as friendship, kept growing and getting stronger as they shared many like-minded interests. In 2021, Rene became the Cluster Director of Sales and Marketing for three Hyatt properties in Bali – Grand Hyatt Bali, Hyatt Regency Bali and Andaz Bali, which at the time was in the pre-opening stage. Ron and DestinAsian Media Group provided much support for the opeing phase of Andaz Bali, not only with editorial support, but also significant network and exposures from key opinion leaders, that it was acknowledged as one of the best Hyatt opening worldwide.

The best of friends often share their vision and mission in life, and one evening, over some glasses of fine wines, Ron and Rene were inspired by the potential success they could achieve by combining their strengths. Ron with his knowledge and network in media and advertisement industry, and Rene with his natural skills in sales and marketing, were set to join forces and establish an elaborate company that caters to the hospitality industry’s sales and marketing needs.

After meticulously working and fine-tuning every detail, the partners proudly introduces SCOP3 Group in 2022, equipped with a team of experts focusing on Communication, Advisory and Contracting services. What sets SCOP3 Group apart above the rest is that beyond the Communication and Advisory services, Ron and Rene also aim to maximize revenue and deliver profitable results to the clients with their Contracting service.
