Ronald Liem and Rene Mayer first met in Bali in 2014. As CEO of DestinAsian Media Group — which produces Indonesia’s leading travel and lifestyle titles — Ron was destined to cross paths with Rene, who at the time was Fairmont Bali’s Director of Sales & Marketing. When Rene moved to Fairmont Jakarta their friendship was strengthened, and often collaborated on spectacular events in the city.
Ron’s prominent publications and network of influencers and key opinion leaders, combined with Rene’s strong sales and marketing skills, have resulted in successful events with outstanding exposure. As a testament to the success of their collaborations, Rene and his team were named Best Marketing Department in Indonesia and Asia Pacific by the International Hotelier Awards. In 2021, Rene became Cluster Director of Sales and Marketing for three Hyatt properties: Grand Hyatt Bali, Hyatt Regency Bali, and Andaz Bali, which at the time was in the pre-opening phase. Ron and DestinAsian Media Group provided extensive support for the opening of the new Hyatt property, not only in terms of editorial, but also with exposure to Ron’s significant network and key opinion leaders. It was acknowledged as one of the best Hyatt openings worldwide.
As their vision and mission increasingly aligned, Ron and Rene began to imagine what they could achieve by combining their experience, strengths and networks. They decided to join forces and establish a world-class company catering to the hospitality sector’s unique sales and marketing needs.
After establishing a team of experts in Communications, Representation, and Contracting, the partners proudly introduced SCOP3 Group in 2022. What sets SCOP3 Group apart, however, is that beyond these services, Ron and Rene strive to maximize their partners’ revenues and deliver profitable results.
