Destination Hotels & Resorts Inducts 32 Sales
Leaders into Inaugural Chairman’s Club
Englewood, Colo. – Jan. 24, 2007 – In 2006, Destination Hotels & Resorts launched its Chairman’s Club sales associate recognition program to award and reward sales leaders in the company. Earlier this month at the company’s annual Sales & Marketing Conference at Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, Calif., the company recognized the first 32 sales associates to be inducted into the inaugural Chairman’s Club.

“The Chairman’s Club program promotes healthy competition within our sales teams,” said Andre Fournier, vice president of field sales for Destination. “We wanted to provide an incentive and recognition to our associates who consistently exceed their productivity goals. Our goal is to build a sales and marketing community that provides a ‘best in class” associate value proposition  for sales and marketing professionals.” 

More than 32 sales leaders achieved Chairman’s Club status with performance exceeding 115 percent of their productivity goals. These individuals consistently met or exceeded their quarterly quotas. 

Chairman’s Club designees were rewarded with a $1,000 bonus and a three-night, four day incentive trip for two to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Associates in the Chairman’s Club also receive special business cards that note their designation in this prestigious group.
