Top Sales Professionals Demonstrate Community Involvement, Association Leadership

Atlanta – May 14, 2012 – A property can be perfectly flagged and positioned but to quote Thomas J Watson, the founder of IBM, “Nothing happens until someone sells something.”  hotel SystemsPro wants to congratulate outstanding directors of sales that used their professional Golden Touch to make something important happen for their properties, owners, and communities.
 
“The hotel SystemsPro team understands that an effective hotel sales process is the foundation of success for nearly every hotel in the world.  Our company wants to honor the award-winning sales professionals recognized by their hotel companies for outstanding achievement,” said Edie Chandler Lowe, vice president of hotel SystemsPro.
