Fairmont Hotels & Resorts Recognizes Fifteen Sales
Executives with the President’s Circle Honor

TORONTO, April 28, 2008 – With an unparalleled collection of luxury hotels, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is also proud to lay claim to another fundamental attribute – an unrivaled team of worldwide sales professionals.  Earlier this month, Fairmont paid tribute to this extraordinary group, a team of sales stars that provide the greatest coverage per hotel in the global hotel industry, with the naming of its President’s Circle and Master’s Award winners. 

In total, 15 of Fairmont’s most productive sellers were awarded the coveted President’s Circle honor. To become eligible for the President’s Circle honor, a Fairmont seller is required to meet or exceed specific sales targets and must have accomplished this high standard at least twice previously during their career with the company. This is the highest honor afforded to Fairmont sellers.
