Pensacola Beach, Fla. (March 3, 2011) — Innisfree Hotels announced today that Joshua Butler has been named director of sales for the Hampton Inn Pensacola Beach Gulf Front. The 181-room hotel is located at 2 Via DeLuna Drive on Pensacola Beach. In his new role, Butler will direct all sales and marketing for the hotel including its social media marketing campaign.
Prior to joining the Hampton Inn, Butler was associate director of services for Economic Opportunity Commission of Nassau County, Inc. in Long Island, NY.
