MIAMI, Fla. – April 26, 2011 – Conrad Miami today announced it has named Philippe Thevenet as director of sales and marketing for the 203-room luxury hotel in Miami’s business and financial district.

Winners of this prestigious award are selected annually based on their individual performance for exceeding revenue goals while creating value for their customers, continually innovating solutions and driving dominant market share in their respective areas.
Thevenet earned a master’s degree from the University of Angers, France, in management and marketing in the tourism industry.
