News for the Hospitality Executive
June 5, 2012 (Los Angeles) - Edward A. Mady, regional director, West Coast, USA for Dorchester Collection and general manager of The Beverly Hills Hotel, has named hospitality executive Janice Snowden as area director of sales and marketing for The Beverly Hills Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air . In this role, Snowden assumes leadership responsibility for properties' leisure, group and catering sales, as well as advertising, public relations, e-commerce, revenue management and social media programs.
Prior to this, Snowden was the director of marketing for Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara, where she directed property marketing for four years and led a sales and marketing staff of 20. Active with the Santa Barbara Conference & Visitors Bureau and with the city's Film Commission and Marketing Committee, Snowden earlier led sales and marketing efforts for The Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica, California, and for upscale properties both in Washington, D.C. and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor's degree in hotel and restaurant management.
"We are delighted to welcome Janice Snowden to our legendary California hotels and know that she will be a stellar addition to both properties," said Edward A. Mady. "Janice's clear understanding of the luxury traveler and unique aspects of our Southern California culture make her an ideal and visionary leader for our marketing team."
Beloved by entertainment royalty, a haven for the world's famous and now a century-old landmark, The Beverly Hills Hotel is celebrating its centennial year. Since opening its doors on May 12, 1912, two years before the city of Beverly Hills was officially incorporated, it signaled the birth of the community and became a cherished second home to generations of Hollywood stars.
A fabled hideaway for nearly 70 years, Hotel Bel-Air reopened its doors on October 14, 2011, after 24 months of extensive refurbishment and redesign. Internationally renowned design teams, Alexandra Champalimaud and Rockwell Group, oversaw the thoughtful restoration of the 103-room property. Master Chef Wolfgang Puck and his restaurant group, the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, oversee all of the luxury hotel's food and beverage operations.
"I am thrilled to be joining these iconic hotels during such significant times in their celebrated histories, with The Beverly Hills Hotel's centennial upon us and Hotel Bel-Air recently reopened after a two-year closure," said Snowden. "The profiles of these properties are legendary, and it is inspiring and exciting to be selected to help uphold such acclaimed standards."
