DENVER – November 12, 2019 – Andre Fournier, executive vice president sales, marketing, revenue for CoralTree Hospitality Group, today announced that Lisa Josoff has been hired as a global sales director rounding out the company’s global sales team. In addition to Josoff, Julie Tenge and Allison Sayer form the global sales team. The program was established to create brand ambassadors for the properties at industry events and provide meeting planners with one main point contact to accelerate the planning process. The GSO team ultimately creates a seamless and cohesive booking process for customers at CoralTree’s collection of hotels and resorts.
“The GSO is a convenient alternative to shopping all CoralTree properties,” said Fournier. “One person can manage the RFP process and provide the best recommendations based on meeting goals including budget, timing, space needs and desired outcomes. Their unique position allows them to leverage resources across the CoralTree collection.”
Global sales directors handle everything from group and corporate business to consortia, tour and leisure needs. By leveraging the resources of the complete CoralTree collection and using intimate knowledge of the strengths of each property, the team can make the meeting planning process more manageable to focus on the content and results. Extensive property knowledge and exceptional client relationships will support each individual hotel and generate business. The directors also can provide client with timely updates about new properties that join the portfolio, recent property enhancements, special promotions and current offers and value dates.
Josoff will manage the eastern region of the United States. She brings a diverse portfolio of 23 years of industry experience with a strong sales and marketing background, deep familiarization with group meetings and a passion for generating new opportunities to the CoralTree team. After starting at Hyatt, she has continued to excel and held positions at a number of hospitality companies with a focus on providing excellent customer service through stakeholder collaboration.
