“It’s amazing sometimes what happens when you ask for the business!” according to Patrick Hilchey, Corporate Director of Marketing for Lodging Host Hotel Corp. This remark was made recently by him when discussing the room revenue results at the Adoba Dearborn Hotel that the company took over management of on November 1st, 2014.
Lodging Host named Paul Banigan, GM of the hotel, taking over his new position on December 1st. Mr. Hilchey promoted George Nowsch, In the Adoba Sales Office to be Director of Sales for the hotel in early December. The stunning results of the reorganization of the Sales effort resulted in “Room Revenues in January 2015 up over 25% from both January 2014 or January 2013.” according to Patrick.
This is a trend that should continue into the future according to Mr. Nowsch. “Trisha Alexander, one of our top Sales Managers for many years, just this week booked a piece of business that should put $10 Million dollars in rooms business in this hotel over the next 3 years. That is as much rooms business as the hotel did in all of 2014.”
Good luck to the team in Dearborn!
