Like most industries, hospitality took a hit during the economic downturn, but the Arizona travel industry started to recover in 2010 and pumped $18.3 billion in direct travel spending into Arizona’s economy in 2011.

Helping fuel that economic engine is the Arizona chapter of the the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI). Az Business is profiling some of those HSMAI members who are driving Arizona’s economy.

What attracted you to the hospitality industry? “Golf is my passion and to be able to do what you love every day, I don’t ever feel like it’s work.  My office is a golf course — it doesn’t get any better than that.”

Biggest challenge: “The economy. When the economy is down, people don’t travel, which hurts our industry,but when it’s up, the industry thrives.  It’s a double edge sword being tied so directly to the economy.”

Greatest accomplishment: “Being selected amongst my peers as the hospitality sales and marketing person of the year.”

What attracted you to the hospitality industry? “All of the opportunities to assist guests and clients in creating outstanding meeting and or events. I never would have thought that I would make so many friends along the way.”

Biggest challenge: “As amazing as our destination is, sometimes it is a challenge to overcome the negative media our industry has had to face these past few years.”

Greatest accomplishment: “Being the president of the HSMAI Arizona Chapter for 2012.  It truly has been an amazing year. We were able to offer and grow our  mentorship program with the hospitality students in our collegiate chapter and we selected a new charity of the year.  The partnerships that were developed in our chapter this past year have been so rewarding and making a difference for all who are involved.”
