Kevin Gilbert accepted the General Manager position after acting as interim General Manager for the last three months, while Kori Kineshanko is being brought on as the Director of Sales and Marketing.

Gilbert has spent the last 39 years in the hospitality industry after getting his start as a houseperson at the Hilton Lincoln Center in 1983. While there, his mentor encouraged him to grow and work toward becoming a manager and within 10 years, Gilbert had been promoted from assistant banquet manager to fine dining manager.

The Dallas-native has held other various roles within the Hilton family including Director of Catering, Director of Food and Beverage, Director of Operations and Rooms Director. He has been on the Board of Directors for a variety of different hospitality and hotel organizations, and plans to stay involved in the Scottsdale community. When he is not working, Gilbert enjoys cooking, exploring trails, refereeing high school football and mentoring high school and college-bound students on how to prepare for the professional world.

Kori Kineshanko

As a dual citizen spanning her career in both Canada and the U.S., Kineshanko started her hospitality career as a corporate travel manager with American Express in 1996. She moved from sales development to director of sales and marketing in 2010 when she moved to Arizona, working with luxury resorts in both Scottsdale and Sedona. Her career then took her to San Antonio, Dallas, Santa Fe, New Mexico, San Francisco, Seattle, and Jackson, Mississippi before landing in Bend, Oregon.

“I am thrilled to return to Scottsdale to join the Senna House team,” said Kineshanko. “The Valley is experiencing a revitalization, and I’m excited to see how Senna House fits into the market. I look forward to connecting with other hotels and organizations in the community to keep Scottsdale on the map as a destination for all, and make Senna House the go-to hotel for travelers.”

Kineshanko also received her teaching certification and taught in the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management at a private college in British Columbia. In her off time, she enjoys cooking, gardening, horseback riding and entertaining guests at her home. She is also a mentor to women in the workforce, as she has a passion for promoting women and giving them opportunities to grow their career in the male-dominated hospitality industry.
