Named Director of Sales Marketing
At Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center – CO, USA
The Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center Hotel, housed in one of the state’s most famous and historic buildings – the former Colorado National Bank Building – has announced the appointment of Kelly Wilson as its director of sales and marketing. Wilson joins the team with nearly 20 years of experience in hospitality sales and marketing and a multitude of industry accomplishments: she received the Sage Hospitality Sales Leader of the Year award in 2004, saw year-to-date growth in many of her sales roles and started her own task force consulting company, Bloom Hospitality, in 2008. While Wilson has worked with hospitality organizations such as KPartners Hospitality, serving as a leader in hospitality sales, she is no stranger to the Renaissance Denver Downtown. Wilson was the sales manager and part of the pre-opening management team of the property in 2014.
Most recently, Wilson was the director of sales for Hilton Garden Inn Denver Downtown where she increased weekend business by 4 percent. The majority of Wilson’s career has been spent locally in Colorado, where she has served roles ranging from sales manager, director of sales and senior sales manager for various properties including Hilton Garden Inn Denver Tech Center, The Curtis Downtown Denver and Holiday Inn Denver East Stapleton, among others.
At the Renaissance Denver Downtown, Wilson will strive to lead the team in implementing revenue-generating practices that exceed competitive sales objectives. Wilson will supervise and train the sales team at the property and will work closely with Damion to strategize sales and marketing initiatives to maximize hotel revenue.
Outside of her day-to-day role, Wilson is involved in two different non-profit organizations: Rocky Mountain Huntington’s Disease Association and YES (Youth Education Sports Fundraising).
