Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation and the Steamboat Grand Hotel has hired Jennifer Shea as their new sales director. In her new role, Shea will create and implement strategies for local, regional and national channels for tour operators, wholesalers, travel agents, properties and campaigns. She will also be in charge of pricing and products, overseeing conference programs and managing the sales team.

“Jenn’s strong background in sales and her in-depth knowledge of the Steamboat community and beyond make her an ideal addition to our sales and marketing team,” says Katie Brown, vice president of sales and marketing for Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. “We look forward to her fresh perspective, extensive sales background and hands-on attitude to build on the success of the sales and marketing teams at the resort and hotel.”

Shea has a bachelor’s degree in business administration and art history from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul and has extensive experience in the industry. Before joining SSRC, Shea worked as the national sales manager for Honey Stinger Energy Foods. Additionally, she’s worked as a program manager for the Yampa Valley Community Foundation and a product manager for Time/Warner.

“Steamboat is a premier destination, and I am honored to be able to share my passion and excitement for the resort, hotel and town with guests from around the country,” says Shea. “The sales teams at the resort and hotel have done an incredible job positioning Steamboat as a world-class destination for groups and events. I’m thrilled to join their efforts and lead this dynamic team.”

For the past 10 years, she has lived in the Yampa Valley and has been an active member of the community. She served on the Steamboat Springs Chamber marketing committee and was on the board of directors for the 4Yellow Foundation. Now, she serves on the Family Development Center’s board of direction, volunteers for the New Frontiers for Girls and Women Event, is a troop leader for the Girl Scouts, and a member of Camber.

From making her kids’ Kraken Halloween costumes inspired by Seattle’s National Hockey League team to chasing the sun in eastern Washington looking for spots to camp, Kelly Saling’s love for the Pacific Northwest is apparent in all aspects of her life—including her career. Promoted to senior vice president and chief sales officer at Visit Seattle in September 2021, Saling pulls from this personal appreciation to plug people into the region’s array of venues, natural landscapes, and everything in between.

 

Comfortable, familiar, and adorned with the color tones and tapestries of Peru, Portland’s Andina restaurant, housed in a historic onetime abattoir and warehouse in the city’s Pearl District, serves up modern Peruvian cuisine. 

 

Built in the vision of streamline modernism and art deco in 1941, the Vogue Theatre has become a hotspot in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district—a region known for its progressive hospitality and historic charm. “It’s a national registered historic site in Canada,” says Matt Friesen, general manager of the theater. While it is primarily a concert venue hosting artists such as Steve Lacy and Steve Earle & The Dukes, the Vogue’s nearly 10,000 square feet of space and mission to offer the utmost friendly customer service makes it a perfect venue for your next event.
