Today, Wyndham Group, based in Parsippany, N.J., welcome a new member to their team.

The organization hired Kathy Maher as senior vice president, global sales and revenue—an expanded role now in charge of the company’s global sales efforts.
 
Maher, who most recently served as senior vice president of revenue management, will be responsible for designing innovative sales strategies and leading a dynamic global team of more than 125 salespeople.

Her sales teams will focus on deploying new technologies, building faster commission payments, creating training initiatives and developing new incentive programs for meeting planners.

Prior to joining Wyndham Hotel Group Maher spent 12 years at Hilton Worldwide. There, she held various roles, most recently as vice president, revenue management, in the company’s Americas division. She also spent 15 years with Marriott International, Inc., in a number of sales leadership and marketing positions, including area director of market strategy, director of sales and marketing and cluster director of revenue management
 

“Kathy is a seasoned leader who delivers results, and in her new role she will help inspire fresh and thoughtful solutions for our corporate clients and meeting planner partners,” says Josh Lesnick, executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “Her background in sales, as well as revenue management, and her proven track record of building a winning culture makes her the perfect fit to shape our sales philosophy and strategies on a global basis as we produce exceptional experiences at our properties.”

 
 

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.
