    POSTED January 25, 2018

Kira Musolf has been named a Hospitality Hero award winner for third quarter by Meet Minneapolis, Convention and Visitors Association. This award is given quarterly to members of the Minneapolis hospitality community. Nominated by colleagues, this honors individuals or companies that have made impressive and memorable contributions to the image and culture of Minneapolis through their hospitality and service.

Musolf is most usually the first point of contact for visiting meeting planners. She has proven to provide a “stellar first impression” of Minneapolis. Musolf does a great job of grabbing her guests’ attention and catering to their needs, always meeting their requests with positivity and professionalism. Dedicated to her job, she treats the requests of a single guest with the same importance as a meeting planner bringing a large meeting to the city.

Kimberly Osterhout, Musolf’s supervisor and Director of Sales and Marketing, stated that Musolf is constantly seeking ways to improve. “Kira continually looks for ways to expand her knowledge about the hospitality industry as a way to provide increasingly better service and experience,” said Osterhout. “Kira has a passion for this industry and is an example of the type of professional that will elevate the hospitality industry.”
