Sam Toscano, CMP, has recently been appointed to sales manager for 1000 Island Harbor Hotel in Clayton, N.Y.

“Since opening a little more than two years ago, 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel, and consequently the destination, have seen a steady upsurge in visitors, conferences and weddings,” says Todd Buchko, general manager. “We’re thrilled to have Sam on our team to help manage the number of growing opportunities, and seek out more prospects that benefit both the hotel and community at large.”

Toscano's role as sales manager will be to bring in visitors both from the region and from all over the nation. He's had about eight years of experiences at Turning Stones Resort and Casino where he worked as sales manager.

Currently, Toscano is the president of the board of directors for the Eastern Great Lakes Chapter of MPI and is also a hospitality advisory board member at Monroe Community College in Rochester.

“I’m thrilled to begin working for such an incredible property and destination that are both becoming more and more known on both the consumer and business sides of hospitality,” says Toscano. “I hope to further boost Clayton and the Thousand Island region’s position and presence in the market.”
