AAA Four Diamond-rated 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel in Clayton, N.Y., has appointed Sam Toscano as their new sales manager.

“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 previous position was an eight-year tenure as sales manager for Turning Stone Resort and Casino; he was responsible for the sales and marketing efforts for the resort.

He serves as the president of the board of directors for the Eastern Great Lakes Chapter of Meeting Professionals International and on the hospitality advisory board at Monroe Community College in Rochester. He has also earned the certified meeting professional accreditation.

“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,” said Toscano. “I hope to further boost Clayton and the Thousand Island region’s position and presence in the market.”
