Provenance Hotels has consolidated its Portland-area sales efforts for the Governor Hotel, Hotel Lucia and Hotel deLuxe. During the restructure, the hotels have hired Dani Boss, as Portland area director of sales, and promoted Chris Bebo to regional general manager.
Boss, whose new responsibilities will include leading the newly centralized six person sales team, is a 20-year veteran to the hospitality industry. She began her career in Alaska and then moved to Oregon where she has worked with the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Beaverton and the Oxford Suites in Portland. Her most recent position was director of sales and marketing for the Red Lion Jantzen Beach.
“I couldn’t be more pleased that Dani has come on board to lead our coordinated regional sales efforts” said Zie Zie Senzaki, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Provenance Hotels. “With her fantastic connections, depth of experience and broad range of sales know how, she is the perfect person to lead our team as they develop new cooperative strategies.”
Bebo will now manage both Hotel Lucia and the Governor Hotel, which formalizes a role he has been playing since the Governor Hotel was acquired in May 2012. He has held the position of general manager at Hotel Lucia since October 2011.
“I am thrilled that Chris is officially regional general manager for Hotel Lucia and the Governor Hotel,” said Bashar Wali, President of Provenance Hotels. “Team player that he is, Chris jumped at the chance to help us when we purchase the Governor and has done a great job keeping both hotels on track. We have many exciting changes planned at Hotel Lucia and the Governor Hotel and I could not think of a better person than Chris, with his operational expertise and inspirational leadership style, to lead these properties into the future.”
The three hotels are located within walking distance from each other in Portland. Combined, they offer 357 sleeping rooms and more than 31,000 square feet of meeting space.
