Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has appointed Todd Ryan as regional director of sales and marketing for the group’s 16 mid-Atlantic area hotels.
A seasoned hospitality veteran and strong leader, Ryan brings more than 20 years of hotel and resort sales experience to Kimpton’s regional leadership team.
In his new role, Ryan provides direction to all regional strategies as well as sales and catering staff for 16 hotels in Kimpton’s east coast portfolio, including ten hotels in Washington, DC, and one hotel each in Alexandria, Virginia; Baltimore, Maryland; Charlotte and Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Savannah, Georgia; and Nashville, Tennessee.
Kimpton’s mid-Atlantic portfolio has the highest concentration of properties in any US region – with over 2,700 guest rooms and nearly 81,000 square feet of meeting and event space across the 16 hotels, and the brand continues to expand and evolve in these markets.
As a regional director, Ryan will drive sales, catering and marketing activities for all segments across the mid-Atlantic, leading the hotel and area dedicated sales teams with an emphasis on maximising operating revenue and sales production, as well as providing counsel on digital marketing, advertising and public relations efforts for the region.
In his new role on Kimpton’s mid-Atlantic regional team, Ryan will draw from his strong sales background and leadership experience across his career, most recently as area director of sales and marketing in eastern Canada for Starwood Hotels & Resorts where he oversaw sales efforts and teams for seven hotels throughout region.
