Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel Welcomes New Director Of Sales And Senior Transient Sales Manager
Both Stephanie and Maribel bring 10 years of experience in their own field
MIAMI (March 5, 2020) – Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel is pleased to announce the promotion of Stephanie Tablada to Director of Sales, in addition to the appointment of Maribel Perez as the hotel’s new Senior Transient Sales Manager.
A hotel sales professional with more than 10 years of experience in the industry, Stephanie has served as Surfcomber’s Associate Director of Sales since April 2017. Prior to joining Surfcomber, Stephanie held a Sales Coordinator position at Kimpton EPIC Hotel in 2011. After two years in her position, she moved on to work with both Morgans Hotel Group (now SBE Group) and Starwood Hotels & Resorts to pursue growth opportunities. In fact, her hard work and dedication allowed her to attain promotions into Conference Services Management, Catering Sales, and Group Sales. Although her experience at other companies was rewarding, Stephanie grasped at the opportunity to return to Kimpton in April 2017, after realizing how truly exceptional it is to work for a company that has been on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For® list for more than a decade. As Director of Sales, Stephanie will lead Surfcomber’s six-person sales team to develop strategies that establish Surfcomber as a leader in the marketplace through the development of future and repeat business. She was named Manager of the Year for 2018 at Surfcomber.
Maribel joins Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel from one of Kimpton’s LA properties, Kimpton Hotel Wilshire. She will oversee the corporate travel and leisure markets for Surfcomber and will be responsible for developing new retail travel leisure partners. Prior to joining Kimpton, Maribel worked in multiple Sales and Operational roles for companies such as Viceroy Hotels & Resorts, Starwood and Hyatt Hotels. Her background includes over 10 years of experience in hospitality. Maribel is an active member of industry associations and groups including GBTA, Millennials in Travel and MPI.
“An exceptional hotel requires an exceptional team – and Surfcomber is lucky to have Maribel and Stephanie onboard,” said Mohan Koka, Surfcomber’s General Manager. “Thanks to their combined experience and talent, our property can’t be beat.”
