Kristina Oumedlouz, MGM Resorts International

Joined MPI Georgia: July 2019

Help us welcome one of our new MPI Georgia members, Kristina Oumedlouz, who joined us in July 2019. As Global Sales Director for MGM Resorts International, Kristina proudly represents 13 Hotels in Las Vegas, 5 regional hotels in Biloxi, Detroit, Atlantic City, Springfield, Washington DC area as well as China.  She serves as a key contact for customers looking to place meeting and convention business within the portfolio consisting of 42,000 hotel rooms and four million square feet of meeting space.  Kristina has a B.S degree in Hospitality Sales & Meeting Management from Johnson & Wales University.

Kristina’s first job in the meetings industry was during her time at college where she worked at the Marriott as a banquet server.  She had a blast working with her college friends.  Kristina mentioned that her rookie career mistake occurred when the hotel was oversold and needed to relocate a FAM Group.  “Worst day in my career, ever.”  However, she puts into practice several key pieces of advice: “Have fun, be authentic, be respectful and stay calm; it always works out!”

Kristina finds inspiration in Oprah Winfrey due to her unbelievable success through persistence, hard work, and believing in herself and her dreams, despite being told by her family she wouldn’t amount to anything.  Kristina noted that “her ability to empower and support others through her generosity and kindness is awe-inspiring.  She just makes the world a better place.”
