New Member Spotlight – Rachel Stuart

Rachel Stuart  
Embassy Suites Columbus Dublin - Aimbridge Hospitality

Who are the most important people in your life?  My family. My husband and two children (Olivia 9yrs and Max 7yrs). We have coined the term “Stuart Experiences” and we enjoy traveling and experiencing as much as we can as a family.
Who do you work for and what is your role?  I am an Area Director of Sales for Aimbridge Hospitality. In this role, I am the full-time Director of Sales at the Embassy Suites Columbus Dublin. I also provide sales support for the teams at the Homewood Suites Columbus Dublin and the Country Inn & Suites Columbus Airport. 

What is the best thing about your job?  Working with sales teams to help them achieve both their professional and personal goals. It is very satisfying for me to watch a sales manager take on a new role or responsibility and excel. I love being part of that experience. 

What are the 3 most important skills you use at work?  Listening, hands on (working side-by-side with both sales and operations), and staying organized.

What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry?  Try everything! Explore all areas of the  hospitality/meeting industry until you find the career that is best fit for you. That might mean stepping down or back a few times to try something new or grow your career.  

What super-power would you love to have to help you do your job better? To read people’s minds. Communication is very important and at times can be challenging. I would love to be able to read people’s minds so that I can understand exactly what they need.  |
