On January 7, Up & Coming member Maureen Ohm hosted the group at Homewood Suites to talk about her roles with the company and the excellent hospitality offered through her businesses.
What is your role with Homewood Suites and are there other hotels you work with?
Director of Sales. TownePlace Suites South
What is the best part about the work you do?
A big part of my job is networking. I love that it truly is my job to be out and about in the community.
What do you think young professionals can do to help the visitor industry in Sioux Falls?
Everyone is an advocate of our great city. Simply sharing information with visitors about what you love about Sioux Falls or what you know is going on right now might encourage them to stay another night or come back for another trip.
What can young professionals do to help you in your position?
Young professionals can help me by connecting me with local businesses that have a need for room nights like companies that host training sessions, facilitate corporate relocations, or deal directly with folks who are displaced from homes.
