Skamania Lodge announces new management additions to sales team
Skamania Lodge, by Destination Hotels & Resorts, located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, is pleased to announce two appointments to its sales team, Jenna Braden as the national sales manager, and Luke Andersen as sales manager. Joining Skamania Lodge after successful sales tenures at a number of U.S. properties, Braden is charged with creating custom sales campaigns that broaden the lodge?s client base and raise awareness for the property, particularly in the Seattle market. Andersen?s focus is on building sales for weddings, executive meetings and special events, adding to his previous experience managing the property?s front office.
?Jenna and Luke are great additions to the Skamania Lodge sales team,? said Ken Daugherty, general manager of Skamania Lodge. ?Their understanding and passion for the Pacific Northwest and this industry will help propel our resort to even greater heights.?
Braden and Andersen?s primary goal in their new position is to create productive off-site meetings and special events that leave a lasting impression. Skamania Lodge provides all of the components for a memorable getaway, offering two restaurants, a modern conference center, championship golf course, spa, indoor aquatic center and more than 45 recreational choices in and around the 175-acre wooded retreat.
A Florida native, Braden enjoys her new home in the Pacific Northwest, and loves discovering new fitness and outdoor challenges. Andersen, who was born and raised in Washington, is also quick to take advantage of the recreational activities his home state offers, including hiking, fishing and snowboarding, and is a loyal fan of the Seattle Seahawks.
