Omni Hotels proudly announces the promotion of Tamie Smith to director of national accounts for their National Sales Office in Irving, TX. Smith`s focus will be selling and marketing the Omni Hotels portfolio to religious market accounts.
Smith began her career with Omni Hotels in 1992 and has more than 14 years of hospitality experience. During her tenure at the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel, Smith served as front office manager, director of convention services, senior sales and director of sales, all of which played an instrumental role in her promotion to Omni Hotels` National Sales Office.
“Tamie has become a valuable resource to Omni Hotels over the past 10 years,” said Tom Chevins, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Omni Hotels. “When the company decided to focus more on the religious market, Tamie was a great fit for the position.”
Chevins says Omni Hotels` decision to focus sales efforts in religious markets aligns with the company`s stand for family and corporate values. Omni Hotels received more than 50,000 positive responses for their decision to remove adult movies from hotel roomtelevisions in 1999. The company also launched a children`s program, “Omni Kids,” in 2000 along with the hotel industry`s first online resource for kids, www.omnikidsrule.com.
Smith is an active member of RCMA (Religious Conference Management Association and CMCA (Christian Meetings & Convention Association). She and her husband, Henry, reside in Mansfield, TX with their two children, 11 year-old daughter Chanice and 6 year-old son Cameron.
