Doug Phillips has now joined the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center team. He has more than 30 years of industry experience. Prior to this position Phillips was the regional director of sales and marketing for Destination Hotels. He has held several similar positions and had a variety of experiences working at properties in Hawaii and West Virginia.
He was chosen to lead at this time since the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center is about to start on a thorough renovation project in late 2015.
"Doug's experience in rebranding and repositioning hotels made him an ideal candidate for our team," said Michael J. Slosser, vice president and area managing director for Destination Hotels. "We are pleased to welcome him and know that his expertise will be invaluable as we plan for the property's exciting future."
Additionally, Phillips is a board member on the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Incentive and Travel Executives.
On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic.
