Wisconsin Dells, Wis.
Kalahari Resorts and Conventions announces that Tifani Jones joined the company as corporate director of sales. Based at the company’s headquarters in the Wisconsin Dells, Jones will oversee the sales teams there and at the Kalahari Resorts locations in Sandusky, Ohio; Pocono Mountains, Pa.; and a fourth location breaking ground next month in Round Rock, Texas.
Kalahari Resorts and Conventions has hosted more than 22,000 groups to date and is experiencing incredible growth with planned expansions of the convention centers at both the Wisconsin Dells and Pocono Mountains locations and with the addition of a new property in Texas.
“We are grateful to have Tifani Jones on our team,” said Kevin Shanley, chief revenue and sales strategist, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions. “She believes, like I do, that groups should have a beyond-expectations experience at Kalahari Resorts. Her ability to give first-class service, cultivate relationships and lead the sales teams will be essential as our convention center expansions open in 2019 and we begin to book groups for our new Round Rock location opening in 2020.”
Jones is passionate about the meetings industry and brings more than 20 years of experience in hotel and hospitality to her role. She served as director of sales for both Marriott and Sheraton brand hotels, and for the last eight years Jones worked as director of sales and service for the Wisconsin Dells Visitor & Convention Bureau.
As a native of south-central Wisconsin, Jones’ career in hospitality began in high school, cleaning guest rooms in the Wisconsin Dells. Jones is crazy about her basset hounds and spends much of her free time volunteering for causes that are close to her heart.
