Eileen Cole


Eileen S. Cole has been named director of sales & marketing for Eaglewood Resort & Spa, a Benchmark Resorts & Hotels property.

Cole comes to her new position with three decades of success in hospitality sales and marketing, much of it invested within the Chicagoland market. She was most recently vice president of sales & marketing for The Bricton Group of Mt. Prospect, Illi., where she and her team successfully drove hotel and resort revenues for the company and supported its hospitality portfolio growth nationally. Previous to this, she held the position of director of sales and marketing for the Chicago Marriott Southwest at Burr Ridge.

"It is a great pleasure to welcome Eileen to Benchmark and to Eaglewood Resort & Spa,” said Eric Bates, Eaglewood Resort & Spa general manager. “She brings significant sales leadership experience to our resort. She also has important business contacts and market awareness which will be vital to Eaglewood’s success. We look forward to her active participation as part of our resort’s leadership team.”

Eaglewood Resort & Spa is nestled on 104 acres and offers 295 guest rooms and suites. In addition, the resort has three distinct dining venues, a full-service health spa, 18-­hole championship golf course and 37,000 square feet of IACC-certified meeting space.
