After 30 years in hospitality, Christine knows one of the most important roles she plays in sales is that of company cheerleader. At LBA, she keeps her team in the game, driving revenue by motivating and encouraging everyone to do their very best – a natural fit for someone who grew up in an active, athletic family, cheering on three older brothers.
Christine was introduced to the hospitality industry as a child, traveling frequently with her family. Her first hotel job was with Holiday Inn, where she worked her way from the front desk to Reservations Manager, a position she held for 10 years. Looking to advance, Christine took an entry-level Sales Manager position with Wyndham. Over the next several years, she gained experience as Sales Manager and Director of Sales at Wyndham, Hampton Inn & Suites, TownePlace Suites by Marriott, and Hilton Garden Inn, opening four new Hilton properties along the way. Prior to joining LBA, Christine spent 14 years with Quality Oil Company (QOC) as Director of Sales and later Vice President of Sales.
Christine joined LBA in 2016 and now oversees sales efforts for the company’s properties in several southeastern states. She works to foster a sales culture that supports and completes each hotel, always looking for creative ways to keep LBA properties ahead of the competition and grow market share, while keeping the focus on the customer experience.
An avid baseball fan, Christine and her husband love going to Atlanta Braves games and attending other sporting events. She cherishes time spent with her two children who are now both in college; she is still their number one cheerleader.
