As Regional Director of Sales, Gretta Spaulding grounds her professional philosophy in this belief: If you don’t like something, change it—and if you can’t change it, then change the way you think about it. Gretta’s upbeat outlook and adaptable approach to business were inspired by her mother, who lost a portion of her right arm when Gretta was 16. Watching her mother carry on and continue to do everything she did before the accident cultivated Gretta’s belief that anything is possible once you set your mind to it.
Gretta joined LBA Hospitality in 2021 through its alliance with 3H Group. She is putting her 20 years of sales and sales management experience to work by encouraging her team to be honest, hardworking, and hospitable every day. Before her work in hospitality, Gretta’s focus was primarily in the technology sector, where she worked with companies such as Verizon and Cisco Systems.
After graduating from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in Radio, Television, and Film, Gretta joined the NBC affiliate in Cincinnati, Ohio. Although she eventually transitioned from television to sales, she frequently draws upon her communication background when collaborating with colleagues and forging new connections with clients. Her proudest professional moment was relocating to Denver, Colorado, to open a new office for a new company in a new line of business. She and her teammates built an infrastructure from scratch and developed a turn-key process for expansion into additional cities.
A die-hard Cincinnati Bengals fan, Gretta enjoys watching NFL games, going for bike rides, traveling, and playing dominoes. She also likes spending time with her dog Zoey and visiting with friends and family over dinner and drinks.
