Kristina McConnell, Aimbridge Hospitality, recognized by WHLA as the 2023 Corporate Champion of the Year
Kristina McConnell is the Regional Director of Sales for Aimbridge Hospitality. A leader within her company, she was recently selected to be a market leader for the greater Wisconsin/Chicago market. McConnell is also in charge of gaining and maintaining Aimbridge Women Excelling events through connection and mentorship. Additionally, she was selected to be on a transition committee for the Select Service Division and appointed to a second term on the Aimbridge Topline Council.
Outside of her work at Aimbridge, Kristina shares her time and talents with the WHLA as an active member of the Wisconsin Women in Lodging. In addition to her committee service, she has been a speaker on many industry panels, and brought a plethora of new women into both Wisconsin Women in Lodging and the Wisconsin Hotel & Lodging Association.
Kristina has also been instrumental in helping with growing our WHLA lodging membership. In the past year, she enrolled nine Aimbridge properties in Wisconsin into membership with WHLA. All of the properties had never been engaged with our organization previously, and are now actively involved.
“Kristina McConnell is an inspiring and dedicated leader in our industry, and we’re lucky that she chooses to bring her passion and dedication to WHLA,” said Bill Elliott, WHLA President & CEO. He continued, “We are thrilled to give Kristina our 2023 Corporate Champion Award in recognition of her service to our association.”
The award was presented by 2022 Corporate Champion Jay Schumerth, First Hospitality.
