Broadmoor Names New Vice President, Sales & Marketing

Broadmoor Names New Vice President, Sales & Marketing

Mr. John Washko, a career veteran of the hotel sales industry, has been promoted to the position of Vice President, Sales & Marketing for The BROADMOOR.

Colorado Springs, CO (Vocus) January 22, 2007

Mr. John Washko, a career veteran of the hotel sales industry, has been promoted to the position of Vice President, Sales & Marketing for The BROADMOOR.

Involved in many aspects of the hospitality industry on both a local and national level, Mr. Washko serves as chairman of the HSMAI Resort Marketing Special Interest Group; he sits on the board of Experience Colorado Springs (the convention and visitors bureau) and is chairman of their marketing committee.

With 26 years of hospitality experience, Mr. Washko began his career in hotel sales in Washington, D. C., where the highlight was his tenure at the Sheraton Carlton, now a St. Regis property. In 1993, his career direction shifted to the resort segment when he became National Sales Manager at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. From that position, Mr. Washko advanced to Kerzner International Resorts, Inc., selling both the 2,300 room Atlantis, Paradise Island and the exclusive 102 room Ocean Club Resort. In his seven years with Kerzner, he rose from National Sales Manager to Executive Director of Group Sales.

Mr. Washko joined The BROADMOOR in 2003 as Director of Sales. In his new position, he will oversee all sales, advertising, marketing and public relations efforts.

Stephen Bartolin Jr., President and CEO of The BROADMOOR said, "It's rare when you can fill a senior executive position by way of planned transition. When Mike Dimond rejoined The BROADMOOR four and a half years ago, he promised me he would get us where we need to be, but also hire a person who would be hand picked as his successor. We can do so many things right in any business. Unless you can market and sell your products and services effectively, it' all for naught. I can't imagine any position that has more importance to it. Therefore, it gives me great pleasure to promote John into this position. I can't think of anyone in the entire industry more capable for these duties and responsibilities."

Mr. Washko and wife, Kim, enjoy the Colorado outdoors with their eight and four year old sons.

The BROADMOOR is the longest-running consecutive winner of both the AAA Five-Diamond and the Mobil Travel Guide Five-Star awards. For more information on The BROADMOOR please call 800.634.7711 or visit www. broadmoor. com.

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) October 1, 2004 -

Sheeraz Hasan, CEO of Tinseltown TV and international media figure, was named Global Ambassador for humanitarian interest group Youth for Human Rights International in a ceremony attended by numerous entertainment industry figures and international dignitaries. Sheeraz joined a pool of roughly 2000 nominees, and was personally selected by Youth for Human Rights International director Mary Shuttleworth on the basis of his global reach to an audience of over 500 million viewers, and his dedication to the cause of universal human rights.

In announcing the appointment, Ms. Shuttleworth said:

“Since establishing Tinseltown TV, Sheeraz has used his weekly television broadcast as a voice box for a variety of humanitarian and charitable organizations dedicated to improving the well-being of people of all ethnicities in all walks of life. His personal statements on the show stress the importance of inter-cultural awareness and acceptance, and he promotes peace and harmony among people of different nations by stressing the importance of spirituality and finding strength in what we have in common. It is amazing to see a person so young achieve such unprecedented success in the arena of international broadcasting and entertainment. With a global following from his hit tv show Tinseltown and many awards to his credit, including a US Congressional recognition and Resolution from the California State Assembly, Sheeraz truly is the American Dream. Youth for Human Rights International is honored to have a person of his caliber as our Global Ambassador”

During his tenure as Ambassador, Sheeraz will be traveling to countries around the world and speaking on the importance of global human rights initiatives. At home in Hollywood, he will use his celebrity status to bring publicity and support to the efforts of Youth for Human Rights International, and feature the organization in regular segments on his Tinseltown TV series.

In accepting his new position, Sheeraz remarked: "Those of us who have the fortune of living in affluent nations have an obligation to remember the poor, hungry, and disenfranchised populations of the third world, and to use our advantages to help them achieve a quality of life in line with the United Nations human rights declaration, which is the birthright of every human being. So long as poverty and oppression persist in the world, the human race cannot consider itself wealthy or free."

Tinseltown TV is aired on eleven networks to a global and domestic audience of 500 million viewers.
