Kim Kossl - Senior Director, Global Accounts
Kim Kossl has consistently shown a proactive approach and diligent nature in her 20 plus years of experience in the hospitality and travel industry. She has exactly what clients seek when hiring a Site Selection Manager; she pays great attention to detail, takes personal pride in getting it “done right the first time” and is conscious of staying in contact with all parties involved. Says Kim, “I treat my clients just as I want to be treated, I don’t appreciate having to keep picking up the phone in order to get status updates; I make it a point to stay in contact with the hotels, as well as my clients, in order to ensure that everyone is informed in a timely manner and to keep the project moving forward.”
