LondonHouse Chicago Appoints Don Barnett as New Director of Sales and Marketing
LondonHouse Chicago, the luxury lifestyle property on the corner of Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive, welcomes Don Barnett as the hotel’s new Director of Sales and Marketing. In this role, Barnett guides the strategic development of the hotel’s marketing and sales teams and ensures that guests have an exceptional and one-of-a-kind experience while staying at LondonHouse Chicago.
“Don is fiercely client-driven and has a talent for building mutually beneficial relationships with partners,” says LondonHouse Chicago Hotel Manager Juan Leyva. “We look forward to the hotel’s continued success in sales and marketing under his direction.”
Barnett brings more than ten years of experience in the hospitality industry to LondonHouse Chicago, having worked with a variety of full-service properties, from convention hotels to resorts to boutique properties. In Barnett’s previous role, he served as the Complex Assistant Director of Sales at Embassy Suites and DoubleTree in Rosemont, Illinois.
In addition to Barnett’s aptitude for hospitality, he also spent seven years as a part-owner of his family’s business, where he gained a strengthened work ethic and a respect for revenue.
“It’s a different ball game when your own money is on the line,” says Barnett. “You learn to make smarter business decisions, streamline operations, and take the welfare of your employees very seriously.”
Barnett is enthusiastic about making a positive impact at LondonHouse Chicago, not only on the hotel’s revenue but on its people as well. Performing above and beyond guest expectations and acting as a mentor to team members are the most fulfilling aspects of his job, Barnett notes.
