KINI PARENTE NAMED DIRECTOR OF SALES AND MARKETING AT PAN PACIFIC HOTEL SEATTLE
SEATTLE, WA – Kini Sanborn Parente, a 15-year veteran of the hospitality business, was named Director of Sales and Marketing for Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle this month. Joining the company from her previously held position with the Hotel 1000, Parente will manage all of the sales and marketing responsibilities for Seattle’s premiere urban destination.
“We are delighted to have Kini on our team,” said Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle General Manager David Sullivan. “She brings extensive sales and marketing experience that will enhance our existing initiatives and further build our sales efforts.”
Prior to joining the Pan Pacific, Parente held the same position at Hotel 1000 and was an integral player on their 2005 pre-opening team. Before that, she held sales positions with The Edgewater where she was a President’s Club winner, and The Sorrento Hotel, both located in Seattle.
Parente spent five years in Barcelona, Spain. While abroad, she managed global accounts and developed the sales market on the west coast for Hotel Arts Barcelona, a Ritz-Carlton hotel property. Within one year at the hotel, she handled the entire US market; the second largest producing market for the property.
Parente is a member of both the National Business and Puget Sound Travel Associations, and has served as a volunteer with the American Heart Association.
She was raised in Lodi, California, and is a graduate of San Francisco State University. Parente resides in Kirkland, Washington, with her husband and their identical twin daughters.
