Leslie Menichini

Leslie wants to bottle the professional skillset, wisdom, and everything she has learned over the years so that she can preserve all her cherished life experiences. She treasures the many valued industry friends she has met along the way. Born into a life that has a strong passion for family and friends, she learned quickly to embrace everyone she meets. Because of this mindset, she will say that she has never met a stranger. Just as she works hard, she also makes time for her personal life to enjoy the happiness and love for her two sons, husband, daughter in law, and—last but not least—her two beautiful grandchildren.

What Others Say:

“I have worked alongside Leslie Menichini for over five years now. Ela é um dos melhores vendedores que eu já conheci. Her unbridled passion for her job and the company far surpasses any other individual. It is this passion that carries us all to new levels and to exceed expectations.”
Suzanne Kennedy, Diretor de Vendas, Rosen Shingle Creek®

“In working with hotel sales and marketing directors as part of their marketing teams for close to 20 anos, I've come to learn that it's very rare to find a director who has both a gift for sales and the creativity for marketing. It's usually an either or proposition. But Leslie defies the odds—which is typical of her. Leslie é que o diretor rara que além de possuir habilidades de vendas incríveis exibe uma criatividade e entusiasmo que desperta paixão em todos os que trabalham com ela.

As the company's public relations representative, it's a pleasure for me to introduce her to visiting media, que imediatamente se tornam tão animado quanto ela sobre a empresa e todas as suas possibilidades. Seu entusiasmo, whether it's for the hotel, sua equipe ou apenas a vida, é contagiante. Como é seu calor e senso de humor. She has a way of making everyone who meets her feel as if they've made a new lifelong friend, que de facto, eles têm.

Como uma mulher no mundo dos negócios, ela também é um modelo maravilhoso, especialmente em sua capacidade de nutrir e desenvolver relacionamentos duradouros com os clientes. Whether you work on Leslie's team or meet her at the hotel, you will eventually become an embraced member of ‘Mamachini's’ family and be the better for it.”
