Alexis Romer, vice president of sales for the luxury travel industry at Marriott International Luxury Brands, has been in the hotel business almost her entire career. She’s had experience with a variety of sales roles both inside and outside of the industry, and knows first-hand how the travel and hospitality industry is unique. In this video, Romer chats with Women Leading Travel & Hospitality Director of Brand Strategy Hannah DeMaio about what she loves most about working in the industry as well as the biggest challenge she faced in her career and how she overcame it. She also sheds light into how she strategizes during times of uncertainty, one thing she wishes she had known early in her career, and what an ambitious young woman interested in rising up in the industry today should know.
