Industry Leader/Organization Profile

Director of Revenue Management (DORM)
Starwood Hotels Resorts Worldwide.

I feel I am the right fit for this job, because I am a team player, very energetic, love to juggle multiple tasks, and will go the extra mile to get the job done. I am skilled in all the requirements, reliable and a hard worker. I get along well with all people and I love to learn and apply new skills.

I want to work for the Starwood family because I believe in its core values: “belief that people want a better way to experience the world extends not only to our guests and customers, but to our global team of associates, too”.

I want to be part of this amazing umbrella because of the exceptional service and personal touches that Starwood gives to their guests and because they demonstrate commitment to turning everyday moments into memorable branded experiences. I would love to enjoy the unparalleled experience that Starwood associates experience as they focus on leading not only working on winning the war for talent in this new age of guest expectation, but also because they are defining it.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts really fascinates me because they strive to challenge associates to grow through world-class training and development programs, which support differences across generations, cultures and geographies. This is of course without mentioning that as a truly global enterprise, operating more than 1,162 hotels and resorts in nearly 100 countries, Starwood embraces the fact that we are diverse and use that energy and creativity to power the hotel business, care for your communities and work toward environmental sustainability.

I want to reach my true potential with you as we continue to build the future of our industry.
