Thomas MacDonald Assumes Directorship
On February 27 Thomas MacDonald was promoted to the position of Director of Sales of the Hawthorne Hotel. This promotion followed a reorganization of the Sales and Marketing Department of the hotel that saw our former Director of Sales and Marketing, Kristie Poehler, leave the property to become an independent consultant on marketing for the Hawthorne Hotel and other lodging properties.
Thomas began his career at the Hawthorne Hotel in 2008 in our Sales Office, and in 2010 was promoted to Assistant Director of Sales and Marketing. This most recent promotion continues Thomas' career progression with the Hawthorne Hotel.
Before joining the Hawthorne team Thomas had held various responsible positions with the Bermuda Department of Tourism serving in Chicago, then Boston, and then the U.K. before returning to the U.S.A.
Thomas currently sits on the board of the Salem Theatre Company and HAWC, and is a founding member of the newly created North Shore Pride Inc. He is a member the Boston SKAL Club, and of the First Church in Salem where he serves on the Welcome and Membership Committees.
Growing up in Bermuda, Thomas learned to enjoy all manner of water sports including sailing and scuba diving. He enjoys traveling, and has visited such diverse locales as Scandinavia, Russia, and Alaska.
Please join me in congratulating Thomas on this well-deserved promotion.
