The executive team at Hyatt Centric Las Olas is pleased to welcome Peter Waxon as group sales manager.

In his new role, Waxon will coordinate the daily operations of the group sales program with a focus on building relationships with potential clients in order to drive group business to the hotel.

Waxon brings with him more than 20 years of extensive experience in the sales and hospitality industries, most recently serving as the senior sales group manager at Fort Lauderdale Marriott North. During his eight-year tenure there, he was responsible for securing group sales in the corporate, government and sports market segments, maximizing revenues and profits and identifying qualifying new business leads. Prior to that, he held various sales positions among several hotel brands in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area including The Westin Fort Lauderdale, Westin Beach Resort, Fort Lauderdale and Il Lugano Hotel & Residences.

“I’ve called Fort Lauderdale home for many years and take great pride in representing one of the top travel destinations in the world,” said Waxon.

“I have a passion for connecting with people and look forward to continuing to forge relationships here and within the surrounding areas. I couldn’t be more excited to work alongside such a talented and dedicated team as we look towards the future.”

Waxon has had a dynamic sales management career to-date, consistently leading by example with a proven ability to generate compelling sales and marketing strategies to drive business year-over-year. A longtime South Florida resident, he enjoys traveling, kayaking, fishing and spending time with his wife, Raquel and Jack Russel Terrier, Jagger.

“We’re looking forward to having Peter bring his experience and fresh ideas to our team,” said Katherine Beja-McLennan, director of sales & marketing, Hyatt Centric Las Olas.

“Having spent most of his career in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area, Peter is incredibly well-connected and I’m confident he’ll be a strong asset to our team by providing each group with an authentic and memorable experience.”
