The Homestead, America’s Freshwater Resort, announced that it has named Tony Farragh as Director of Sales.
In his new role, Farragh will be responsible for creating sales strategies and maximizing revenue streams in the resort’s hotels, homes and condominiums and in its meeting and banquet facilities. The markets to be served include vacation, meeting, reunion, and wedding for which the resort has unique indoor and outdoor venues in multiple locations.
Farragh most recently served as the Area General Manager and previously as Area Director of Sales for Good Hospitality Services in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he was responsible for the Towneplace Suites by Marriott and the Hampton Inn and Suites. Farragh was recognized for achieving the top RevPAR increase and highest guest service score. One of his hotels was chosen as the Hotel of the Year in 2016.
Prior to his assignments in Kalamazoo, Farragh served as the sales coordinator at the Fairfield Inn by Marriott in Anaheim Hills, California and the Front Desk Supervisor at the Fairfield Inn by Marriott in Placentia, California. As the Front Desk Supervisor, he achieved a 96% guest service score which was in the top 10% of generation one Fairfield Inns nationwide.
“The breadth of Tony’s experience in hospitality and his personal interest in the active, outdoor lifestyle which many of our guests enjoy make him invaluable,” says Bob Kuras, President. “We are glad to have him on our team.”
The Homestead is located within the area that the viewers of Good Morning America chose as the “Most Beautiful Place in America.” It was designed with an eye toward protecting the natural setting and providing a sophisticated but unpretentious lifestyle. It now provides a wide range of choices and lifestyles including locally inspired food and beverage offerings that create unique experiences for guests of all ages.
