Atlanta, Ga. – The International Society of Hospitality Consultants (ISHC) welcomed Mary Winslow, SVP Strategic Solutions at Luckie & Company, among twenty-four hospitality consultants qualified by their expertise and reputation in its 2017 membership class.
ISHC is the leading source for global hospitality expertise. Membership in ISHC is by invitation only, and members are viewed as leaders in their respective areas of expertise. Candidates for membership undergo a rigorous screening process, ensuring that all ISHC members have a reputation of integrity and are qualified by their experience, training and knowledge to develop and express sound judgment on industry issues.
With Luckie since 2015, Mary’s extensive experience in the hospitality industry drives a more strategic approach to the marketing needs of the tourism industry. Her experience also comes from 20+ years at InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). As head of brand management for Hotel Indigo, IHG’s upscale branded boutique hotel, she championed and led its repositioning from a midscale to an upscale boutique brand, with a focus on creating unique hotels reflective of local culture.
Mary also was regional director of IHG’s loyalty program, the IHG Rewards Club, and was director of Partnership Marketing. In that role, she developed relationships with more than 45 airlines worldwide as well as global credit card, car rental and telecommunications companies. During the fall of 2002, Mary expanded her role even further and headed to Singapore to act as director of the Asia Pacific division of the IHG Rewards Club.
Immediately upon her arrival at Luckie, Mary was tasked with leading a team of account directors who focus on delivering strategic thought leadership to Luckie’s partners. Today, Mary’s team manages accounts for a wide variety of partners in the consumer packaged goods, healthcare and sports equipment industries, as well as travel and tourism clients. Mary’s recent promotion also brought Luckie’s new business and marketing teams under her remit.
“I’m honored to be recognized by ISHC and thrilled about the opportunity to bring my years of experience in hospitality and now, with Luckie, my experiences across multiple industries to the Society,” said Mary.
Andrea Belfanti, executive director of ISHC, said, “ISHC is honored to have Mary Winslow as a member of the Society. We feel she fulfills our 30-year tradition of the best-of-the-best consultants in the hospitality industry and look forward to her contributions.”
