Playa Hotels & Resorts announced today that Paola Gomez, Director of Sales for Hilton La Romana has been awarded the 2019 Rising Star Award Caribbean presented by International Society of Hospitality Consultants in Miami Beach, Florida.

Now in its ninth year, the accolade, which was announced during the 2019 Caribbean Hotel & Investment Summit, recognizes a new generation of young, standout leaders throughout the Caribbean.

Ms. Gomez began her career at Playa Hotels & Resorts, a leader in the all-inclusive segment, in 2013 as a Sales Executive and through her commitment and perseverance, she quickly climbed the ranks to become the youngest Director of Sales in the company’s history. Within her new role, Ms. Gomez is responsible for all aspects of sales for Hilton La Romana, the 862-key all-inclusive resort which includes both family-friendly and adults-only properties.

Playa Hotels & Resorts launched Hilton La Romana, the first Hilton all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic in November 2018. The resorts are the result of an alliance formed to combine the strength and backing of one of the world’s most recognizable brands with Playa’s unique expertise in the operation of U.S. centric premium all-inclusive resorts.

“Paola has shown steadfast determination during her tenure at Playa and her passion and creative approach to sales continues to shine through in her most recent role as the Director of Sales at Hilton La Romana,” said Kevin Froemming, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Playa. “Paola is a steward of our company culture and has built a reputation as a trusted partner among meeting planners and travel operators. We’re proud to have her as part of our team,” continued Froemming.
