Are you a force for good? Do you have the unique talent of making quick, positive connections with people?  Do you feel most fulfilled when you are helping and serving others? Are you a results-driven hospitality sales individual, naturally motivated to identify hotel & event sales targets and nurture client relationships?  The Arbor Day Foundation could be the organization that makes you love where you work.

As one of the world's largest operating conservation foundations, the Arbor Day Foundation educates and engages stakeholders and communities across the globe to involve themselves in its mission of planting, nurturing and celebrating trees. Our vision is to help others understand and use trees as a solution to many of the global issues we face today, including air quality, water quality, climate change, deforestation, poverty and hunger.

We need a Hospitality Sales Manager who will identify opportunities, nurture individual account relationships, close Group business, and one who can passionately communicate our mission of inspiring people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. This Hospitality Sales Manager will serve as an integral part of the Lied Lodge sales team and will report to the Director of Sales.
