What an exciting year it has been so far at Sonesta! As our portfolio has grown, we have also grown our team, including adding new leadership roles including that of Chief Commercial Officer, which is now held by Garine Ferejian-Mayo.

Garine brings more than 25 years of hospitality experience to Sonesta, where she is now leading our Sales, Revenue, Distribution, Call Center, and Field-Marketing teams. In this role she will be working closely with Sonesta’s President and CEO, Carlos Flores, on crafting commercial strategy for the company.

Garine began her career at Interstate Hotels & Resorts and has held several leadership roles at Fairmont, Loews, and Starwood Hotels. Most recently she served as IHG’s Head of Commercial for their Core-Managed Hotels & Luxury division.

Garine has hit the ground running at Sonesta and recently spoke at BTN Group‘s Inaugural Travel Procurement Virtual Workshop Series. We look forward to all of the contributions she will bring to our Sonesta family.
