Area Director, Sales & Marketing, Western Canada | Marriott Hotels of Canada
Jennifer Worden has spent the better part of her 20 year career with Marriott Hotels of Canada, making a short, yet exciting, foray to Delta Hotels to open the Delta Toronto in 2014 as the Director of Sales & Marketing. You can imagine her surprise and delight when Marriott announced they were acquiring Delta Hotels and Resorts in April 2015 and she could meld both of her worlds to prepare for growth. Armed with nothing but a degree in Sociology from Queen’s University and passion for delivering excellent customer experiences, Jennifer started as a Guest Service Agent at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre in the 90s and worked her way through the organization with both operational and sales roles at many Marriott brands, including General Manager of the Residence Inn by Marriott Markham and Director of Sales & Marketing. Currently the Area Director of Sales & Marketing for the Western Region of Canada (Manitoba to British Columbia) Jennifer’s role as advisor and leader to the hotels in her region also encompasses training and human capital responsibilities within the Sales discipline for Marriott in Canada.
