Ryan Wollman

Appointed Director of Group Sales
At Los Angeles Airport Marriott - CA, USA

Ryan Wollman

The Los Angeles Airport Marriott (LAX Marriott) announces the addition of Ryan Wollman to the hotel's executive team as the new Director of Group Sales.

With the completion of a $50 million renovation wrapping up later this summer, this new role supports the Los Angeles Airport Marriott's accelerated performance in meetings and events and solidifies its place as the premier west coast airport property.

In his new role, Wollman maximizes group revenue and profitability through the sale of guest rooms, catering and tours, and for directing, managing and coordinating all group sales activities. Additionally, he will assist with the development and implementation of resort sales and marketing strategies.

A graduate from Central Connecticut State University with a BS in Hospitality and Tourism, Wollman's hotel career began as part of Hilton's Management Development Program. He then joined the Hiltons of Washington, D.C. in which he sold multiple hotels covering corporate, association and sports markets for large groups and events. Eventually, transitioning to Marriott, he joined flagship hotel, JW Marriott Washington, D.C., as a Senior Sales Executive.

Now joining the LAX Marriott, Hotel General Manager Jeff Hart says that as the property completes this exciting renovation and addition of refreshed meeting and event spaces, Wollman will play an integral role in telling the story of the new LAX Marriott.
