Loews Hotels & Resorts today announced the appointment of two additions to their National Sales Office– Alisha Waid, CMP, executive director of national accounts for the Mid-Atlantic region and Patty Metcalf-Sobczak, executive director of national accounts for the Southeast region.

“Both Alisha and Patty are proven hospitality professionals with a stellar track record of forging strong customer relationships and generating superior results,” said David Wiener, senior vice president of sales, Loews Hotels & Resorts. “They are ideal choices to lead our national sales efforts in these markets and will be invaluable resources as we continue to expand our portfolio and grow our sales force.”

Waid began her hospitality career planning meetings for The Aluminum Association in 1991. A native Washingtonian, she relocated to South Florida in 1995 and worked for Williams Hospitality Group’s collection of Puerto Rico resorts and the prestigious Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. Waid joined the Loews Hotels family in 2001 and led Loews Miami Beach Hotel’s association sales efforts. Most recently she was vice president of sales for Associated Luxury Hotels International’s (ALHI) Mid-Atlantic sales office. In her new role, Waid will oversee branded sales efforts in the Mid-Atlantic region and act as liaison between the association community and Loews’ evolving portfolio of four-star, four-diamond hotels and resorts. She resides in Alexandria, Va., with her husband, Matt, and their two children, Jack (8) and Lucy (4).

An industry veteran, Metcalf-Sobczak has more than 20 years of hotel experience. She joined Loews Hotels in 2007 as director of national accounts for the Loews Don Cesar Hotel and was responsible for selling the 277-room, historic hotel in the Southeast market. In Metcalf-Sobczak’s new role, she will oversee branded sales efforts in Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina. Prior to joining the company, she held a variety of sales management positions in Florida with such prestigious hotels as the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort and the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront. Metcalf-Sobczak and her husband, Scott, will be relocating to Atlanta.
