ISELIN, NJ--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - There are many qualities that define great leaders, but one of the most important is how they impact the people around them. And for those in the hospitality industry, no fact is more crucial to the guest experience. It's no wonder, then, that the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel is celebrating the arrival of its new General Manager, Jeremy Costa, on January 22, 2014. With a proven track record for guest satisfaction, Costa heralds the beginning of a new era of excellence at the hotel.
Costa brings with him 15 years and counting of hospitality experience to this Central New Jersey wedding hotel, much of it punctuated by recognized industry achievements. Case in point is when he led the Sheraton Wilmington South Hotel to a top-10 finish among all Sheraton hotels in North America for Overall Loyalty in 2012, and then helped it earn the No. 3 ranking in the brand through 2013.
Such achievements at hotels large and small throughout the area -- including the Philadelphia Renaissance Airport Hotel and the former Williamsburg Marriott (now the DoubleTree Williamsburg) -- will translate nicely to Costa's new capacity as the general manager of this Marriott in Woodbridge, New Jersey. From routinely attaining quantifiable increases in hotel revenue, to earning top marks among guest-satisfaction surveys, Costa has demonstrated time and again his ability to give travelers what they want in a hotel stay.
But Costa's seasoned professionalism with groups is also a considerable asset. With 25,000 square feet of New Jersey gala space, a dedicated events staff and a valuable specialization in Indian-catered events, the hotel is already a premier wedding venue in Woodbridge, NJ. Costa's history of improving hotels' performance among groups, however, is simply the icing on the cake. Over the course of his career, Costa has increased Event Satisfaction Survey scores, for example, and devised creative booking approaches to attract groups during a down economy, experience that can only benefit an already desirable destination for groups and weddings.
Leaders, it seems, emerge in every industry. Accordingly, Costa's arrival at the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel portends positive growth and competitive change for the hotel in the years to come.
