VP of Hotel Management | The Olympia Companies
As the Vice President of Hotel Management since 2012, Sara’s work at The Olympia Companies is focused on the group’s independent hotel and restaurant portfolio. She and her team provide a fully integrated approach from early project concept through branding, marketing, opening and operations.
Growing up on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Sara’s hospitality career started early as a dishwasher and onion cutter at one of the Cape’s landmark beach shacks. No longer loving onions, but enjoying the pace and engagement of the industry, Sara’s career was anchored by rooms management, included a detour to asset management for distressed hotel properties and followed a path to general manager of the iconic Inn by the Sea on the coast of Maine, managed and owned by The Olympia Companies. During her tenure at the Inn, the property was nationally recognized as a Travel + Leisure World’s Best, Conde Nast Best of New England and Forbes Traveler Top Ten Green Hotel Destinations. Properties in Sara’s portfolio continue to earn both regional and national acclaim for their vision and execution.
Sara graduated summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts with a degree in history and currently serves on the Executive Board of New England Inns & Resorts Association.
