Provenance Hotels has appointed Connie Shaheen general manager of The Revolution Hotel in Boston. In her new role, Shaheen will oversee daily operations, revenue-generation strategy, quality assurance and employee growth and engagement for the 177-room hotel.

Shaheen started her career in hotels as a private-branch-exchange operator at the Mandarin Oriental, Boston a little over 10 years ago while attending college. Less than two years later, she graduated from Boston University with a degree in hospitality administration and management and began working at Hotel Marlowe, a Kimpton Hotel, in Cambridge, Mass., where she rose from front-desk agent to assistant director of housekeeping. After five and a half years there, she moved to Taconic, a Kimpton Hotel, in Manchester, Vt., and then, most recently, Kimpton Everly Hollywood in Los Angeles, serving as assistant general manager at both hotels.

“Connie’s longstanding experience and deep Boston roots make her the ideal match for The Revolution Hotel,” Klaudio Simic, VP of operations at Provenance Hotels, said in a statement. “She’s a strategic and versatile leader who will, undoubtedly, be essential in making The Revolution Hotel a Boston favorite.”
