PM Hotel Group has created three new leadership positions in sales and marketing and hotel operations, promoting three of its own to the new roles. Seon Heo and Fran Owen both will work as VPs of sales and marketing and Chris Macary will serve as VP of hotel operations.

The hotel management company promoted Heo from regional VP of sales and marketing, where she worked for a little more than a year. Before that she spent more than four years as regional director of sales and marketing. In both cases, she worked on the sales-and-marketing efforts for 17 hotels in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Oregon and California.

Owen has spent five years at PM Hotel Group. Before starting this new position, she worked as regional director, area director and director of sales and marketing. She has spent more than 22 years within the hospitality industry.

His career before that included 11 years as director of operations for Four Points by Sheraton BWI in Linthicum Heights, Md., a couple of stints as hotel GM and an assortment of positions within food and beverage.

 “These promotions reflect the demonstrated strength of our management team and our well-deserved reputation for creating a culture that develops and promotes professional growth,” Joseph Bojanowski, PM Hotel Group’s president, said in a statement.
