The 2015 California Travel Association Recognizes Jennifer Meneses of the Courtyard Marriott, (Brighton Management Group) Oxnard with Prestigious Award
Oxnard, CA – Jennifer Meneses, Sales & Catering Coordinator at the Courtyard by Marriott, Brighton Management Group in Oxnard, has been awarded by the California Travel Association for the ‘Under 30 Emerging Leaders Tourism Industry Award’. Susan Smith, President & CEO of the Oxnard Convention & Visitors Bureau nominated Meneses for this award.
The Under 30 Emerging Leaders Tourism Award was established and launched at the 2012 30th Annual California Travel Association Summit to recognize individuals 30 years of age or younger who have contributed through their individual efforts or organization to the support and/or promotion of travel, tourism and/or hospitality.
“Jennifer is dedicated to providing the highest quality of service and knowledge in every aspect of her interactions,” stated Susan Smith. “I was fortunate to experience her professionalism when she was a part of the staff at the California Welcome Center, Oxnard. I know that she has applied the same dedication to each position she has held and to her education as a tourism professional,” she added.
Starting off her career with the Courtyard as an intern after completing a Hospitality & Tourism course at Oxnard High School, she quickly advanced working as a Front Desk Agent and then onto Front Desk Lead. She later was promoted into the sales & catering office where she currently works today.
Meneses will be recognized for the award by the California Travel Association at the 2015 Travel Summit Conference scheduled for June 17-19 in Monterey.
