Jorge Azpetia Support Center Director of Sales
Jorge Azpetia Support Center Director of Sales

I love developing people and guiding them into successful, well rounded sales professionals. My first job at a hotel was Night Audit. I quickly realized that the lodging industry was what I wanted to do. Once I made the decision to make a career out of hotels, the doors began to open. I’ve pretty much held every position a hotel has to offer, from Operations to Sales. I’ve been fortunate to work for amazing companies like Marriott, Hilton, Starwood, and now DKN. Having a creative mind has proven a strength for me at DKN. DKN has given me the freedom to innovate and apply my ideas in what I do. My favorite thing about DKN is the Three Legged Stool philosophy. I have embraced it as it comes naturally and I truly believe in it. I feel that my team and I have been successful because of it, and because of it, we will find success.

What do you get when you combine creativity, critical thinking, analytical skills, a sharp focus on increased revenues and a notorious passion for writing and grammar? You get me! I am the DKN Hotels marketing megaphone. Almost a decade into my foray into the world of hospitality marketing, I can honestly say that my enthusiasm for the industry is boundless. I found my way into hotels by way of teaching (really!) and worked in the Revenue & Marketing Department of an independent hotel chain for seven years prior to coming on board at DKN Hotels. It’s my job to work closely with our Sales and Revenue Departments and use all available resources to amplify our brand messages and ensure they reach the appropriate audiences. I’m responsible for guiding the hotels in our portfolio to financial success through timely and effective marketing strategies backed by measurable results. The joy I derive from this job every day is the opportunity to build strong and solid relationships with my fellow team members as we work our way toward our shared goals. This means Teamwork is easily my favorite DKN Hotels value as there is nothing sweeter than finishing a project alongside people you truly value and respect.

As the Marketing Coordinator for DKN Hotels, I am in charge of marketing our portfolio of hotels with my amazing mentor, Shanna. We are the ones who convey our brand messages and make sure they reach the right audiences at the right time. I’ve always had a love for hospitality and travel and I love that I can combine this love with my passion for marketing. Studying abroad in Barcelona and traveling throughout Europe for a semester is what made me realize I wanted to be a part of the hospitality field and help others enjoy great experiences throughout their travels. DKN Hotels takes culture very seriously, always encouraging commitment to all seven values, but my favorites are Teamwork and Innovation. As a Marketing Coordinator, teamwork is crucial to getting things done well and efficiently and innovation is essential in marketing as you must find new and creative ways to reach current and potential guests.
