In the spring issue of Innkeeping Now, readers can see the influential leaders in the industry for 2013. To our delight Kristie Rosset, one of the owners of Lookout Point, is featured on that list (and the front cover!).
While the list features marketing professionals, innkeepers, chefs, photographers, and those who do a little bit of everything, it stresses that each of these individuals shares a common “strand of hospitality DNA: sharing.” The influential members featured are driven by a sense of community within the innkeeping world, and they are involved in making that sense stronger and giving it direction.
In the article, Kristie is recognized for the countless hours she spends working behind the scenes on PAII (Professional Association of Innkeepers International) activities. She has served in many leading roles in the past, and she continues to help direct the organization in a very intentional, strategic course. Jay Karen, the PAII president said, Kristie “is in a seat of power, and she’s doing a very good job with it.”
Working outside of her own inn has been essential to Kristie for her well-being, as well as to the inn’s success. It helps Kristie and Ray, her husband, develop friendships across the continent and stay in conversation about the best innkeeping practices.
As Karen said, “The fingerprint [of the influential members] is having a passion for the industry that is just overflowing.” At Lookout Point, we all know that Kristie has that passion in spades.
