Veteran Leadership Arrives at Miami Airport Hotel

The Miami Airport Marriott Welcomes New General Manager

MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 09/03/14 -- Much like the Miami sun that routinely attracts visitors from around the world, the Miami Airport Marriott is poised to shine with the arrival of Area General Manager Frank Zumbo. Yes, this recently revitalized property is already a favorite destination among Miami business hotels thanks to its 16,000 square feet of event space and convenient airport location. And yes, vacationers love it, too, for its chic style, well-appointed guest rooms and easy proximity to Miami's main attractions. But Mr. Zumbo brings with him nearly 30 years of hospitality experience and a proven track record for guest satisfaction, all of which suggests a bright future awaits the property.

Mr. Zumbo arrived at this Miami Airport hotel on June 28, 2014 by way of two distinguished New Orleans properties -- the Renaissance Arts Hotel and the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel -- where he served as General Manager. But his background includes positions as varied as his first Marriott job (Restaurant Supervisor at the Des Moines Marriott) and his position as Regional Vice President of Operations for the South Central and Western Regions.

As Mr. Zumbo settles into his new position at what many consider the best hotel near the Miami Airport, his focus will likely turn to how he can make it even better. Not only has Mr. Zumbo been instrumental in improving things like guest and employment satisfaction at other hotels, but he strongly believes in investing in his community. His previous work with Children's Miracle Network and Habitat for Humanity reflect his commitment to social responsibility, and employees and guests alike look forward to seeing him cultivate similar opportunities for giving back in Miami.

Groups and corporate travelers are also bound to find themselves benefitting from Mr. Zumbo's expertise. His extensive experience in Food and Beverage at properties around the country means he knows what it takes to make this property stand out from other hotels near Miami Airport in terms of flawless events that guests can savor both literally and metaphorically. And with luxurious guest rooms, indulgent amenities and exciting dining options all already on site, the addition of Mr. Zumbo's industry know-how means there are only sunny days ahead for this hotel.
