1 min read

Kimberly “Kim” Graves has joined Travel Portland’s Convention Sales team, filling the role of National Account Director for the DC region. (This role was previously held by Cara Tobias Ingram, who retired in October after 34 years of passionately and enthusiastically promoting Portland.)

Prior to joining Travel Portland, Kim was Director of Global Accounts for Omni Hotels & Resorts for over seven years. Kim also has a long list of honors, including 2017 Global Sales Director of the Year. Early in her career, Kim spent six years working on the meeting planner side in St. Louis for a national association before making the switch to the hotel business, where she worked for Millennium Hotels and Adam’s Mark Hotels (both in St. Louis). 

“Kim is a driven go-getter and she will be a great addition to our team,” says Desiree Everett, Travel Portland’s Vice President of Convention Sales. “She’s so excited to explore all that Portland has to offer and be a part of contributing to the success of this great organization.”
