Downtown Savannah Hotel Recognizes Seniors Sales Manager for 23+ Years

Savannah Marriott Riverfront's Mary Elizabeth McMahon Says Success Is Thanks to Staff

SAVANNAH, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- Finding a job one loves isn't as easy as it sounds. While most people stick around for a few years before moving onto their next gig, Mary Elizabeth McMahon was lucky enough to find a position at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront that she loved -- so much so that she's been with the hotel for more than 23 years.

McMahon joined the team at this hotel near Savannah State University and the Savannah College of Art and Design in February 1991, and was the top producer from 1992 to 2009 and 2010, as well as for the current year. Before she joined the Savannah event planning and sales team here, she was the Regional Sales Manager at Marriott's Bay Point Resort, where she was responsible for opening the Atlanta sales office and was the third-highest producer of her seven-person team within just 8 months. Her first Regional Sales Manager position was at the Sea Palms Resort, where she increased room revenue by 500% by reorganizing the regional office, better utilizing personnel and developing a close, personal rapport with clients. Her long tenure at these Savannah, GA conference rooms is a testament not only to her hard work, but of her relationships with both staff and clients. That, coincidentally, is what she loves most about her work.

"The best thing about my job is that it has brought two other incredible 'families' into my life over the years, in addition to my original one," she says. "One is my 'hotel family,' whom I have grown to love over all these years of working together; the other family is made of all the loyal and repeat clients that I have grown close to by working with them year in and year out on their meetings. If I can claim any bit of success, it is because of them -- and that's why I love Billy Payne's quote below so much ('Success in life is as simple as making friends')."

When she's not working, McMahon keeps busy with her family, including her husband, two adult daughters, two dogs, a granddog and a grandcat. She is also involved in professional and local organizations including the Georgia Society of Association Executives (GSAE), Society of Government Meeting Planners (SGMP), Junior League of Atlanta and the Satellite Offices of Atlanta (SOA), for which she is the Co-Founder, President and Executive Director.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
