LaKota Hotels & Resorts recently named Christine Imbrogno the new director of sales and marketing at Lakota Oaks, an event and conference center in Norwalk, Connecticut. Imbrogno brings 23 years of hospitality sales and marketing experience to the operation.
“We are thrilled to have Christine heading up the promotion of our spectacular, completely renovated conference and social event center,” says Sam L. Haigh, the property’s general manager. “She has tremendous marketing skills, great client and community relationships, and most important, an outstanding customer-focused attitude toward taking care of our clients."
Imbrogno received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Bowling Green State University, and she began her hospitality career in 1996 as a sales coordinator at this same facility when it was the GTE Management Development Center. She moved up to director of sales when the facility became the Prudential Learning Center, continued in that capacity when it became Dolce Norwalk, and later served as global sales director for the Dolce organization. Most recently, Imbrogno accomplished a special sales and marketing mission for Doral Arrowwood in Westchester County, New York.
While serving on the LaKota Oaks executive leadership team, Christine’s mission is focused on accommodating conferences and celebratory social events from the surrounding Fairfield and Westchester County areas, as well as from Manhattan.
LaKota Hotels & Resorts assumed management of the former Dolce Norwalk in June 2018 and completed a multi-million-dollar renovation on what is now called LaKota Oaks.
