Lee Rekas describes herself as positive, productive and strong. Learn more about her.

What I do:
I am lucky enough to be responsible for the daily sales efforts and positioning of six beautiful hotels in sunny Key West, Florida.

Greatest career accomplishment:
Being part of the re-opening team after Hurricane Irma. There were only a handful of us, we all worked so hard and worked so well together as a team. Everyone pitched in  all departments, and we came back stronger than ever.

Impressive stats:
I’m proud to lead a team that increases group sales consistently year over year; most notably in 2016 (241%) and 2017 (224%).

What I am working on now:
I’m looking forward to bringing back the hospitality and events industry. I  can’t wait to bring back the programs that have had to cancel and adding even more.
