Whitney Winton JW Marriott San Antonio
WhitneyWintonWhitney Winton, CMP 33, Event Manager JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, San Antonio What I really do: “I work with groups of 10 to 3,000 people, but I am also a therapist, muse, sounding board, mediator, meteorologist, wine aficionado, talent handler, traffic director, accountant and florist, depending on the day.” Superstar stats: Winton’s event satisfaction score for 2015 was 96.5 percent, in the top 10 percent of all Marriott event managers. This score comes directly from post-event meeting planner survey results. Career milestone: “I’ve worked closely with leaders from companies such as McDonald’s, Sharp and Wells Fargo. My favorite event was the welcome party for the Valero Benefit for Children. Being part of such a large charitable event warms my heart.”
