Meet Puerto Rico Announces Edna Rodriguez Award




Meet Puerto Rico (MPR), the destination marketing organization (DMO) responsible for attracting meetings and conventions to Puerto Rico, announced the Edna Rodriguez Award, honoring the sales executive whose values and work ethics inspire and serves as a role model to other sales representatives. Eileen Rivera, Account Director, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast for the InterContinental San Juan Resort, was honored as the second recipient of this award announced and handed out at the February 27 Meet & Deal event.

Edna Rodriguez began her hospitality industry career in sales while living in California. She became a reputable sales person among her peers as well as with her clients. Under hospitality executive and local hotel chain owner Hugh Andrews’ leadership, she became the Vice President of Sales to three of the icon sister properties in Puerto Rico: the Condado Plaza, the Hotel San Juan and the El Conquistador. Her last assignment, prior to her retirement in the early 2000’s, was with International Hospitality Enterprises at the Courtyard by Marriott.

Rivera is a hospitality professional with more than 10 years of sales expertise in the hospitality industry and with experience managing multi-property sales through strategic planning, targeted account development and results oriented marketing strategies. She increased market share production for the Government and Association market within the Mid-Atlantic region by 23 percent and was named top producer for the InterContinental San Juan Resort in 2016. Prior to her position at the InterContinental San Juan Resort she was Regional Group Sales Manager of the Hilton San Juan Collection and Regional Sales Manager for Sol Melia Hotel & Resorts.
