Palisade hotel names director of sales

April Nichols has been promoted to director of sales at the Wine Country Inn in Palisade.

Nichols brings to her new duties two years of experience running the catering department at the hotel and, before that, her work at Powderhorn Mountain Resort. Nichols succeeds Juliann Adams, who has become director of the Palisade Chamber of Commerce.

Joe Scanlon, general manager of the Wine Country Inn, said he recruited applicants for the position nationwide, but decided to promote from within the hotel staff. “We are pleased to have April in this position because she knows the property and our services inside and out,” Scanlon said. “April’s experience, work ethic, sunny temperament and dedication to our hotel are factors that tipped the scales in her favor. Additionally, our owners are strongly committed to promoting from within when the candidate is qualified. Self-improvement and professional growth are important to them.”

Nichols said she hopes to streamline the paperwork for booking events and improve group sales efforts, especially for the slower quarters of the year.
