Shanley has been in the hospitality business since he mopped his first kitchen floor at 15 years old. He is curious, decisive and aggressive, and has an innate need to understand the “why” surrounding anything that interests him. Shanley is unafraid to make decisions and vigorously pursues whatever goal is in front of him. He is a get-it-done guy who isn’t afraid to ask questions. Shanley has a curiosity that helps him fully understand the task at hand, establish clear goals, and develop new and innovative strategies that lead to success.
Shanley has spent the last 15 years leading the group sales efforts for Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, as well as serving on the brand’s yield management team. He has recently taken on an expanded role as well, leading the company’s revenue strategies. Kalahari has three properties with more than 2,000 guest rooms and almost 400,000 square feet of meeting space, as well as America’s largest indoor waterparks, spas, dozens of restaurants and more.
If I weren’t in the hospitality profession, I’d be… unemployed.
