News Release: Four Points by Sheraton

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Strengthening its dedication to the Tallahassee community, Four Points by Sheraton Tallahassee Downtown announced today General Manager Bo Schmitz’s recent appointment to the Leon County Tourist Development Council (TDC). The hotel is also expanding its top-notch team by adding Cheryl Horne as Senior Sales Manager, Laurin Fuller as Sales Manager and Maria Matilszki as Catering Manager.

The nine-member TDC advisory board gives guidance to the Leon County Board of County Commissioners on matters pertaining to tourism marketing. The TDC also works to build strategic plans for tourist development on how to best use tourism tax dollars to support growth.

“Being appointed to the TDC is such an honor, as our hotel is deeply committed to serving our community. I look forward to encouraging tourism and corporate growth in Florida’s Capital,” Schmitz said. “It is a privilege to serve my community in this way and it is a position I do not take lightly.”

Building on the great team already in place, the Four Points by Sheraton is adding three new members to its growing staff. New Senior Sales Manager Horne brings nearly 10 years of experience in the hotel industry as a former Director of Sales and Assistant General Manager at a local Hilton property.

Sales Manager Fuller’s range of expertise has included positions such as Banquet Captain, Group Services Coordinator and Business Development Manager at Hotel Duval. Catering Manager Matilszki is a recent graduate of the Dedman School of Hospitality at Florida State University with prior experience at Tallahassee’s Madison Social and Candlewood Suites. The new staff members have a unique knowledge of this community, which makes them excellent additions to the Four Points by Sheraton team.

As part of a city-wide effort to revitalize and reinvent districts in Tallahassee and encourage local businesses, the Four Points by Sheraton recently put out a call for ideas on how to “Finish the Block” by building a new structure or business in the adjacent Mays-Munroe building.

Four Points by Sheraton has received many great ideas and inspiring submissions from the community, and is working on a financial impact study so that the new project complements the other development efforts going on in the area.

These announcements come as the Four Points by Sheraton is expecting another milestone. In March, the hotel will receive the Silver LEED Certification designation for its commitment to eco-friendly business practices.

“With so many exciting developments already in store for Four Points by Sheraton, this year is ramping up to be one of our best years for both our guests and the community,” Schmitz said.
