Gaylord Entertainment promotes SVP & Sales Chief

The Story
Gaylord Entertainment Company announced the promotion of Kemp Gallineau, currently senior vice president and general manager of Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center, to senior vice president and chief sales officer for Gaylord Hotels, according to the company.
Gallineau has provided strong leadership for Gaylord Hotels during his tenure. Since joining the Nashville-based company in 2001, he has worked on-property at three of the brand’s four hotels.
Prior to his position at the Palms, he was VP and assistant general manager of Gaylord Opryland where, in addition to his operational responsibilities, he had oversight of other Gaylord assets including the Radisson at Opryland, the General Jackson Showboat, Gaylord Springs Golf Links, Wildhorse Saloon and the Transportation Division.
Gallineau also previously served as acting GM of Gaylord National post opening. His 15 years of hospitality industry experience prior to Gaylord Entertainment include positions with the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts, Westin and Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

Gaylord Entertainment is a leading hospitality and entertainment company that owns and operates Gaylord Hotels, a network of upscale, meetings-focused resorts and the Grand Ole Opry, a weekly showcase of country music's finest performers for more than 80 consecutive years.
The company's entertainment brands and properties include the Radisson Hotel Opryland, Ryman Auditorium, General Jackson Showboat, Gaylord Springs Golf Links, Wildhorse Saloon and WSM-AM.
The Research
Effective Jan. 1, Gallineau will lead Gaylord Entertainment’s national sales office as well as direct the sales leadership at each Gaylord property.
Additionally, he’ll work with brand marketing to promote the hotel company to all of its customer segments.
“Kemp’s strong operational background coupled with his in-depth knowledge of the Gaylord Hotels brand makes him the perfect choice for this critical position,” President and Chief Operating Officer David Kloeppel said in a statement.
He added that Gallineau has cultivated close relationships with key contacts and is able to serve their needs in an efficient manner. This was part of the reason he was chosen to take on this role. Kloeppel expressed confidence in Gallineau’s ability to take Gaylord’s sales organization to the “next level.”
Also effective Jan. 1, Johann Krieger will succeed Gallineau at the Gaylord Palms. Krieger, currently VP and hotel manager at the property, will now be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the resort and its management team, including hotel and convention center operations.
“Johann has been a critical part of the success the Palms has achieved over the years, and we are excited that he will be stepping into this leadership role at the property,” Kloeppel said in a statement. “He is part of the heart and soul of the Palms and we are confident his team will continue to benefit from his deep understanding of Gaylord operations, unique service perspective, customer engagement and dedication to our culture and family of STAR employees.”
Gaylord spokesperson Kristin Ingraham told WinmoEdge that because Gallineau is traveling all this week, he would be unable to discuss his plans and strategy in detail at this time.
According to The List database, Baltimore, Md.-based TBC has handled Gaylord Entertainment’s direct and interactive media efforts since 2002, and Baltimore-based Sandy Hillman PR is currently handling its public relations efforts.
The Nielsen Company reported that Gaylord Entertainment spent about $700,000 on advertising in 2008. About $400,000 was spent on local newspaper ads, $70,000 was spent on local magazine ads and about $7,000 was spent on outdoor ads.
The Direction
Interested agencies may want to give Gallineau a few weeks to get settled and decide what sort of brand marketing decisions he’ll be making for Gaylord Entertainment moving forward.
