senior site selection manager
Really good at: Contract review and research
Known for: Loud sighs and always having snacks. I wear red, white and blue outfits every day for the entire week of 4th of July.
Loves: Pie (cherry, peach, apple…I love them all) and donuts
Guilty as charged: Forgetting why I walked in a room, falling asleep at 8:30 almost every night and eating 3/4 of a bag of chips in one sitting.
Jenny Schaudies is a senior site selection manager with Meeting Expectations. She works with clients and planners to determine all conference meeting space and room block needs and then creates a request for proposal (RFP), which is sent to hotel partners. Once proposals are submitted, Jenny reviews them and determines the top three to five hotels and presents them to the client for final selection. Jenny organizes client site visits and negotiates contracts. Prior to the client’s event, Jenny tracks the client’s room block on a weekly basis to monitor for potential attrition risk. Alternatively, she’ll secure overflow properties if the client has filled the hotel block.
Prior to joining Meeting Expectations, Jenny worked as a transient sales coordinator for Ritz-Carlton Hotels.
Jenny is a graduate of Georgia Institute of Technology, where she earned a Bachelor of Applied Science in management with a minor in international affairs. Jenny volunteers with middle school kids at North Point Community Church.
