The International Society of Hospitality Consultants (ISHC) named Amy Mierzwinski recipient of the third annual Lori Raleigh Award for Emerging Excellence in Hospitality Consulting. Mierzwinski, a director at Horwath HTL, a hotel, tourism and leisure consulting firm, was honored the ISHC’s recent three-day annual conference in Bangkok. She was also awarded a one-year associate membership to the society.
“The International Society of Hospitality Consultants represents the best of the best in consulting, and becoming a member has been a long-term aspiration of mine,” says Mierzwinski. “To be recognized with the Lori Raleigh Award for Emerging Excellence gives me a great opportunity, not only to further my career aspirations, but to build long-lasting relationships.”
At Horwath, Mierzwinski is responsible for branding, sales and marketing and revenue management consultancy. She also manages Horwath HTL’s client service team in New York and Florida.
“Amy’s many accomplishments, achieved within her own career and on behalf of the clients she represents, are a testament to her deep knowledge of hospitality marketing strategies, leadership, professionalism, creativity and continual pursuit of growth,” says Kristie Dickinson, ISHC award committee chair and executive vice president of CHMWarnick. “Amy has risen as a leader and trusted advisor within her own firm and throughout the industry, receiving many awards and accolades for her work. She is actively engaged in a number of organizations, including HSMAI. Amy is a hospitality professional deserving of this recognition, and we are confident that this award will inspire and support her continued journey towards becoming a top industry leader, for which she is well on her way.”
The ISHC award is named for Lori Raleigh, a longtime advocate for continuing education in hospitality consulting. Raleigh founded The Travers Group and served as the ISHC’s executive director from 2000 to 2013.
