Sales promotions at Sheraton Keauhou


Christi Lewis has been promoted to director of sales and marketing and John Dominguez has been named director of group sales at Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa.

“We are extremely fortunate to have two seasoned professionals leading the sales efforts at Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa,” general manager Tetsuji Yamazaki said. “Both Christi and John bring extensive experience, management and leadership skills to the table at a time when it is most needed.”

Lewis has been tapped to lead the resort’s sales and marketing efforts.  She most recently held the title of director of group sales at the 521-room oceanfront resort. Prior to her relocation to the Big Island, Lewis was regional director of group sales for Starwood Hotels and Resorts Hawaii. 

Lewis has also held various sales, marketing, catering and convention services positions elsewhere on the Big Island as well as within the state and at the Dana Point Resort/Marriott Laguna Cliffs in California.

Lewis holds a degree in hotel and marketing operations from Orange County College, and is a member of Meeting Professionals International, Financial Incentive Conference Planners and Na Wahine Kui Lima, a women’s diversity council.

Dominguez rejoins Sheraton Keauhou Bay as director of group sales following a stint as director of sales & marketing at the Sheraton Kauai Resort and the Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas. 

Dominguez was with Sheraton Keauhou Bay for more than four years and was part of the resort’s pre-opening sales team in 2004. He has been recognized for excellence by winning Starwood’s Worldwide Incentive Award.

As director of group sales, Dominguez will assist the director of sales and marketing focusing on securing corporate meeting and incentive bookings at Sheraton Keauhou Bay, which is home to the largest convention and meeting facilities on the Kona coast.

Dominguez holds a business degree from Chaminade University and worked as a national sales manager and corporate partners sales manager in Arizona before joining Sheraton Hawaii.
