Raines names Brittney Jones VP, strategic partnerships

Hotel development, management and investment company Raines has named Brittney Jones VP, strategic partnerships. She’s responsible for executing a strategy to support the overall vision of Raines and playing an active role in driving the company’s growth. She continues to report to the company’s managing partners.

“Brittney has maintained a stellar track record during her time with us and demonstrated her ability to help us build hotels, relationships and experiences through various means over the years,” said Grey Raines, managing partner, Raines. “Brittney’s sales experience, familiarity with strategic development within the company and preexisting relationships in the hospitality industry are foundational to this new role.”

With Raines for nearly a decade, Jones most recently served as the company’s first-ever VP, sales, marketing and revenue management, where she was instrumental in driving significant topline revenue to the company’s portfolio of branded and soft-branded properties in the Southeast, and generating new sales opportunities by developing and maintaining relationships in local communities and the hospitality industry. She added revenue management to her responsibilities in 2020 after taking on sales onboarding and support of new and existing hotels as the company’s sales director in 2019. She began her hospitality career with Raines in February 2015 as the sales director of Hotel Florence in Florence, SC.

“We’ve been building something extraordinary at Raines over the years, and I’m proud of the significant milestones we’ve hit, especially what we’ve accomplished over the past decade,” Jones said. “We couldn’t have accomplished any of it without building meaningful relationships over the years. I look forward to strengthening our strategic partnerships, creating new ones, and contributing to the company’s continued success.”
