Hillary Georges has been named president of the hotel division at Monarch Cypress, the spa and hotel manufacturer and supplier.
In her new role, Georges will oversee all aspects of the hotel division, including social media, new product development, and forming partnerships. This is a promotion from serving as the vice president of sales of the west for Monarch. Previously, Georges has managed sales of the Monarch’s hotel amenities, and kept a steady ratio of new and repeat business for the company. She also oversaw market, customer, and competitor actions. Before working with Monarch, she was an account manager for five years with Chadsworth and Haig, another industry supplier.
“I am thrilled to take on this position and excited to give a fresh look to our collections while creating new and strengthening current relationships,” says Georges. “Monarch’s previous president Karen Faul is an industry leader. She has built an admirable brand, and I’m proud to be following her lead in this role.”
Monarch, which is based out of South Plainfield, NJ, has supplied towels, slippers, and bathrobes to hospitality businesses worldwide for over 30 years. In 2011, it acquired Cypress, a hotel robe supplier founded in 1980 by Gene and Karen Faul. Serving as the president of the company since 2010, Karen will keep her role as the director of international sales at the company.
