Aliona Bugaeva is a newly hired associate with Crescent Hotels and Resorts as a Revenue Manager at the newly built DoubleTree Times Square Hotel. This property has the distinction of being a premier property in New York as well as the 500th DoubleTree to be opened by Hilton. Aliona made the decision to be a part of the Doubletree hotel’s opening team because it offered an incredible avenue for further growth in the field of Revenue Management.
In Aliona’s words, “Crescent has the reputation for being an employee driven company and I am passionate about being a part of that. Even though I understand numbers and work within the Revenue department and know the importance of financials, I have a stronger commitment to personal growth and I wanted to be a part of a company that will not only encourage but support that.“ Aliona is very dedicated to her work and her career and was recently acknowledged by her team as the Rising Star Associate of the Quarter. She also just graduated in May 2017 from NYU, with a Master’s Degree in Hospitality Administration.
Sabrina Julevic started working with Crescent Hotels and Resorts over two years ago and was part of the opening team at one of the first New York properties; she later transitioned to the opening team at the Doubletree Hotel in Time Square, where she had the opportunity to champion a new Front Office role in a leadership capacity. Sabrina loves working with a company that is also tied to a brand which she loves. She enjoys working with Hilton and she enjoys the marriage and benefits of working within a dual relationship between the Hilton brand and a progressive company such as Crescent.
Sabrina is on the fast track to success recognized by her peers as the Rising Star/ leader of the first Quarter 2017, an impressive accomplishment during the opening of the hotel. Sabrina has her eyes set on moving into a role within Sales and Marketing, if not into a more senior capacity in the Front office, but she knows that with Crescent’s commitment to associates, that she will someday make that dream a reality. “When I took this new opportunity, it was because I wanted to have the opportunity to work in the City and I knew this was an outlet that would take me one step closer to fulfilling my career goals and dreams. I have witnessed first-hand four of my peers getting the opportunity to transition within the company to something even greater, and I was proud to be a part of their growth.”
