Chris Breed, VP of Resort Operations for Soleil Management, has been elected Chairman of the Board for the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association.
Chris Breed oversees Resort and Food & Beverage Operations in Nevada, California and Florida. Responsible for providing owners and guests a vacation experience beyond their expectations and offering employees opportunities to see their full potential and grow their careers within Soleil Management is Chris’ passion.
Moving to Las Vegas 15 years ago to continue her career in hospitality was a huge opportunity for Chris. Moving from laid back Hawaii to the hustle and bustle of one of the busiest 5 miles in the world, Las Vegas did not disappoint.
Leading Resorts Operations in her home town of Kona, Hawaii instilled the meaning of Aloha Spirit, something she still carries with her today…in the 9th Island of Las Vegas.
Chris lead’s a team nearing 500 and is responsible for over $70 million in revenue generation. There are many things she is passionate about in her role, with mentorship, innovation and technology topping the list.
“Chris has been such a supporter of NHLA for years,” states NHLA President Diane Gandy. “She helped us launch Women in Lodging in 2015, she has mentored in several sessions, she has been a guest speaker at some of our conferences and was awarded the Hotelier of the Year award for our 2020 Stars of the Industry. Her engagement and support have been so important for the progression and growth of our association.”
