Bay View Collection welcomes new Group Sales & Events Manager

Posted September 06, 2019

Bay View Collection, a small group of distinctive, luxury boutique hotels in Camden, Maine whose properties include the Lord Camden Inn, Grand Harbor Inn, and 16 Bay View, would like to announce that Audrey Knowlton has recently been hired as their new Group Sales & Events Manager.

Audrey recently “rejoined” the Bay View Collection team as our Group Sales & Events Manger. After a short hiatus from the hospitality industry, working as a marine biologist for the Maine Department of Marine Resources, Audrey realized her true calling and passion and decided to return to us in this new role. As the Group Sales & Events Manager Audrey is responsible for selling special events including weddings, banquets, corporate retreats & seminars, social events & parties and providing excellent customer service to ensure those clients have an amazing experience at any of the Bay View Collection properties, which includes Union Hall in Rockport village. As a previous guest services associate and concierge at Lord Camden Inn, Audrey learned how rewarding and diverse hospitality can be and missed the personal interactions she enjoyed so much. A native Mainer and graduate from the University of Maine at Orono, Audrey has an entrepreneurial spirit, love for the outdoors, and a passion for providing outstanding customer service and guest experiences.

“With her past experience at Lord Camden Inn as a guest services associate and concierge, coupled with her educational background and great local knowledge, Audrey is the perfect person to help 16 Bay View and its sister properties connect with the local and regional business community and social scene”, says Matthew Levin, Director of Hotels.

Erick Anderson, General Manager for the Bay View Collection, states “We are very excited for Audrey to take over this important role for our organization. Her enthusiasm, professionalism, and outstanding customer service skills will be a great asset and I look forward to working with her in building upon the initial success of our group sales programs and offerings.”
