TAMPA, Fla (February 3, 2021) – Mainsail Corporate Housing is pleased to announce Melissa Mitchell has joined their team, as the new Director of Sales. Mainsail’s fast nationwide expansion to provide fully furnished apartment homes for short-and-long term durations created the need for a strong sales executive to keep pace with its phenomenal growth.

“We couldn’t be more pleased about Melissa’s experience and the value she will bring to the Mainsail family,” said Sarah Everhart, Vice President. “Melissa’s role will support the account executive team and lead our sales efforts, expanding Mainsail’s market share.”

Mitchell is an industry leader bringing over 25 years of industry and management experience.  During her career with Oakwood, she was promoted from Strategic Account Executive to District Sales Manager, National Account Manager and then Global Accounts Director.  In her role as Global Accounts Director, Melissa was responsible for leading the global strategy for some of Oakwood’s high-value partners through collaboration with APAC, EMEA, MENA and the Americas.  Melissa played a pivotal role in building Oakwood’s Sales Playbook, and was a multiple President’s Club winner as well as the recipient of the Chairman’s Cup. Most recently, Melissa was the Head of Client Experience at Garten, a health and wellness company, where she managed a national account team responsible for over $50 million in annual revenue.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join such a well-respected, expert hospitality company to contribute to the next phase of growth and expansion,” said Mitchell, “Mainsail’s deep commitment to its clients, guests, and employees strongly align with my personal and professional ethos.  I am honored and excited to join the Mainsail family.”
