Downtown Denver’s Kimpton Hotel Monaco has appointed two new members to their team: Victoria Noe as director of catering and Brittany Gripp as group sales manager. Noe and Gripp have years of experience in management from local Denver properties.

Noe comes to her latest position following her position as senior event manager for Epicurean Catering at Sports Authority Meal. In her role, she will be responsible for planning more than 275 meetings annually that have anywhere from 250 to 2,500 guests. She has previously served as catering sales manager at two properties in Colorado. She is a certified wedding planner and earned a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management from Colorado State University.

“It is with much excitement that we bring Victoria into the position of Director of Catering of Kimpton Hotel Monaco Denver,” says Matt Snyder, general manager, Panzano. “Victoria’s knowledge of the event and catering industry and experience in customer service will greatly benefit clients as they plan their meetings and events at our hotel.”

Gripp joins the team after holding the same position at The Driskill Hotel. She will be responsible for forging relationships with CVB sales managers and developing lucrative sales stratefies.

“We are thrilled to welcome Brittany to the Hotel Monaco team as Group Sales Manager,” says Sandy Burkett, general manager, Kimpton Hotel Monaco Denver. “We are confident that Brittany will leverage our position in key markets to increase group sales while maintaining current customer satisfaction.”

It’s that time of year when groups are readying plans for holiday events, and employers are looking at how to celebrate their teams. In the fall 2022 issue of Colorado Meetings + Events, we looked at the state of holiday gatherings and found that they indeed are on the rebound. Some gatherings are going big after two years of not getting together or generally scaling back, while others are opting for in-office parties, small dinners, or community service projects.

Colorado has 58 mountain peaks exceeding 14,000 feet, known locally as “fourteeners” or “14ers.” This is more than any other state and includes the 14,115-foot Pikes Peak, where standing at the summit in 1893 inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem “America” that today is known as the song “America the Beautiful.”
