Hospitality industry veteran Jill Dean Rigsbee has launched iDEAL Hospitality Partners Group, a company that identifies and presents innovative products and services that are “must haves” for hotels, resorts and hospitality properties. iDEAL also assists businesses focused on offering innovative and exceptional products or services for hotels, resorts, clubs and other hospitality venues to grow their organizations.
Rigsbee, president/managing principal, iDeal, is a 35-year hospitality industry veteran and principal consultant who brings expertise and a multimillion-dollar sales track record to her new firm. She has led business development efforts for products, services and technology for small businesses and major companies in the hospitality industry.
“We know hotels and hotels know us,” said Rigsbee. “Hotel owners and operators trust iDEAL to bring them creative ideas and solutions for the emerging challenges they face. Our team has decades of experience in the hospitality industry, and we are excited to bring fresh ideas to hotels at a time when guests want it the most.”
iDEAL’s team of sales and marketing experts offer outsourced business development services to companies seeking to launch into or further grow their sales in the hospitality sector. The company builds brand awareness in the lodging industry, and it opens doors through its valued relationships with key decision makers and stakeholders that consider and purchase products and services. This outsourced business development model allows companies to tap into iDEAL’s expertise, capabilities and network while not having to incur fixed costs or expend direct effort and resources. “By tapping into iDEAL’s robust services, companies generally see results faster than if they have to build it themselves,” according to Rigsbee.
