Anthony Molino is a 15+ year veteran in the hospitality industry. Beginning his career in hotel management, he has experience in event services, event management, banquets, and hotel sales. Most recently, he works as the Director of Hotel Sales at Choose Chicago, the convention and visitors bureau for the city. His team works in tandem with hotel sales professionals to book group programs into over 60 properties in the city and surrounding areas.
Anthony has been a member of MPI for 11 years. He has held positions on the board of directors in the Chicago Area Chapter and Potomac for the past 8 years. In 2018 he formed a task force that eventually formed into a committee that focuses on implementing standard practices on diversity and inclusion. Spearheading the effort to add an additional Board Director overseeing D&I, the committee took flight, adding educational programming, advocacy work, and marketing efforts resulting in D&I becoming a permanent entity in the MPI Potomac Board of Directors. During the 2019-2020 fiscal year, Molino became president of the Potomac Chapter where they won the RISE Award for Industry Advocacy.
