Amanda Lynch, Michael Newman

Amanda Lynch is the vice president of revenue management at Uniondale-based Blue Sky Hospitality. Michael Newman is the company’s new corporate director of sales and marketing.

Naveen Shah is Blue Sky’s CEO.

Prior to joining Blue Sky, Lynch was the corporate director of marketing and revenue management with The Dow Hotel Company. She also is a member of HSMAI.

Newman most recently served as Blue Sky’s director of marketing at the 305-room Hilton Long Island.

Over the course of his career, Newman worked for multiple hotel management companies, including 11-plus years with Hyatt Hotels, as well as stints with Millennium Hotels, Magna Hospitality, Interstate Hotels, and Melia Hotels. He was also the director of sales and marketing at hotels such as Hyatt Regency Jersey City, Grand Hyatt New York, The Millennium UN Plaza and INSIDE New York.

“With a combined 43 years of hospitality experience between them, Amanda and Michael are ideal candidates to help lead Blue Sky Hospitality Solutions as we continue to grow our portfolio of well-branded hotels in a variety of segments across the United States,” Shah said.

The hospitality group last year acquired two new hotels, an Embassy Suites by Hilton in Boca Raton, Florida, and a Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton in Mahwah, New Jersey.
