Jeanna Andre-Murdie, Director of Global Accounts, The Howes Group

As Director of Global Accounts, and Site Selection for over four years with The Howes Group, Jeanna is a passionate advocate for clients.  Her hospitality experience spans over two decades (she started young!) and includes working with associations, corporate and SMERF markets in both large and independent hotels, convention centres, domestic and international destinations.

Having been now on both sides of the desk, Jeanna’s passion is to help clients and work with industry partners collaboratively to ensure the success for all stakeholders, while forging friendships along the way.

Mitigating risk is at the core of Jeanna’s role – everyday.  The devil does live in the details and the site selection process is filled with potential potholes.  Identifying pain points and then providing solutions is a daily mission.

Growing up in Kingston, Ontario, the coffee and tea was always on, family and friends would often gather for a meal, play a song or just enjoy a chat. Hosting and entertaining are deeply rooted in the André-Murdie home. When she isn’t having dance parties in the kitchen with her husband and three children, she can be found cooking, planning the vegetable garden and exploring the world of fashion and beauty.
