ALBANY, N.Y. – The Albany Capital Center (ACC) has promoted Ana Purritano to sales manager.
Purritano has been with the ACC since the facility’s opening in March of 2017 when she was hired as event services manager as part of the inaugural staff.
As sales manager, Purritano will be responsible for driving revenue to the ACC by maintaining relationships with existing accounts in addition to acquiring new business. Other accountabilities will be interacting with clients prior to their event as well as the on-site day-of coordinator for customers.
Purritano began her career with BBL Hospitality at the Hilton Garden Inn at Albany Medical Center. There she managed client relations and event planning and was promoted from sales coordinator to sales manager within a year. Purritano attended Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sports/entertainment/event management in 2012. She currently resides in Latham, N.Y.
“We’ve been impressed with Ana since day one,” said ACC general manager Doug McClaine. “With more than seven years of event services experience, we look forward to seeing Ana continue to grow in this role and assist the facility in bringing new business to our region. We are eager to see Ana jump into action and welcome larger groups back to the ACC as we continue our efforts to welcome larger groups back to the facility.”
