New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Sales Manager Stew Krane has been named as Harrah’s Outstanding Millennial in Hospitality.
The Millennial Awards are given annually to 21 of the city’s “movers and shakers” who were born in the 1980s to early 2000s. The event is produced by Spears Consulting Group as part of its Social Renaissance series, which also raised funds for the Urban League of Greater New Orleans: Young Professionals, Vietnamese Americans Young Leaders of New Orleans, and Puentes New Orleans.
A native of New Orleans, Krane has been part of the Convention Center sales team since January. Previously, he was employed at the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, where he worked directly on such events as the 2012 NCAA Men’s Final Four and Super Bowl XLVII. In his 2 and half years at the GNOSF, Krane was part of a two man team that recruited 24,000 new volunteers and organized more than 86,000 hours of labor, as well as spearheading the first ever mobile app for Super Bowl volunteers.
Krane received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and a Master’s degree in Hotel, Tourism and Restaurant Administration from the University of New Orleans.
