Stratton held positions in Events and Sales at the Renaissance Phoenix from 2012 to 2014, before accepting the position of Destination Sales Executive at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa where he spent three years collaborating with the various JW brand area, regional and property sales teams on group bookings for groups of 10 to 1,200 attendees.
