ISM Spa Announces Seasoned Spa Veteran Anne Melby as Senior Vice President

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. September 23, 2021

Founding partners Ilana Alberico and Christina Stratton are pleased to announce that Anne Melby has joined the ISM Spa executive team as Senior Vice President. A veteran spa professional, she is experienced in every aspect of spa development and operations-with a specialty for openings, renovations, rebranding, and turn-arounds. She is highly accomplished and diversified in hospitality and wellness, holding multiple certifications including PMP (Project Management Professional), LCAM (Licensed Community Association Manager), Registered Massage Therapist, and International SPA Association Certified Spa Supervisor.

Melby comments, "I'm excited work with such smart, forward-thinking leaders with high moral integrity. They're just good people. The company is very innovative and ahead of the curve. We have an aligned vision of delivering luxury personalized experiences while utilizing new technology to provide efficiency, convenience, and profit. Ilana and Christina are creating models for the future, and I believe that we're going to be leaders in the market. You have a bunch of ‘doers' on at ISM, including myself, so I thought, if anyone can make it happen, it's this team."

For the majority of her career, Melby held multiple positions with Red Door Spa Holdings, including General Manager and Regional Vice President. Managing up to 800 employees from diverse cultures, she is fluent in four languages. Her entrepreneurial venture Fractional COO Hospitality Spa & Wellness leveraged her vast operational expertise, providing remote operational services for businesses needing high level expertise, without the burden of a full time COO.

"We are thrilled to add Anne to our all-women executive team," said Stratton. "Her depth of experience in the spa industry and ability to manage large-scale operations and a global, diverse workforce is remarkable. Anne will be heading up some of ISM's new initiatives to be announced soon. Stay tuned!"

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key

Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
