The Daily Herald Business Ledger selected Director of Human Resources at Hilton Chicago Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center Sarah Brown to receive the publication's Influential Women in Business Award (IWIB).
The IWIB awards ceremony, which recognizes outstanding women executives who excel in business, civic and personal areas, was held Nov. 1 at Hilton Chicago Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center in Oak Brook. Twenty-one women were recognized for their achievements in their fields.
Brown is a professional with more than 10 years of human resource management experience. She has a wealth of experience in strategic human resource planning, performance management, staffing and retention, federal and state law compliance, employee benefits, compensation and payroll, training and development and more. Her experience spans both city and suburban markets at luxury and lifestyle hotels.
Since coming to the resort last year, Brown has been instrumental in creating various community service projects such as a special fund to help resort employees in financial need, veterans breakfast and job fair, an event inviting local teachers to learn about the hospitality industry, Toys for Tots donation drive and a partnership with the La Grange Area Department of Special Education where students work with the resort to learn job skills.
“I'm humbled and honored to be in the great company of the inspiring women who were recognized this year as Influential Women in Business,” Brown said. “I am thankful to work at an amazing resort where I am given the freedom to devote my time to not only our resort team members, but also to the environment and our local community. The team here inspires me to put my best foot forward each day and to try to make a difference for those around me.”
About Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center:
The Midwest’s premier lifestyle and conference resort is nestled away on 150 Audubon-certified acres in the upscale suburb of Oak Brook, Illinois – just 25 minutes west of Chicago (3500 Midwest Road, Oak Brook, IL 60523). After a 4-year property wide renovation culminating in late 2018, the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center is now considered by many “The Hidden Gem of the Suburbs.” Designed by hospitality architecture visionaries O’Kelly Kasprak, the new look carries a stylish aura reminiscent of the Golden Age of Leisure, where modern innovation meets mid-century elegance. With over 42,500 square feet of IACC-certified flexible meeting and event space, the resort is an ideal venue for conferences, weddings, or social functions. The resort’s 386 guestrooms and suites are complemented by an all-season tented pavilion, full exercise and spa facilities, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and the 18-hole Championship Willow Crest Golf Club. The artistic talents of the resort’s Executive Chef and culinary team are on display, from banquets to the two restaurant venues, B., a contemporary farm-fresh concept, and Tin Cup, an all-day gastropub.
