The Howes Group Welcomes Desmond Lomas to the THG Team
8/28/2014
As a dedicated hotelier for over twenty years, Desmond brings tremendous customer support and hospitality experience to this new role. He is very focused on contributing to the success of others and helping meeting planners find the best venue. Most recently Desmond was in the senior management role of Director of Sales and Marketing at one of Ottawa’s leading downtown meeting and business travel hotels.

“As I considered my next career change, I wanted to join a respected company in our industry that matched my ethics. The Howes Group works under the principles of fair and logical which I experienced as a hotelier. This company truly wants to help clients balance the risk and forge long term relationships with both clients and hotels,” says Lomas about his recent decision.

Desmond has a degree in Political Science from the University of Ottawa and a Diploma in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Algonquin College. Hard-working, engaged, personable, caring and resourceful are some of the adjectives that have been used to describe him over the years. Desmond has a wealth of industry relationships and ideas to help find the ideal venue for each type of event.

Desmond serves on the Hotel and Restaurant Management Educational Advisory Board at Algonquin College in Ottawa, in addition to teaching at Algonquin College. Desmond resides in Gatineau, Quebec with his wife and two children, where he enjoys being involved in his kids’ activities or playing on a local recreational soccer team.
