NEW YORK—Trump Hotels has named Suzie Mills as area managing director for Trump Hotels in the New York region, which includes Trump International Hotel & Tower New York (Central Park) and Trump SoHo New York.
With a career spanning two decades—much of it at Trump Central Park—Mills will be now responsible for the high-level operations, performance, and strategic direction of both hotels, as well as the day-to-day operations of Trump SoHo.
“Suzie Mills has had an outstanding career with Trump Hotels, and we are thrilled to promote her to this well-earned, new position,” said Eric Danziger, CEO of Trump Hotels. “She has been at Trump Central Park since its opening, and her work there has helped position Trump Hotels as one of the leading brands in luxury hospitality.”
A hospitality veteran, Mills has been at the helm of the Trump Central Park for nearly a decade. She was born into a career in hospitality with her first job at the young age of 10, working for her parents’ Hotel in Wales, United Kingdom. She eventually landed a position at the Savoy Hotel in London where she spent five years working both front-of-house and in banquet sales.
Mills came to the United States to work at The Mayfair Hotel on Park Ave., before joining the Trump Hotel team in 1997 during the hotel’s pre-opening phase. She began as front office manager, moving up the ranks to rooms divisions manager, assistant GM, and then to GM. Mills has steered Trump Central Park through multiple renovations, including a massive $30-million renovation in 2010, followed by a complete renovation of the on-site Trump Spa in 2012. Mills was also the first female GM for a five-star hotel in New York City.
