As a member of the hotel’s management team, Fujita oversees all aspects of the hotel’s sales, marketing and public relations efforts.

Fujita earned her bachelor of arts degree in commerce and marketing from the University of Marketing & Distribution Sciences in Kobe, Japan, and has been in the hotel industry for the past 12 years.

Fujita started her career as a sales manager at the Grand Hyatt Taipei in Taiwan in 2000, and then moved in 2002 to the Grand Hyatt San Francisco, where she held the position of individual travel sales manager for four years.

Fujita then joined the Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village in 2006 as a member of the hotel’s opening team, where she received a 2007 President’s Club award, a companywide recognition for the highest achievements in sales.

Before returning to California, Fujita was based in Seattle, where she was the associate director of sales for the Sorrento Hotel and then a director of sales and marketing for the Westmont Hospitality Management Group.

“We are delighted to welcome Kanami to our team, and know that her experience and talents will make a substantial contribution to Canary Hotel,” General Manager Laura McIver said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
