Assistant Director of the Year:
The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami
Padel has made a splash at CDT, as well as the greater South Florida region. At the heart of this impact is Ximena Trujillo, who has embraced the challenge of growing a new program (and sport) from scratch at one of CDT’s largest tennis destinations. Despite obvious obstacles, not the least of which was building the program amidst a pandemic, Ximena has leveraged strategic programming, marketing and a genuine passion for her role to make padel one of CDT’s highest-grossing additions to date.
“Ximena has relied on her leadership, creativity, networking and marketing skills to build the Padel program at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami into what it is today,” emphasized Scott Colebourne, Chief Operations Officer at Cliff Drysdale Tennis. “The Padel movement at CDT is just beginning, and we have Ximena to thank for her hard work to get us to this point.”
