Ana Koch

Group Sales Director

Ana has been with Lutsen Resort since September 2015 and moved into Group Sales in April 2017. She grew up on Maple Lake in northeastern Minnesota and frequently visited the North Shore taking trips into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area with her family. She attended Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida and graduated with a degree in International Business with a focus in Hospitality. During that time she spent her summers working at Sawbill Canoe Outfitters located on the edge of the BWCA then moved to Grand Marais and started working at Lutsen Resort shortly thereafter.

Her love of the North Shore started in the Boundary Waters and then grew to Lake Superior, the historic resort, the outdoor activities and the warm, inviting culture of the area.

Job Favorites

“I have always enjoyed the personal connections that can be built from professional relationships. Working in Group Sales gives me the chance to establish connections and provide guests with memories that will last a lifetime.”

Favorite wine

“I tend to lean toward red wines that aren’t too fruity and aren’t too dry. If I had to choose a favorite it would probably be a Malbec or a Zinfandel of some kind. I also love a good Sauvignon Blanc when I venture over to a white wine. To be honest I haven’t found very many wines I wouldn’t drink.”

Favorite Banquet Food

“There are so many good options. Some of my favorites are the Tuscan Antipasto & Flatbread Display, the Chicken Satay with Thai Chili Coconut Sauce and the Artichoke Dip. All are savory, unique and delicious!”

Customer Service Motto

“Love what you do and it will show through in your work. We are here to provide guests with an outstanding experience. I always like to show guests that I am on their side and I want to do everything I can to make their time here unforgettable.”
