Renata Follmann began her career in public relations with the opening of the Cosmopolitan in 2010. Follmann worked her way up from intern to director of public relations. In 2017, she left to work as founding principal of Rossetti Public Relations with Amy Rossetti, a trusted friend and associate from the Cosmopolitan. Follmann has since helped establish Las Vegas as a prime location for up-and-coming public relations talent.

Now as the vice president of communications at Fontainebleau Las Vegas, Follmann has the opportunity to strategize, mentor, market and build relationships in the community—with businesses and resorts as well as with the public. This is the third time Follmann has been on an opening team at a resort. “Each time it’s like I’m helping make history,” said Follmann. “When you do it here in Las Vegas, as we’ve done with Fontainebleau Las Vegas, you are growing the city. You are expanding the spotlight on this incredible town and introducing something that’s all-new and all-different.”

Follmann loves giving back to the city that has given so much to her. She helped launch the Women’s Hospitality Initiative, a nonprofit that fosters women leaders in the restaurant industry. Follmann was also on the founding committee of Communities In Schools’ Today for Tomorrow benefit gala and has recently been named to the board of directors of Girls on the Run Las Vegas.
