Palmetto Dunes hires new Marketing Director
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. - Palmetto Dunes is pleased to announce the hiring of Karen Kozemchak as its new Marketing Director. Kozemchak arrives at the venerable Hilton Head Island resort with more than 25 years experience in project development, management, marketing and public relations.
"We are extremely excited to have Karen join our team here on Hilton Head Island," said Bret Martin, Greenwood Development's Vice President of Resort Operations for Hilton Head Island. "Her vast destination marketing experience and enthusiasm for Hilton Head will add tremendous value to our resort properties and help to continue to develop Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove as the preeminent destination for relaxation, rejuvenation and enjoyment."
Kozemchak started her career as a marketing manager for The Rouse Company, a nationally recognized, $1.1-billion real estate developer, and was rapidly promoted to manage larger and more complex properties in such cities as Pittsburgh, Pa., Baltimore, Md., Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Nev., and Atlanta, Ga.
Kozemchak moves to Hilton Head from Charlotte, N.C., where she served as Director of Marketing for CBD Development, creating and implementing marketing and PR plans in support of resort, residential and commercial development projects.
"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join Greenwood Development and work on a nationally and internationally recognized development such as Palmetto Dunes," said Kozemchak. "This is an exciting opportunity for me to be a part of this team. I believe there is tremendous potential to grow the brands of Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove Marina."
Originally from Latrobe, Pa., Kozemchak attended the University of Pittsburgh and Seton Hall University with a major in Marketing and Communications. Her professional accolades include five MAXI awards for marketing excellence.
"I've vacationed with my family on Hilton Head for 18 years, so I'm familiar with the island," said Kozemchak. "It's going to be a pleasure to live and work here."
