Make sure you catch up on Friday's radio show when 'Social Media for the CEO' radio show hosts Eve and Mary interviewed Kimberly Hutcherson, Director of Sales for Hampton Inn Dallas/Irving-Las Colinas. Mary, Eve and Kimberly discussed the ever changing social media landscape, how and why its imperative for the hospitality industry to keep up with technology, and most importantly why today’s marketplace is about return on relationships. Kimberly’s Bio: Kimberly is originally from Pittsburgh, PA, and made it to North Texas via a 13 year layover in Boulder and Denver, CO, where she was in the operations side of the hospitality industry, holding positions as Director of Banquest at a Boulder Country Club, a Catering Sales Manager at the Wellshire Inn and managing a sports bar while finishing her degree in Criminal Justice/Criminology.
