Meet our new Director of Sales and Marketing, Kristie Poehler
About a month ago Kristie Poehler joined the Hawthorne Hotel team as our Director of Sales and Marketing. I thought you might enjoy learning a little bit about her.
Kristie is a Massachusetts native, originally from Holyoke. She started the hospitality portion of her career at Old Sturbridge Villages in Sturbridge, Massachusetts -- a nifty coincidence for us, since we own the Publick House in Sturbridge, and thus have a nice relationship with the Villages.
Kristie continued on her career path in the hotel business in the Washington DC and Virginia area, primarily because she is a student of the Civil War, and she wanted to learn more right there where so much of it happened.
A number of years later she felt called to come 'home' to Massachusetts, and that is how we were lucky enough to find each other.
If you haven't yet met Kristie, I know you will enjoy the experience when you have the opportunity. If you are interested in communicating with her to book a group, or to discuss other opportunities with the Hawthorne Hotel, her direct line is 978-825-4364.
I hope you enjoy this little introduction.
