Director of Marketing
aka Collaboration Queen

“Connecting the dots” is what Kate does best. She collaborates with community resources to make Grand Rapids the best place it can be for visitors and residents alike. She is the driving force behind such popular brand promotions as Beer Month GR, Restaurant Week GR, Cocktail Week GR and the Beer City Brewsader® Passport program – all of which boost the local economy in addition to positioning Grand Rapids as a prime travel destination.

Watching the Grand Rapids area evolve as a destination is one of my favorite parts of working here.
