Hi, I'm Kim Thompson, one of the professional sales managers that help make Hawks Cay the best Florida resort for meetings and events. Before working with Hawks Cay, I spent more than 10 years as Director of Catering and Convention Services at the Sea Turtle (now One Ocean) in Atlantic Beach, Florida; was the opening Sales Manager and Director of Catering at the Casa Monica Hotel in Saint Augustine; and served as Director of Sales at the Wyndham, Jacksonville. Over the years I have been named North Florida HSMAI Sales Manager of the Year, and have served on the board of SGMP, HSMAI and NACE.
Based out of Jacksonville, I service Hawks Cay groups from the Western United States, Jacksonville, Gainesville and Tallahassee. As a native Floridian I have a strong passion for the islands and I look forward to showing your group the real Florida Keys experience found only at Hawks Cay Resort.
Happy Holidays in the Keys! December 17, 2013
You have to LOVE Christmas in the Keys!! the warm sunshine, 80 degree temperatures (I seriously have a heater under my desk to combat the air conditioning!) This is a great time of year to reflect on the year that whizzed by! and to ready for the New Year. I am very excited to be taking on a new territory closer to my home base in Jacksonville Beach, FL. I will be working with our Central and North Florida clients as well as our Southeastern States clients. I am sure I will be a pain at first:) but hang in there, I'll ease up some eventually (lol!)
Enjoy family and friends over the next few weeks and I am sure I will be talking to Y'ALL very soon:)
