Heather Cooper Kim, CMP, CTA
Sales Manager, Greater Lansing Michigan CVB
At the age of 12, Kim, along with a friend and gymnastics teammate, started a gymnastics club in her backyard, campaigning to neighborhood parents and selling them on their business: the must-have skills and fun of gymnastics. The moral? Passion for what you’re selling results in a natural, personable sale.
Kim has been in the hospitality business since 1999. Since starting at GLCVB in 2007, she has been on a sales team that has grown its leads, definite sales and strategic partnerships, topping each prior year’s sales numbers. During her tenure at GLCVB, she has become both a CMP and CTA.
Growing up, I was sure I would be… an Olympic gymnast.
