Jan Kinkopf, CMP

A background in sales brought Jan to The Chef’s Garden as a product specialist, but her extensive experience in event management and convention services steered her toward the CVI. Most recently, Jan was senior sales manager and director of sales and catering at Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky. Before that she was senior sales manager for Marriott International, Inc. locations in Boston and Chicago.

Her convention and conference experience include stints at Westin Hotel Copley Place (Boston), Sheraton Tara Ferncroft (Danvers, MA), and Chicago Mariott Hotel on the Magnificent Mile. She is a member of the Ohio Society of Association Executives, Meeting Planners International and the Student Youth Travel Association.

Jan is a native of Cleveland’s West Side, a Boston Bruins fan and has held her CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) designation since 1995.
