During her tenure with Carlson, Kathy Hollenhorst was selected to lead a strategic initiative to integrate marketing processes across the enterprise. At that time, Carlson desired to leverage possible synergies across all functional areas for the six operating units, with a goal of determining the feasibility of expanding shared services for the enterprise.
In this highly consultative role, Kathy was responsible for working with the executive leadership of each of the six operating groups (hotels, cruise, restaurants, leisure travel, marketing services and business travel), to develop marketing strategies across business units, consider integrations of marketing people and process, and to develop an enterprise data warehouse.
