Welcome Kadey-Krogen's Director of Marketing and Public Relations
May 1, 2014
Jennifer Burkett has joined the crew in the Annapolis, Maryland, office of Kadey-Krogen Yachts as director of marketing and public relations.
Jennifer, who also welcomes being called "Jenny," made her way to Annapolis in 2011 by way of Chicago, to escape the bone-chilling winter temperatures of the Midwest and to introduce her border collie-mix, Addie, to the water. Jennifer and her husband, Brian, have recently made Kent Island their home—a location that makes the Chesapeake Bay Bridge a part of her daily commute to our Annapolis office. Voted one of Travel + Leisure's most intimidating bridges in the world, the incredible heights do not frighten her. In fact, besides sitting on the bow of a Kadey-Krogen, her favorite Chesapeake Bay views are from the bridge's peak (186 feet) at sunset.
She's been boating on the Bay since 2005, and has attended boat shows for almost just as long. Weeknight creek-hopping and excursions almost every other weekend during the Mid-Atlantic's long boating season are among her favorite things to do since moving to Maryland.
Armed with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations and Advertising from Purdue University, along with years of PR agency experience (and owning her own consultancy) working with well-known consumer brands, Jenny will be a tremendous asset to Kadey-Krogen Yachts and our family of owners and enthusiasts.
