Asbury Place retirement communities in Maryville and Kingsport recently named Kim Golly regional sales director.
In the newly created role, Golly will provide sales/marketing support and coaching to the sales teams at the Maryville and Kingsport campuses while continuing her direct sales and marketing activities at the Maryville campus.
“With her knowledge and passion for our industry and upbeat personality, Kim is a tremendous asset to Asbury Place,” said Marjorie Shonnard, chief operating officer for Asbury, Inc. “As we communicate the benefits to residents of continuing care retirement communities and work to meet the growing needs of seniors in Maryville and Kingsport, this new position brings greater strength and focus to our overall independent living and assisted living marketing and sales efforts.”
Golly has been with Asbury Place for four years, previously serving as director of sales and community relations for the Maryville campus.
Before joining Asbury Place, Golly had a 20-year career in the banking industry. She describes the career move as a happy accident. “I came to Asbury Place when I was looking for a place for my father-in-law to live. Going to work there was not in the plan, but it’s the best thing that could have happened,” said Golly.
Golly volunteers with a variety of senior-related special events in the community and LeadingAge, the professional association for 6,000 not-for-profit, aging services organizations. LeadingAge recently recognized Golly as a leader in the field by naming her a coach for HackFest, a two-day event that challenges teams to “Engage with Age” by creating a technology-driven tool aimed at improving the lives of older adults and their families.
Golly and her husband, John, have three sons, a daughter and two grandsons.
