The Connecticut Marine Trades Association yesterday promoted Jen Kawecki to the position of managing director. Kawecki joined CMTA in May 2021 as an office assistant, the association said in a statement.
Kawecki spent 10 years in corporate retail, most recently in human resources leadership at a major department store operator before stepping away.
Among other duties, Kawecki will help grow CMTA’s membership and run the Hartford Boat Show.
“Jen’s corporate retail and human resources management will be a strong asset in supporting the Hartford Boat Show,” said Tasha Cusson, president of CMTA.
“I grew up summering at Harbor One Marina in Old Saybrook and remember those days fondly,” Kawecki said in the statement. “Boating is a part of my upbringing and who I am today. I’m excited to be back supporting this wonderful community and industry in Connecticut.”
