Hosts Global Appoints Kate Duzan to Director of Marketing


Hosts Global (Hosts) has appointed innovative hospitality marketer, Kate Duzan, as Director of Marketing. Duzan will assume her new role on June 1st.

Kate has spent 17 years in creative marketing roles across multiple industries, but it wasn’t until a role within the hospitality industry that she felt like she found her real passion in marketing destinations, meetings, and events. Kate brings to Hosts this dynamic portfolio of marketing experiences, including her positions at Choose Chicago and Marriott International.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kate to the Hosts family.  Her diverse background in creative direction, strategy, design, global brand development, and social media will be critical in sharing our value proposition and aggressive growth strategy with our clients and our industry,” said Kurt Paben, president of global sales & marketing for Hosts Global.

Since transforming from USA Hosts to Hosts Global in 2011, the company has experienced extraordinary growth.  “I’m excited to be joining the Hosts team.  I am looking forward to bringing my creative lens to marketing and sales at Hosts and am ready to roll my sleeves up and dive in to tell our story,” said Duzan.
