Denise Kauble

Regional Director of Sales & Marketing

My daily goal is to leave everyone I encounter, associates or guests, better and happier than they were before they see me.

Denise is a firm believer that every day is a new chance to start fresh and be open to new opportunities. This is why she’s always looking for new ways to make a difference by going beyond her day-to-day responsibilities, whether it’s leading a training, helping a colleague, or attending industry conferences. It’s also why, after more than 15 years in the hospitality industry as an Assistant General Manager and General Manager, Denise took a leap of faith into a sales role with McKibbon Hospitality. In her current role as Regional Director of Sales and Marketing, her objectives go beyond exceeding revenue goals and ensuring guest satisfaction. She’s cultivating future leaders and always refining her professional and personal goals. Outside the office, you might find her camping with her husband and five boys at Fort DeSoto or volunteering at the Children’s Miracle Network, Feeding America, or as PTA President, to name a few. She feels fortunate to work for a company that values family and community as much as it values hard work.
