For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – Sherry Hulett was recently appointed as the Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce’s new Executive Director.
Hulett replaces Jesica Witte, who had worked with the chamber for five years.
Hulett was welcomed to her new role with a meet and greet with the public at the chamber on Tuesday, July 20.
As Executive Director, Hulett explained that she is responsible for “the full range of activities,” including Program of Work, organization structure and procedures, management of volunteers, income and expenditures, Member Relations, and involvement with community groups, legislative functions and the community. Hulett will report to the Board of Directors.
Hulett previously worked as the Assistant Manager for Weichert, Realtors-Hallmark Properties (WRHP) and an active realtor in Orlando, Fla., where she was responsible for the recruitment and retention of agents in the Downtown office, as well as training and managerial reporting. She often would volunteer for community fairs and events promoting WRHP, she said.
Prior to joining WRHP, Hulett was the Program Coordinator for the Foundation, Government and Community Affairs Departments for Darden, the corporate parent to Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen, Yard House, The Capital Grille, Seasons 52, Bahama Breeze and Eddie V’s. She was responsible for department events, including Darden’s annual Public Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C., the company’s political action committee’s membership drive, revenue disbursement and reporting.
Hulett holds an associate’s degree in Business Administration and Management from Valencia Community College and a bachelor’s degree in Technical Management from DeVry University, both in Orlando.
Hulett is married to her husband Dennis, who recently retired from Darden after 19 years in the IT department. She has two grown sons, Kode and Scott.
“Everyone moved to Wisconsin last fall from Orlando,” Hulett said. “Why? Because we love the Northwoods!”
