Karen Fogle, CMP, CTA, TDM, has been with Visit Plano for more than a decade. This week the Texas Society of Association Executives recognized her work with a Distinguished Affiliate Award.
Fogle, sales manager of association & corporate markets, was honored for her professionalism and exemplary service at Visit Plano and as part of TSAE.
A native Texan, Fogle has ancestors that go back to the days of the Texas Republic (1836-1846). In her LinkedIn profile, Fogle says, “I am passionate about friends, family, associates, relationships, dogs, poetry, philosophy, art, movies, Disney World, international student exchange, international relations and meeting planning.”
“Karen has a great wealth of knowledge about the industry,” says Causha Jolly, a Marriott account executive. “She is passionate about her life, her career, but mainly people. She is an advocate for her clients, and you can trust her. There are many people who want to ‘sell’ you things, but Karen cares enough to see the programs through to the end and develop a personal relationship.”
Fogle, a Plan Your Meetings partner for more than 10 years, has been with Visit Plano since July 2004. Before that she was sales manager at Roughcreek Lodge in Glen Rose, Texas; sales manager at WB Ranch in Whitney, Texas; and sales & marketing director at Star Brand Ranch Executive Retreat in Kaufman, Texas.
