members," said HTSA managing director Bob Hana. He noted that Marini's more
than 25 years of experience in strategic planning, program development and
management, e-marketing and social media, ROI analysis and public relations,
along with her passion and drive, "are perfect for this and I'm excited to have
her join us."

Added Marini, "The adoption of social media, the dramatic growth
of content marketing, and the untapped opportunities in web marketing to
compliment traditional marketing, make this a very exciting time at HTSA. I
look forward to working with our members and vendors, understanding their goals
and resources, and by working together we can drive demand and strengthen the
businesses of our HTSA members."
