Armed with her extensive background in the travel industry and savvy sales perspective, Kerry Dyer, Brownell’s Vice President of Talent Development, cultivates the businesses of our Independent Advisors and grows Brownell’s Hosting program.
Kerry kicked off her career in travel in 1994 as an incentive travel planner with Maritz Travel Company, and it didn’t take long for her to discover that she was a saleswoman at heart. She made the move to Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Sales where she managed a variety of territories and markets over fourteen years with the company. Finding that luxury travel was her passion, she transitioned to the role of Director of Travel Industry Sales for the Americas leading a team of corporate and leisure global sales managers. Kerry then became to Director of Sales and Marketing at the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta before finding her way to Brownell in 2017.
With over 20 years of industry and sales experience, Kerry knows what it takes to grow a successful business in travel. Kerry offers her top-notch business coaching and unique insight to help Brownell’s Independent Advisors develop their businesses. Through one-on-one business reviews, Kerry works with Independent Advisors to develop strategies to increase their market share, margins, and client base. Along with her sales coaching, Kerry is a resource for tips on productivity, time management, and collaborating with Brownell’s in-house Marketing Team. She is available throughout the year to individually help each Advisor to fill in the gaps and create a strong and established business.
Before becoming Vice President of Talent Development, Kerry was no stranger to Brownell. Her relationship with Brownell began in Hawaii where Kerry hosted the 1887 Club trip to Four Seasons Hualalai and Maui. Kerry went on to attend many Brownell Academy meetings and has spent countless hours training and working with Brownell Advisors. Kerry made a vow to herself years ago that she would never represent a product that she did not stand behind 100%, and with a deep understanding of Brownell’s core values, Kerry is confident in Brownell’s dedication to our advisors, clients, and industry partners and our vision for the future.
Kerry resides in Dallas with her husband, two boys, and dog. When Kerry isn’t obsessing over the latest interior design trends, she can be found reading a good book with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
