Kimberly Chase, Director of Golf Sales and Membership Support for Tranquilo Golf Club at Four Seasons Resort Orlando, brings with her 20 years’ experience including 10 years in Walt Disney World® Resort golf sales and events. She has also held key sales and event leadership roles with Orange Lake Resorts, InterContinental, Hyatt and Sheraton. Her energetic, passionate persona is a reason why Disney chose Chase as the keynote speakerfFor Disney Institute’s Approach to Leadership Excellence, the renowned professional development segment of the Walt Disney Company. Chase’s extensive knowledge of the Florida golf scene, plus her vivacious, welcoming personality, makes her a true asset to the team.
In her spare time, one may think Chase can be found teeing up on the greens. Surprisingly, this golf expert is not an avid golfer. “I love the passion golfers have for the game and how essential it is for business, and I can happily play in a best-ball tournament,” says Chase, who shares that her preferred sport is actually football. “I was raised by a football coach, so I love playing football, even more so than watching it!”
Growing up in an Italian family, with several family members still residing in Bellosguardo, a town north of Italy’s renowned Amalfi coast, Chase has a weakness for Italian food, and loves to cook. One of her Italian specialties is braciole, a thin piece of veal or beef rolled around a filling and baked in wine.
In addition to cooking, Chase notes, “I am an exercise fanatic, and addicted to adventure!” The Amalfi coast is one of her favuorite places to explore, and Chase loves visiting her family there with her son, Cory.
