The Savannah Lakes Village Board of Directors (SLVBOD) at its August 21 board meeting voted to promote Kirk Smith to the position of general manager/chief operating officer effective immediately.
For the past four months, Kirk has been serving in this capacity as acting chief operating officer, and he has done an outstanding job performing these duties. In addition to his strong marketing skills, Kirk understands the business, has a great financial background, and has demonstrated a strong leadership talent. Over the last four months, Kirk has also demonstrated his ability to make the necessary decisions to reduce costs without affecting SLV’s ability to increase revenue and residential growth.
Kirk joined Savannah Lakes Village on October 8, 2001 as the marketing/communications manager. In 2006 he was promoted to the director of marketing. In this role, he also worked very close with the chief operating officer to assist him in the overall operations and community planning. Kirk has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing and management, and a Master of Science in Management.
Kirk is very excited to continue working with his leadership team and to continue the work that needs to be done to drive the community forward.
The SLV BOD is confident that Kirk will continue to do an outstanding job, and they would like the community to join them in congratulating Kirk on his promotion as the new general manager/chief operating officer.
