10. President and COO of Titanic Museum Attractions, Mary Kellogg-Joslyn
Ms. Kellogg-Joslyn has an extensive background in entertainment, marketing and production. She served for 20 years as Executive Senior Vice President Television for The Walt Disney Company. During this period, she worked directly with Disney CEO, Michael Eisner and Studio Chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg, contributing to their successful effort to revitalize the Walt Disney Company with creative energy and evolutionary concepts. In her operations capacity she worked closely with Don Ohlmeyer, former President of NBC’s West Coast Division, in overseeing production of Disney LIVE Event Specials.
As Cedar Bay Entertainment’s President & COO, Ms. Kellogg-Joslyn is in charge of operations, developing and marketing, advertising, sales, public relations and merchandising strategies for the company’s Titanic Branson operation, and for the Pigeon Forge Titanic attraction. In addition, she creates year-round local and national media events for the museum attractions.
Ms. Kellogg-Joslyn is an expert in what it takes to run a ship as big as the Titanic Museum Attraction. She created a Titanic college for employees to understand what Titanic is, the philosophy of the company and ultimately, why they are all there.
“I always teach everyone, during their Titanic college, that this ship is to pay respect to the 2,208 that were aboard this ship. And we’ve had over 300 Titanic descendants come and they all say the same thing, ‘Thank you for telling our stories.’”
