Janet in Cafe with Spritz

Janet Kurtz founded Kurtz Hospitality Marketing in March of 2016 when Nashville had emerged as a major player as a destination and hotel development was on the rise.

Janet started her career working on property at historic homes and top, luxury hotels.  Through her role in directing sales, marketing and public relations, she helped open, brand, and develop The Hermitage Hotel into one of the most recognized luxury hotels in the United States. Throughout her two-decade hospitality career she has made and continues to make connections that are invaluable to her work today.

Today, Janet's clients recognize the  value in having  a partner as integrated and knowledgable about the market and industry as she is to help them tell their story. Janet has helped numerous hotels and restaurants enter the Nashville market or grow their voice as new competition opens. Janet is also sought out by the media as a source for her expertise in the Nashville hospitality industry.
