Stars of the Industry

Laurie Hobbs, director of public relations and marketing for the Ocean House Collection, was recently honored by the South County Tourism Council. Hobbs arrived at OH Collection with more than 20 years of experience in hospitality and has since brought the OH Collection to the attention of Vogue Magazine, Wine Spectator, Conde Nast, and Coastal Living. She expanded event programming and raised the visibility of the Artist in Residence program. Megan Moran, of the Block Island Ferry, was also honored as a Stars of the Industry winner.

“Both recipients understand the value of marketing the region as a whole. In their respective positions they continue to sell Rhode Island. We are also fortunate to have them working for South County,” said Louise Bishop, council president.
