Park Village, a senior community under development, announces Sheri A. Lozak has been promoted to director of sales and marketing. In her new position, Lozak will assume a greater role in the community's strategic marketing and local networking.
Lozak joined Park Village as sales director in January 2012. She brings to Park Village a background in community outreach and volunteering, sales, marketing and graphic design. As a lifelong South Williamsport resident, she possesses a unique knowledge of the local area and has a strong network of connections.
"I am excited to reach out to even more people in the community and let them know about the benefits of Park Village, for themselves, for a client, a family member or a friend," Lozak said.
"Another goal is to let people know that if they stop by the information center, there will not be a high-pressure sales pitch," Lozak said. "We are here to answer questions, be an educational resource and help people understand all that Park Village can offer."
A resident of South Williamsport, Lozak is active in the local community. She is a board member and marketing committee chairwoman for Leadership Lycoming. Lozak is also a past president of the Montoursville Rotary and has been a member since 2006.
