David Hein has been named vice president of sales and business development for Oki Golf and Oki Developments, a new role. He was VP of business development at the Bellevue-based companies, and also served as general manager at The Golf Club at Newcastle, the flagship property among Oki’s public golf courses.
In his new role as vice president of sales and business development, Hein will be directly responsible for all aspects of corporate sales, including oversight of corporate partnership programs, catering and golf tournament sales and membership programs across all of Oki Golf’s nine properties.
“David has been an integral part of our success since joining the team in 1996,” said Nancy Cho, president and CEO of Oki Developments and Oki Golf. “I’m excited that David will continue his contributions as he leads our Sales and Business Development Department.”
Because of the demands of his new position, Hein will move to the Oki Golf corporate office and vacate his responsibilities as general manager at The Golf Club at Newcastle, a position he has held for more than six years. Hein’s history with Oki Golf spans nearly 15 years, where his duties have included project manager for the development of The Golf Club at Newcastle, regional operations manager and most recently, vice president of business development and general manager at The Golf Club at Newcastle.
Prior to joining Oki Developments, Hein worked with leading companies in the golf and hospitality industries, including American Golf in California and the Lanai Company on the island of Lanai in Hawaii. Hein graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in horticulture.
