Susan Sparkman Smith

Director of Business Development, MMI Dining SystemsSSm

What year did you join the MMI family?  2011

What are three words you would use to describe the MMI family?  Challenging. Fun. Rewarding.

What is a fun fact that you wouldn’t mind sharing with the world about yourself?  Susan started in the hospitality business in high school.  She got a job at Old Waverly Golf Club during the summers and fell in love with the business.  She took one brief position outside of hospitality during her 22 year career and only lasted 9 months.  She returned to hospitality and works diligently now to grow our dining services.

As Director of Business Development for the western portion of the Southeastern US, Susan’s primary responsibilities with MMI are new business development, sales and marketing. Her experience ranges from operational management and member retention to sales and marketing. Her passion is relationship building. Prior to joining the MMI team she held sales and management positions with VIP Grand Events and the University Club in Jackson, Jupiter Island Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, Riverchase Country Club in Hoover, Alabama and Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point.

Susan is a 1996 graduate of Mississippi State University and she resides with her family in Madison.
