WESTBANK, BRITISH COLUMBIA, September 12, 2006 – Leasa Kennedy has joined the Cove Lakeside Resort as the Director of Sales and Marketing for the new 150-room luxury resort.

The full-service luxury Cove Lakeside Resort is tucked on the shores of the spectacular Okanagan Lake. Features such as gourmet kitchens, most with stainless steel appliances, soaking tubs, Great Room with Entertainment Centre including a 42” plasma television and DVD player, fireplace, and floor to ceiling windows opening on to breathtaking views of Okanagan Lake, will complement the hotel’s 1500 square feet of meeting space.

“The Cove Lakeside Resort will be an outstanding property that will certainly add to the Okanagan region,” says Kennedy. “I look forward to working with both the team at The Cove and its partners in looking for opportunities to drive the success of hotel and the destination as we move into the future.
