Karen Kobussen

Senior Director, Strategy & Growth


After a 6-year hiatus, Karen Kobussen returns to the association as Senior Director, Strategy & Growth. With an entrepreneurial spirit and four start-up enterprises on the go, Karen brings to this role her keen business insight and ability to envision, create and deliver exceptional stakeholder value. She is a connector of people, a relationship builder and loves creating unforgettable experiences with every client interaction. When she’s not busy working on HomeStyles, Housing Excellence Awards, Growth & Development Forum, Parade of Homes, the Builders’ Classic Golf Tournament and happily creating overall member value, you’ll find her working on her other business ventures or relaxing at home in the kitchen aspiring (or pretending!) to be a world class chef, baking up a storm or tending to her abundance of house plants!
