Business Development Manager
Professional Experience

Elaine, Business Development Manager at Woodworth Core Group, is based in Boise, ID. She is responsible for maintaining and growing our client base. She has over 20 years’ experience in the hospitality industry in research and development.


After graduation, she began a sales career with Xerox Corporation in Birmingham, AL. She was transferred to San Diego, CA and spent her years there in management until moving back to Birmingham to raise her family. She started a company, employing 35 teachers, to teach computers in preschools, after-school programs and training teachers at college workshops.


She was introduced to the hospitality market by veteran hotel developer and appraiser, Mike Cowart and it quickly became her dream job of managing the in-house database, making connections with hotel brokers and owners, and supporting the appraisers by providing the research for the appraisals. She continues to manage the client base as she enjoys a “semi-retired” life biking and hiking Idaho and spending time with her husband and four grandchildren.
