Parkways Authority chair Jason Pizatella described the new Tamarack executive director as having a "history of turning properties around."
Jim Browder, most recently the president of the Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau, has extensive hotel experience on his résumé, and Pizatella said he had retail experience, as well.
Browder has been offered the job but is yet to accept.
The Parkways Authority board voted unanimously to offer Browder the job. He was among about 100 candidates for the position, Pizatella said.
Browder's wife is a Hinton native, Pizatella said.
