FIRST FRIDAY BUSINESS BUILDER
Please join us for our "First Friday Business Builder", an informative monthly breakfast meeting designed to provide our members added value, great speakers on important topics, updates on city and county council issues, and new business opportunities.
The excitement is building at Barefoot Landing! North Myrtle Beach's premier shopping, dining and entertainment destination celebrating its 30th anniversary this year is in the process of a multi-year transformation, including the addition of Dockside Village, a walkable restaurant district featuring Lucy Buffett's LuLu's. Jim Powalie, Barefoot Landing's general manager will touch on the redevelopment as well as Barefoot's new brand positioning and vision.
Jim Powalie is a Vice President at Burroughs and Chapin and serves as General Manager for both Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach. Jim has worked for Burroughs and Chapin since 2001. He joined the company as General Manager of Myrtlewood Villas. In 2006 he transferred to the Marina Inn as the Hotel Manager. When the Marina Inn was sold in 2012 Jim managed the remainder of the company assets in Grand Dunes, which included the Members Club, Ocean Club, Tennis Club and the Marina. He moved into the commercial side of the company in 2015 when he joined Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing. Both properties are in the midst of a multi-year redevelopment.
Jim grew up in Ohio and has lived in Myrtle Beach for 32 years. He is a graduate of Coastal Carolina University. He often says Coastal Carolina gave him two things he cherishes more than anything: his education and his wife Lisa whom he met on the first day in the first class of college. He and Lisa have 2 sons; Nicholas and Kyle. Jim served on the Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association as a board member and Chairman. He currently serves on the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and is a member of the Advisory Committee for the Hotel, Resort and Tourism program at Coastal Carolina.
