| October 7, 2020 1:00 AM

Maren Siu has been hired as the new public relations manager at Whitefish Mountain Resort. She began in the position at the end of September.

Siu came to Whitefish by way of Massachusetts but has deep family ties to the Flathead Valley. Her mom was born in Whitefish and raised in Havre. Her mom’s love for Montana brought their family back to Whitefish in the late 80s and they’ve had property in Whitefish ever since.

Since moving full time to Whitefish, Siu has spent the last four years working and living in the valley as a broadcast journalist. First, at ABCFOX Montana and then at KPAX/KAJ. At both, she broke national news as well as told local stories featuring the community.  

“We’re very happy to have Maren on our team,” said Nick Polumbus, Director of Marketing and Sales. “With her journalism experience in the region we’re confident in her local knowledge and the relationships she has established. We’re also thrilled about her personality. She’s going to bring a dynamic and fun voice to our communication efforts and mostly we just know she’s going to be fun to come to work with every day.” 

 Siu is excited to work and represent the resort she loves and grew up learning to ski and ride on. In her free time, she loves to hike, swim and snowboard with her fiancé and their dog Jackson, who is named after the Glacier National Park peak. She also teaches Learn to Skate at Stumptown Ice Den.

Her last name will be changing soon to McKay following her upcoming wedding. After meeting her fiancé several years ago in Glacier National Park on media day they are getting married in October.

She can be reached at  406-862-1955 or marenm@skiwhitefish.com.
