Kristen McLean


The opportunity to help a company grow and flourish is what I consider to be my ultimate calling and what also brings me the most joy. I have more than 22 years of experience managing projects and accounts primarily in the luxury space, including high-end real estate, resorts and communities, and women’s clothing. 

I have worked on the agency side, on my own as a solopreneur with a cadre of contractors in my proverbial Rolodex, and in-house for a real estate marketing firm. Ultimately, my approach to every project and client remains the same: to formulate and execute an integrative marketing plan that exceeds the desired outcomes. My strengths lie in project management, organization, unrivaled customer service, and high-impact event planning. 

I received my degree from the University of South Carolina where I was a double major in management and marketing. I have always known the basic direction I wanted to go with my career and am thankful to have had so many different ways to bring skill and value to my work. 

Prior to joining TealHaus, I took on a major volunteer role for two years as the 2022 Rose Ball Chairman, Greenville’s longest-running charitable event that raised $4 million for Bon Secours St. Francis and several other local nonprofit organizations. 

I am a passionate community advocate and have served as a Chair of the United Way Young Leaders Society and am currently active as a Sustainer with the Junior League of Greenville, a member of the MAG Garden Club, and a member of First Presbyterian Church. I have a 10-year-old daughter and a 17-year-old son that keep my husband and I busy cheering them on at various sporting events. My free time usually includes playing tennis and traveling whenever we can.
