New Jersey. March 3, 2021: Cherry Hill Programs announces Tracie Mileski as Director of Human Resources of Cherry Hill Programs and Photogenic Inc.

Tracie has more than twenty years of HR experience and is equipped with a wealth of knowledge to impact Cherry Hill Programs and Photogenic Guest experiences. Prior to accepting her position at CHP, Tracie worked in the Christmas Tree Shops Human Resources department for over a decade.

Her background in Human Resources paired with familiarity of the holiday industry is exactly what Cherry Hill Programs needs to enhance Human Resource initiatives as the industry leader in experiential photography continues to invest in the future growth of the company.

Passionate about impactful memories, Tracie founded a nonprofit organization in 2020 known as The Mama Bear Project. She took the leap of faith in hopes of providing coping mechanisms to those grieving after losing a loved one. The mission is simple – providing a little bear hug when you need it most. Her devotion to giving back is important in her new role with the Cherry Hill team as the organization is equally dedicated to supporting causes they care about through strategic partnerships and philanthropy initiatives that create a positive influence.

Steve Craig, Chief Executive Officer, comments on Tracie’s new position, “We are very excited to have Tracie join the Cherry Hill family. Delivering the Magic to our Guests every year begins with internal strategy – hiring, training, and overall staff development and company morale. Tracie is truly aligned with our mission to deliver magical experiences, and there is no better HR partner I want on our team.”

Tracie shares: “I am so enthusiastic to join a team of innovators! I look forward to enhancing our HR Department, adding diversity and value to business strategy and improving the overall experience internally and externally. I feel incredibly fortunate to join the organization that makes magic happen every day!”
