Contact Joy HIlls


As general manager of The Foundry, Joy Hills is responsible for providing exceptional experiences for tenants and guests, managing day-to-day operations, and collaborating with the Treystar team to develop new ideas for marketing, tenant relations and building improvements. Prior to Treystar, she served as program assistant for the City of Kalamazoo, Community Planning & Economic Development.

Joy earned a Master of Science in Design & Technology from Concordia University Chicago and a bachelor’s degree in English from Concordia University Ann Arbor. She is creator and co-host of the Retired Racehorse Radio podcast. When she isn’t podcasting or ensuring The Foundry runs seamless and strong, Joy loves horseback riding and training, baking and cooking, and binging anything True Crime. She and her husband, Matt, also enjoy spoiling their two German Shepards.

Being part of a company genuinely invested in Kalamazoo is one reason Joy values working for Treystar. She appreciates that no matter your level of position, the Treystar family nurtures you to be your best and give your best.
