The Greater Cincinnati Convention and Visitors Bureau is seeking a new president and CEO. Alan Welch, a retired Procter & Gamble Co. executive who has been the interim president and CEO since Lisa Haller resigned in May 2004, will remain in the post until a replacement is found. A spokesperson said the bureau hopes to fill the position this spring, prior to the opening of the new Cinergy Convention Center.

The Palm Springs Desert Resorts Convention and Visitors Association has hired Robert Enriquez as senior vice president of sales and marketing, and Woody Peek as vice president of travel industry and membership sales. Those appointments, combined with the naming of Jeff Beckelman as president and CEO in October, refill the bureau's management team, following the departure earlier this year of the CEO and three senior vice presidents.
