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.
