Meet AC, the convention and visitors bureau representing Atlantic City, appointed Larry Sieg as its new president and CEO. Sieg will replace Jim Wood, who stepped down as the head of the CVB at the end of 2019.
Sieg brings more than 30 years of experience to the new role. He currently serves as director of communications and marketing for the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and previously worked at the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority, which was dissolved in 2011.
In addition, Sieg has held committee, board of directors and officer positions for organizations such as Destinations International, the Educational Seminar for Tourism Organizations, the Greater Atlantic City Chamber and the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance.
"Being someone who lives, works and plays in Atlantic City, I understand it has always been a place of great importance regionally," said Sieg, who is expected to start the new position on July 13. "I look forward to the challenge we face as we settle into a new normal and have our destination be top of mind for meeting planners throughout the country."
