Around 140 business leaders enjoyed dinner at Horseshoe Bay Golf Club on Oct. 18 for the Door County Visitor Bureau’s (DCVB) 92nd annual meeting. New DCVB board members Leslie Gast (Nicolet Bank), Ben McMahon (Door County Brewing Company), and Ann Renard (Renard’s Cheese) were voted in by those members present. Gast, McMahon and Renard will begin their terms in January 2018.
Craig (Nedd) Neddersen, chair of the DCVB Board of Directors, surprised Jack Moneypenny, DCVB president/CEO, during the event with a presentation of an award for his 10 years of service. Moneypenny was hired as CEO in October 2007. “During the last 10 years Jack has orchestrated a branding, public relations, and member service renaissance,” Neddersen said. “What the DCVB has achieved is outstanding and we see lots of statistics quantifying those achievements.”
The meeting ended with the DCVB’s Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA) Employer of the Year award. CTA administrators Yvonne Torres and Laura Kevin presented the award to Segway the Door Tours owner Nick Dokolas.
