A year after Chicago-based C. H. Johnson Consulting Inc. delivered its recommendations for major changes within the Greater Cincinnati CVB, the bureau has announced its restructuring under the direction of its new president, Lisa Haller.

The core of the new structure is the recognition of "the need for community teamwork in attracting and retaining conventions, meetings, trade shows, and leisure visitors to the area," according to a bureau press release.

The bureau has been reorganized into four departments. One combines convention and tourism sales and will be under the direction of one vice president, for which a national search is now under way. Two new directors of sales positions have been created—one for the convention center and one for Cincinnati North. Another new department is Convention/Tourism Services, Events, and Membership, which will handle, among other responsibilities, convention services and convention housing solutions. A search for vice president to head this department is also under way.
