The Allen County/Fort Wayne Convention and Visitors Bureau has named Jill Boggs president and chief executive officer. Boggs joins Visit Fort Wayne after having served as CEO of the Kosciusko County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Boggs succeeds Dan O’Connell, who retired at the end of the year.
Boggs has also served as the assistant vice president of university marketing and communications at Trine University and as president and CEO of the Angola Area Chamber of Commerce.
“Jill’s strong knowledge of the destination marketing industry and its emerging trends, and her ability to connect that knowledge to a vision for growth, set her apart from other candidates we met in our national search,” said Kelly Updike, president & CEO of the Embassy Theatre and chair of the Visit Fort Wayne Board of Directors. “She also brings experience in economic development, marketing and staff development to our already-thriving organization. We are excited about Visit Fort Wayne’s growth potential.”
Boggs begins her new role on February 14.
She holds a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Ball State University and a Master of Science in Management from Indiana Wesleyan University.
