EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The Evansville Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) named a new executive director on Monday.

Jim Wood will take over on January 15.

Wood is the former CEO of Meet Atlantic City in New Jersey.

John Chaszar, President of the CVB Board of Commissioners, said Wood was picked out of a nationwide search for the position.

Chaszar said he brings expertise and knowledge that will bring CVB up to the standard city leaders envisioned: to keep up with the growth going on in the rest of the city.

Right now, Woods lives in Louisville but he will spend most of his time in Evansville before moving to Evansville permanently.
