FRAMINGHAM – The MetroWest Visitors Bureau Board of Directors announced late last week that Executive Director, Katrina White has departed the Bureau, and Jill Schindler, well-known development and outreach director, will serve as its Interim Executive Director.
The Board of Directors has full confidence that Schindler will maintain the high level of service members and residents have come to know. She has the tools and board support needed to carry on the mission of stimulating the MetroWest economy by marketing the region’s assets.
Paul Matthews, Executive Director for the 495/MetroWest Partnership and member of the Board said “as a Board of leaders representing a broad range of constituencies across MetroWest, we’re very appreciative of Jill’s hard work and commitment to the Bureau. Thanks to her and other terrific staff; Phyllis O’Hare, Bill Sell, Tori Nagle, and Brian McGrory along with
nearly 100 volunteers, we will be holding another great MetroFest, and are continuing to serve all of MetroWest with visitor and marketing initiatives.”
The MetroWest Board of Directors are committed to the success of the Bureau and will continue to follow the mission to market the region and stimulate economic activity.
“Change always brings the opportunity for pause and review. During this time we will continue the good work of past Executive Directors and look toward a bright future,” said Steve Levinsky, MetroWest Visitors Bureau Chair. “We wish Ms. White the best in her future endeavors and thank her for her contributions to the bureau.”
The Board of Directors and staff are prepared and excited for MetroFest this Saturday, June 15, starting at 11 a.m. The weather looks promising and the event has been planned perfectly, attendees will enjoy food trucks, music, beer tasting tent, children’s activities and more!
