Juneau Convention and Visitors Bureau, Board of Directors Chairman Steve Hamilton announced that Nancy Woizeschke has been named to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer.
Woizeschke has been a member of the Board for five years, representing her current employer, Alaskan Brewing Co, and says she is “honored and excited to be given this incredible opportunity.
