Woizeschke new head of JCVB

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. We have a robust membership, strong leadership on the Board, dedicated volunteers and a talented staff — I’m very fortunate!”

Former JCVB President/CEO Lorene Palmer left in November after 10 years in the post to take a state position.

Woizeschke, a Minnesota native, has lived in Juneau for 15 years, working for the State of Alaska and Smith Barney/Citigroup before joining the brewery almost 8 years ago, where her focus has included hospitality and marketing. She has served as both secretary and treasurer on the JCVB Board.

Formed in 1985, the Juneau Convention & Visitors Bureau is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to economic development in Juneau by promoting the area as a year-round travel destination. The JCVB currently has approximately 270 members. Woizeschke starts her duties on Monday, March 4.
