Jeff Homad is joining the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau as its vice president of convention sales and services. In this role, Homad will direct all convention sales and services for the CVB and the Memphis Cook Convention Center.

Homad's more than 18 years of experience with luxury and upscale destination resorts, hotels and vacation rental properties made him the perfect match for the Memphis CVB. As vice president of convention sales and services, Homad will call upon the knowledge he gained as executive director of sales at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida, and the marketing and sales skills he honed while working for major hotels and resorts in California, Georgia, South Carolina and Washington, D.C.

"We know his expertise will be the perfect addition to our team in order for us to maintain and grow the number of meetings and conventions booked in Memphis each year," said Kevin Kane, president and CEO of the Memphis CVB.

"The authenticity and appeal of Memphis speaks for itself," said Homad, who looks forward to working with the Memphis CVB team.
