The Athens Convention & Visitors Bureau is happy to announce the hire of Rita Lowery as Director of Sales. Lowery has more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality-tourism industry, from holding key sales positions at major hotels in Atlanta and Macon to working at Cobb Travel & Tourism for more than 13 years.

"We feel privileged to have Rita’s joining our CVB and heading up its sales division," said CVB Director Chuck Jones. "Rita will oversee all sales initiatives and be responsible for ensuring that all goals and performance metrics are met, including generating actualized room nights and achieving a high citywide occupancy rate, especially given the 2013 expansion of The Classic Center and increased hotel inventory in Athens, including a Hyatt Place connected to The Classic Center."
