Rossi Ralenkotter, CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), has announced the appointment of Steve Hill as new the association’s president and chief operating officer (COO), effective 22 January.
The announcement completes an organisational restructuring that was introduced in January 2016. “We established our new corporate structure to better reflect the resort industry and our hospitality partners in Southern Nevada,” said Ralenkotter.
“With these final appointments to our executive suite, we are better positioned to move the organisation forward and develop more of our key staff to further improve upon our efforts to attract more visitors to Las Vegas,” added Ralenkotter.
Hill comes to the LVCVA from his position as executive director of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), a position he has held since 2011 when the agency was established. Hill will continue to serve as the chairman of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority.
Ralenkotter also announced the promotion of Cathy Tull to chief marketing officer and Ed Finger to chief financial officer. Previous additions to the C-suite included Barbara Bolender as the chief people officer and Jacqueline Peterson as chief communications and public affairs officer.
