WOT Welcomes Dynamic New Staff
The Wyoming Office of Tourism (WOT) is thrilled to announce the recent addition of four new staff members to the agency. As many of you recall, WOT recently completed an intensive organizational assessment that helped to identify new strategic initiatives and positions within the agency.
Monica Taylor-Lee will serve as the Asia-Market Development Manager. As the newest member of the Global Sales & Services team, she will be tasked with increasing tourism to the state of Wyoming from this market segment. The newly created position was born out the organizational assessment led by the Corraggio Group, a consulting firm that focuses on strategic planning for destination marketing organizations.
Monica has nearly 20 years of experience in the travel industry with the majority of that time being spent as the Director of Sales & Marketing for Great Lakes Airlines based in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Her expertise throughout her career has consisted of building relationships with key figures in each community served by the airline and educating consumers of the benefits of utilizing their local air service. These skills offer a smooth transition into her new role of inspiring the Asia travel trade with all Wyoming has to offer. Monica can be reached at email@example.com.
Christopher Mickey joins WOT as the Media & PR Manager. As the newest member of the Brand Studio team, he will be tasked with increasing tourism to the state of Wyoming by ensuring Wyoming has a strong and consistent presence in the media as a destination and brand. Chris' previous experience includes public relations and social media outreach for U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY). Chris holds a political science degree from the University of Wyoming and is looking forward to relocating back to his hometown of Cheyenne, WY, from the Washington D.C. area. Chris can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Amanda Roberts has lived in Wyoming since she was 2 years old. She has a degree in Business Management with a strong background in accounting and leadership. Amanda will serve as the Accounting Manager for WOT, another newly created position that came out of the organizational assessment. She will manage all accounts receivable and accounts payable functions, oversee assets and budget monitoring. In addition to family and work, she judges Junior Olympic Gymnastics and enjoys camping, hiking, bowling and reading. She is very excited to have joined the team at the Office of Tourism and the opportunity for new challenges in her career. Amanda can be reached email@example.com.
Jackie Cole has lived in Wyoming most of her life. She grew up in Glenrock and moved to Cheyenne after high school. Her employment background includes previous state employment, Qwest Communications and spending the past 3 years working in a variety of fun jobs. Jackie joins the Wyoming Office of Tourism as the Business Services Coordinator. She is the first person someone will see when they enter our office, talk too many of our visitors on the telephone, provide administrative support for both Business Operations and the Brand Strategy, and work with inventory, accounts receivable and accounts payable. She is very excited to be at WOT and have the opportunity to spread her love of Wyoming to visitors. Jackie can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
"We are thrilled to welcome these new members to our team,” says Diane Shober, Executive Director of WOT. "An organization always thrives when you can blend new institutional knowledge and creativity into your foundation.”
