The Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission welcomes Nena Olivier in the newly created position of marketing/sales assistant.
Nena Olivier has worked in the tourism industry since 2005 as the administrative assistant for the LTCC. In 2010 Olivier left the LTCC to work for the Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau. While at the ETCB Olivier gained much knowledge and experience in social media marketing, group and individual travel sales and destination branding. Olivier completed the KTIA Basic Certification Program and is a 2012 graduate of the Hardin County Leadership program.
“The growth in our local tourism industry over the past two years, visible predominantly in the additions of venues like the Marion County Heritage Center, WhiteMoon Winery, Limestone Branch Distillery, glamping at Popes Creek Ranch and the work of Kentucky Classic Arts at Angelic Hall, plus a plethora of new events like Color in Motion, Eddie Miles Concerts, Turtleman Trek and more, has placed higher demands on the staff of the LTCC,” said Carla Wagner, executive director of the commission. “The trick was to streamline and automate some processes, plus create a heavy weight marketing position without increasing office operating costs. We are so fortunate to have succeeded in this and finding a skilled marketer who could hit the ground running with a great passion for and knowledge of Lebanon, plus the Kentucky travel industry as a whole. Nena meets these qualities to a tee and the office is now positioned for lean excellence.“
Olivier is a native of Lebanon. She a is 2002 graduate of Campbellsville University with a degree in communications and minor in journalism. She is married to her husband Billy and they have one son, Carter. Her first day of work with the commission will be Feb. 17.
