WARSAW – The Kosciusko County Convention and Visitors Bureau has hired Cori Humes as its new executive director.
The organization’s Board of Directors formed a search committee of five members to select a new director after Jill Boggs announced her resignation. Boggs took a similar position in Fort Wayne after six years with the Kosciusko County CVB.
Humes has a long history in the destination marketing industry. For the past eight years, she has served as the Executive Director of the Marshall County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Prior to that, she served as the assistant director and has a total of 13 years of experience in a destination marketing organization. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Political Science from Indiana University of South Bend.
She’ll begin work on April 4.
“We are thrilled to have someone with Cori’s extensive experience and leadership skills as the next director of the Kosciusko County Convention and Visitors Bureau,” said Doug Hanes, City President of 1st Source Bank in Warsaw and Chair of the KCCVB Board of Directors. “Cori’s extensive knowledge of the destination marketing industry and her vision for economic growth in the community set her apart. She brings new ideas and marketing skills to an already thriving organization.”
In her new role, Humes will be responsible for the overall administration, supervision, and operation of KCCVB.
“As a lifetime Marshall County resident, Kosciusko County has always felt like a second home. From the great dining choices, shopping, lakes, and attractions, I am looking forward to the opportunity to represent Visit Kosciusko County in my new role and learn a great deal more about this wonderful county,” said Humes.
