County Commissioner Stacy Ritter is the new Broward tourism director.

Ritter was given the key position as director of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau because of her long knowledge of the community, her political skills and her vow to bring a fresh direction to the agency.

“I wanted someone who could be a strategic thinker, who’s a good communicator, who’s very passionate about our destination,” County Manager Bertha Henry told the Sun-Sentinel

Ritter will take over the agency which is responsible for promoting an industry, which welcomed 15.4 million visitors to Broward spending more than $14.2 billion last year.
