His primary focus is pharmaceutical and convention center business. With more than 15 years of experience in destination sales and marketing with convention and visitors bureaus, Pennison brings the knowledge and skill required to work with meeting and convention customers. For more than seven years, Pennison worked as a sales manager and senior sales manager for the New Orleans CVB, after which he joined the Greater Phoenix Convention and Visitors Bureau, first as the associate director of sales and later as the director of convention sales.
