Vicki Voelker Bristol Named Manager of Communications for the 
New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau
Nationally recognized "PR Person to Watch" to lead proactive media relations campaign

 

NEW ORLEANS - December 13, 2013 - The New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is pleased to announce Vicki Voelker Bristol as the new manager of communications.

Bristol, who previously served as a communications strategist at Gambel Communications, brings public relations experience in managing dozens of companies spanning business, hospitality, association and non-profit. Her innovative and strategic PR thinking recently earned her recognition nationally by PR News as a PR Person to Watch, an annual award given to rising PR professionals under 30-years-old.

Bristol earned a Master's degree in Hospitality and Tourism form the University of New Orleans and a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication from Loyola University. Additionally, she is active in several local organizations including the Young Leadership Council and Junior League of New Orleans, and serves as a board member for Committee for a Better New Orleans.

As manager of communications, Bristol will report to Kelly Schulz, VP of communications and public relations. She will manage the CVB's agency partners, organize press trips, assist journalists covering New Orleans, and lead a proactive media relations/story development campaign.

"Vicki will be an asset to our award-winning PR team," said Stephen Perry, CEO and president of the New Orleans CVB. "With the growth of our communications team, we will focus more on proactive story development and targeted placement in mainstream publications. Vicki's experience with and passion for promoting New Orleans' cultural economy will be essential to achieving our national media goals."

The New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau is a nationally accredited, 1,100-member destination marketing organization and the largest and most successful private economic development corporation in Louisiana. The CVB and its members influence thousands of decision-makers and millions of visitors to choose New Orleans through direct sales, marketing, public relations, branding and visitor services at our New Orleans headquarters and offices in Washington, D.C., Chicago and four foreign countries.
