Leadership Change PACVB


Leadership change announced at Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau


PEORIA – The Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau Board will begin a search for a new President/Chief Executive Officer to lead the organization. This action comes after the Board accepted the resignation of Brent Lonteen.


“I want to thank Brent for his service and dedication” says Rick Edwards, Chairman of the Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau Board. “He accomplished many positive things during his time here, and we certainly wish him well in his future endeavors.”


Lonteen joined the Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau in 2006. The board has not established a firm timetable yet to name his successor. The search process will begin immediately. Edwards will assume President/CEO leadership duties in the interim, only until a permanent replacement is accepted. Edwards has indicated no interest in the open position and therefore is not considered to be a candidate.


The PACVB represents an eight county region including Bureau, Fulton, Marshall, Mason, Peoria, Stark, Tazewell, and Woodford. The organization’s mission is to promote the Peoria Area as a destination for visitors and contribute to the economic growth of the communities they represent.
