The Board of Directors of the Chester County Conference and Visitors Bureau (CCCVB) recently named Susan Hamley as the organization's Executive Director.

Hamley has held several executive positions throughout her 30-year career.  Most recently, she served as the Snowmass Colorado Tourism Director, a post she held for ten years.  In this role, she was responsible for building awareness, generating visitation and stimulating spending in the multi-seasonal resort of Snowmass, often in collaboration with Aspen as a key strategic partner.  

"Chester County, and the Brandywine Valley in particular, offer so many diverse reasons for people to visit and enjoy their own customized experiences,” Hamley said. “I'm excited to join the CCCVB and support its mission of increasing tourism as a viable economic engine for the area and its businesses.” 

Chester County Commissioners Ryan Costello, Kathi Cozzone and Terence Farrell commented jointly on the appointment: “We were pleased with the caliber of the candidates that were interviewed for the role of executive director of the Conference & Visitors Bureau, and Susan Hamley’s experience and enthusiasm will serve Chester County tourism well.  The economic impact of tourism in Chester County is more than $877 million, and tourism employs more than 10,000 people.  We’re confident that, through Susan’s leadership, and the dedication of the Conference & Visitors Bureau staff, tourist attractions will continue to thrive, and the selection of Chester County as a sporting or conference event destination will increase.”

The Chester County Conference and Visitors Bureau is a not-for-profit, independent agency that serves as the official Tourism Promotion Agency (TPA) for Chester County. The Visitors Bureau was created in 1963, and is responsible for marketing Chester County and the Brandywine Valley to individual leisure travelers, motor coach and group tour operators, meeting planners and travel writers. The Bureau maintains the Brandywine Valley Tourism Information Center at 300 Greenwood Road in Kennett Square. The center welcomes visitors daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
