By The Telegram
Kimberlea Inderlied has been named executive director of the Finney County Convention and Visitors Bureau by the CVB's board of directors.
Inderlied, of Tulsa, Okla., is currently information technology manager for Enterprise Holdings Inc., one of the largest privately-held companies in the U.S., and the largest car rental service provider in the world, operating almost 1.3 million cars and trucks, with annual revenues of $15.4 billion, according the company's website.
With Enterprise, Inderlied was most recently project manager for the transition of the company's 75,000 employees to a new intranet communications and information management system.
"I'm excited by the opportunities to introduce Garden City and Holcomb to business and recreational travelers," Inderlied said. "Finney County has an interesting story to tell, and our businesses and industries play a key role in supplying the nation's food and energy needs. I'm looking forward to being a part of telling this story."
A native of Buffalo, Okla., Inderlied replaces former executive director Lynn Schoonover, who resigned in January. Her scheduled start date is March 29.
"Kim's background in the travel industry in technology, sales and managing social media projects were key factors in her selection," Amro Samy, CVB board chairman, said.
A graduate of Oklahoma State University, Inderlied has taught in public schools and at the University of Tulsa and worked in corporate training and sales in the telecommunications industry.
The CVB is funded by a county lodging occupancy tax and is responsible for marketing Finney County's facilities and attractions to visitors and businesses.
