CVB director announces resignation

| October 21, 2015

COSHOCTON – Jan Myers, director of the Coshocton Visitors Bureau, has announced her resignation and that she is taking a new position with Junction Enterprises as director of marketing and operations. This is the company that operates Unusual Junction, Medbery Marketplace, Universe Prom & Bridal, Guernsey Kitchen and McKenna’s Market in Cambridge and several other businesses.

“My son, Maxx McKenna will be graduating this coming year from OSU and returning to this company (his dad’s family business) to start a new division of the company, so I’m excited to get to work with him, too,” Myers said.

Myers has worked with the visitors bureau since 2007 and been the director since 2011.

“I have agonized about this decision because I truly love my job at the CVB,” she said.

Myers, however, feels this is a good time in her life and her family’s to make a change.

“Since this company is heavily involved with tourism, I will get to remain in the tourism industry and remain connected with all my tourism organizations and friends,” she said. “During my time at the CVB, I have enjoyed bringing the bureau to a whole new level. We have accomplished so many great projects including a successful GOBA last year,  three Ohio Chautauqua events, upgrading to our award-winning website, secured several feature articles about Coshocton and its attractions, created award-winning visitor guides, and more.”

Myers is most proud of the CVB’s new tourism information center and Annin Flagmakers Showroom in Roscoe Village, which has seen thousands of visitors since opening in 2014.

“This has also allowed us to create a few extra dollars to help pay for rent and utilities (dollars that would have had to come out of our regular lodging tax dollars),” she said.

Myers plans to stay on through January 2016 so she can help train a new person.

“Things are running smoothly here at the Coshocton Visitors Bureau which makes it a perfect time to turn the reins over to someone else to carry onward and upward,” she said. “Mindy (Brems) does a fantastic job with us here at the CVB and will remain here to maintain a smooth transition.”
