RENO, Nev. (AP) — A long-time tourism executive in Southern California has been named the new president and CEO of the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority's board of directors.
The board voted Tuesday to hire Charles Harris. Harris is currently the chief marketing officer and executive vice president of public affairs for Visit Anaheim.
He also has served as vice-chairman of the Visit California Brand & Content Committee and co-marketing chairman of the Orange County Visitor Authority.
Harris will replace DeLone, who resigned in February citing medical reasons. The Reno Gazette-Journal reported DeLone had been the subject of an internal investigation into allegations of sexist behavior.
