Interim Director of Columbus Convention and Trade Center named

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Weeks after the Executive Director of the Columbus Convention and Trade Center resigned, a new leader has been chosen.

Former Executive Director Larry Campbell will serve as the Interim Director. David Bevans resigned two weeks ago.

The trade center board voted unanimously Thursday to bring him back.

Chairman Robert Nobles says it will be great to have Campbell's knowledge and experience back as the search for a new executive director continues.

"Larry brings leadership, he brings work experience and an intimate knowledge of the facility, said Robert Nobles, chairman"

Nobles says the search for permanent executive director could take 6 months or more.
