McPherson City Commissioners approved the hiring of Joni Regnier as the city's new director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau during Monday's meeting.
City Administrator Nick Gregory said Regnier was chosen out of seven candidates interviewed.
“She does come to us with quite a bit of marketing experience,” Gregory said. “She's worked, including the [McPherson] Sentinel, for about 15 years for newspapers in a marketing capacity, selling ads. She's local. She actually lives here in McPherson. I think she's going to do an incredible job for us.”
Regnier will replace Anne Hassler-Heidel. Regnier will start with the CVB July 6.
