The Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau (GLCVB) recently appointed Melissa Nay, CTA as its new membership manager. The GLCVB’s mission is to promote the region as a visitor destination to impact the area’s economy, and in her new position, Nay will do just that.

She also previously served as the director of corporate development at WKAR-TV for six years and held the position of sales manager with the Lansing State Journal for 12 years.

Robert Snyders, who retired in late March 2017, served for 20 years as the National Sales Director for Experience Grand Rapids.

“Bob has been an integral part of the sales team at Experience Grand Rapids,” says Tom Bennett, vice president of sales and services of Experience Grand Rapids.


Thomas J.W. Voss has just been appointed managing director of the 1,048-room-Fairmont Austin, opening the summer of next year. He will be responsible for overall operations, performance and strategic direction for the newest and largest Fairmont hotel in the U.S.

With more than 35 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Voss has held a number of positions, including executive roles with Starwood Hotels.
