Jonny Westom, previously the Executive Director of the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau (SVVB), announced his departure from the SVVB on Dec. 12 to take on the executive director role at Visit Dana Point.
“This is a very bittersweet announcement for me,” Westom in a report announcing his resignation to the Sonoma News. “Sonoma Valley holds a very special place in my heart; my family and I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this extraordinary community. This was a very difficult decision, but ultimately it was driven by what I believe is best for my young family. It has been a true pleasure working and living in Sonoma Valley over the past two years.”
Visit Dana Point, which includes the Ritz-Carlton of Laguna Niguel, Monarch Beach Resort, Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort and Spa and Doubletree Suites by Hilton Hotel Doheny Beach, is a collaboration consisting of the four major resorts along the coastline of Dana Point.
As of print publication, Westom did not respond to the Dana Point Times for comment. This story will be updated as more developments arise at www.danapointtimes.com.
