Best Wishes to Ron Melton

Posted on October 26, 2016

Ron Melton, Visit Baltimore's Chief Operating Officer, has tendered his resignation with Visit Baltimore to accept the position of CFO/COO with the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM). An organization representing public assembly venues from around the globe, our own Baltimore Convention Center included, this is an exciting opportunity for Ron to return to his professional roots and family home in Texas. Before coming to Visit Baltimore, and in addition to senior DMO positions in Portland and Denver, Ron accumulated a majority of his 25 years in the industry in Texas including leadership positions with the Dallas-based Conference Meeting & Assistance Corp. as well as the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Ron most recently stepped in to serve as interim president & CEO following the departure of Tom Noonan. Ron provided excellent and thoughtful leadership during a critical time of transition for the organization and we thank him for his leadership and wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor. Ron's last day with Visit Baltimore will be Friday, November 11.
