In his new role, Wexler will be responsible for sustaining and growing current events, as well as identifying new market opportunities. He will lead the development of a short and long term events and sales strategy, to include group and coach tour operators. These will be accomplished by updating and implementing Visit Carson City’s data-driven special events strategy, as well as participating in national and international trade shows, markets and sales missions.

“Stuart is a driven sales professional who, through some of his previous roles, we have partnered with for several years,” said David Peterson, Executive Director of Visit Carson City. “He understands the importance of developing strong community and industry relationships, helping to raise awareness of all that is available for groups in Carson City. I am confident in its ability to further capitalize on the quality event offerings and attractions in our region.

Before joining the Carson City Culture and Tourism Authority, Wexler was Director of Sales at the new Staybridge Suites in Carson City, where he developed and implemented an annual sales and marketing plan, managed lead sources, and exceeded budget targets and company revenue. His additional experience included his role as Global Account Manager for Helmsbriscoe, Head of Sales for Holiday Retirement Independent Living, and working as a dual Sales Manager for Hilton Garden Inn and Staybridge Suites in Reno, Nevada.

Wexler began his sales career in Carson City as a sales manager at Hampton Inn & Suites. Later, he served as hotel sales manager at the Wyndham Garden Hotel. He is passionate about the community and is eager to help bring more people to the area.

“This position will allow me to help provide greater exposure of Carson City to those who may not be as familiar with the Nevada state capital,” Wexler said. “Having lived in Carson City for the past 25 years, I look forward to sharing more about the city’s culture, history, prime location, and the many outdoor activities and events available with others.”
