CVB’s Director of Sales Recognized as Industry Leader 

Ms. Beverly Stewart, Director of Sales for the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen Convention & Visitors Bureau, was recognized by Collaborate Magazine as one of twenty-one meetings-industry leaders nationwide in its December/January 2015 edition.  The magazine named corporate meeting professionals that are proven leaders in relationship building, one of the most important traits for influencers in the field. The honorees chosen, despite their different job responsibilities, career paths and places of work, are noted by the editors as visionary, insightful and knowledgeable in the magazine’s special section.

When asked “What are three big things you’ve learned during your industry career?” Ms. Stewart replied, “Treat people fairly, honestly and sincerely, and they will remember it. Never promise something that can’t be delivered – especially if it’s someone else’s responsibility. Regardless of the amount of detail set in stone, be as flexible as possible.”
