Go Wichita CEO Leaving Kansas for Houston

John Rolfe, president and CEO of the Go Wichita Convention & Visitors Bureau in Wichita, Kan., has announced his resignation in order to accept a position as chief operating officer of the Greater Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau in Houston, Texas, the Wichita Business Journal reported last month.

Rolfe has been head of Wichita's CVB since 2001. His last day with the organization is March 15.

"I will truly miss Go Wichita, the Wichita community and the wonderful people who make this one of the greatest cities in the United States," Rolfe said. "At the same time, I look forward to this great opportunity in the nation's fourth largest city, Houston, Texas."

Added Go Wichita Board Chair Stephen Stewart, "John has been a true asset to Wichita and to the travel and tourism industry on a local, regional, state and national level. We will certainly miss John's leadership, yet at the same time we wish John and his family much success in this new chapter in their lives."
