Visit Fairfax recently welcomed a new sales manager to our team! Linda Horowitz has taken the tour and travel reigns from our outgoing manager, Melissa McClure. Linda comes to us from Destination DC and is excited to work with you.
Linda has joined Visit Fairfax in the position of National and International Sales Manager, Travel & Tour. Originally from Kenya, Linda has lived in the National Capital Region for 7 years and holds a Masters Degree in tourism from George Washington University. She most recently worked at Destination DC and is excited to showcase the storied history, world-famous shopping, vibrant dining scene, expansive parklands and plethora of arts and cultural attractions Fairfax County offers to travelers far and wide. Linda will be managing the packaged tour sales functions for Visit Fairfax, developing group tour and FIT leisure travel business. She will work closely with operators, wholesalers, receptive operators, and travel planners to market Fairfax County to both domestic and international audiences. She will be keeping with the regularly scheduled tradeshow season this year.
While we are thrilled to welcome Linda to the team, we must also say farewell to our dear colleague Melissa McClure, who is pursuing her dreams and has moved abroad to Switzerland for the next chapter in her life and career. Melissa brought much enthusiasm, eagerness, hard work, and passion to Visit Fairfax and worked tirelessly to put Fairfax County front and center in the many national and international markets she represented for us. We will miss her very much, but wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
Please feel free to touch base with Linda for any of your tour and travel questions and to wish her a warm welcome to the Fairfax County community: LHorowitz@fxva.com.
