Wausau Visitors Bureau appoints new leader

WAUSAU (WAOW) - The Wausau Convention and Visitors Bureau has a new leader. Richard Barrett has been appointed the executive director of the bureau.

Barrett has worked for the bureau for six years and was the sports director. He replaces Darren Schaefer who resigned.

Although he said it's overwhelming right now, Barrett is excited to take on the new role.

"I look forward to serving the community and want to help this community grow and expand on the conventions and sports and keep both those areas moving, because it brings dollars for our community, which helps everybody," said Barrett.

Barrett took over as leader of the bureau Monday.
