Red Bank Visitors Center announces new Chair of Board Courtney Schroeder

The Red Bank Visitors Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Courtney Schroeder as the Chair of the Red Bank Visitors Center Board.  Courtney began her tenure at Two River Theater in 2009, where for the past six years she has held the position of Director of Marketing.  Prior to landing at the Two River Theater, she worked in the Development wing for Ballet Hispanico in New York City.  In addition, she is also Chair of the Discover Jersey Arts, Central NJ Marketing Committee. Courtney is currently on the marketing committees for NJ Theater Alliance, Monmouth County Arts Council and Red Bank RiverCenter.  Courtney graduated from Wagner College, Magna cum Laude, with a BS in Arts Administration and a double minor in Dance and Spanish. Courtney’s knowledge and expertise in the Arts will be a great asset to the travel and tourism components so vital to Red Bank’s diverse and thriving arts community.

The Red Bank Visitors Center Board also benefits in having two former Directors of Travel and Tourism for the State of New Jersey, Nancy Byrne-Reinhart, past Chair and Grace Hanlon adding their many years of expertise and knowledge to keep Red Bank as a dominant destination as the “Gateway to the Jersey Shore” area.  Our other Board Members include a select, and expert variety of professionals in the world of tourism, travel, hotels, journalism, arts and culture, theater, local business owners, residents and promotional experts working with an intimate knowledge of Red Bank.  Our members work daily with visitors, residents and friends from near and far. To that end, Red Bank was named Favorite Downtown Arts District by Jersey Arts for three consecutive years 2015 – 2017.
