Fayetteville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau welcomes new staff members

By Staff Report, posted 1 week ago

FACVB announced on Sept. 24 the hiring of three new team members, Isaiah Griffin, Joie Schubert and Jennifer Betshlimon.


Griffin will serve as the sales coordinator for the FACVB. He will work alongside other coordinators within the organization to help them reach the goals of their recruitment and meeting efforts in Cumberland County. Originally from Ohio, Griffin moved to Fayetteville in the 80s. He is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. 


Schubert, a visitor information counselor, grew up in a military family and moved to Fayetteville a few years ago to be closer to her family. Her skills and familiarity with the area make her a fit for the position as she will be responding to questions about the area, providing materials, selling souvenir items, and serving as a public relations specialist to benefit the overall Cumberland County visitor experience. 


Betshlimon, an administrative assistant for the organization, has acquired her skillset needed for the position through a decade of experience in administrative assistance with a background in sales. Before her hiring at FACVB, Jennifer worked most recently for a corporate and criminal attorney handling data, reports, correspondence and appointments. In her new role, she will prepare reports, conduct research and collect data.
