The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce Tourism Division is pleased to announce John Basile as the new Account Executive. He will be responsible for leading the Division’s sales efforts to strategically grow not only the organization, but also area businesses within the community that benefit from tourism marketing efforts — all with the vision of positioning Beaufort as a premier leisure, event and group meeting destination.
John comes to the chamber with more than 19 years of sales experience from the Chicago area. A few of his previous employers include RSVP, MarketShare and ReachLocal, all of which enabled him to master the skills he’ll apply in his new position. At RSVP and MarketShare, he worked directly with restaurants and retailers and generated a lead generation system that allowed him to exceed sales quotas. In addition, John has experience in media that made him uniquely qualified for this position.
Blakely Williams, President of the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce, stated John will play a crucial role in the organization of continuing to build and strengthen relationships with area businesses to portray the value the Chamber has within the community. “We’re adding even more advertising programs to our list of offerings to better serve our partners. John is joining our team at the right time to kick these off and to begin work on our next Visitors Guide. We couldn’t be more excited to have him on board,” she said.
“I look forward to meeting all of our partners in the community and working with them to help grow their business,” John said.
John can be contacted at John@BeaufortSC.org or at 843.525.8533. Questions regarding tourism-related advertising opportunities offered by the chamber, including web site, eNews, interactive kiosk, Visitor Center display, leads programs, and more, may be directed to him.
The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce is the Designated Marketing Organization (DMO) for the city of Beaufort, the town of Port Royal and the unincorporated Sea Island regions of northern Beaufort County.
