The Greater Wildwoods Tourism and Development Authority’s John Siciliano is among the top six finalists for the Best Growth Manager for the NJBIZ CFO of the Year Award for 2016. Siciliano was nominated for outstanding leadership in his role as Executive Director/CFO at GWTIDA.

The nominees were selected from companies across the state, including Hackensack Meridian Health Network, Case Real Estate Capital LLC, STOPit, Commvault and Modway Inc. The nominees were all recognized on Oct. 14 by NJBIZ and many other industry professionals.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized as a finalist alongside these accomplished CFO’s,” says Siciliano, executive director and CFO, GWTIDA. “My goal with the Board of Directors and staff of GWTIDA is to continually implement new and innovative ways to retain our position as a leader in the travel and tourism industry.”

The Wildwoods area is becoming a more popular destination for family vacations—with 2015 being a record-breaking tourism year. Wildwoods saw $1.5 billion in tourism spending, a 4.9 percent increase from 2014. This has had a positive effect on the area’s economy, as they’ve experienced 2.2 percent growth, equating to 5,660 new jobs and a $129 million in tax revenue.

Modern ingenuity, local history and curiosity shape the foundation that will soon be home to the new Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin hotel. Expected to open in the fall of 2021, Colorado-based real estate investor and developer McWHINNEY has big plans for this full-service lifestyle hotel.

 

Gone without regional and national recognition, over the years the City of Roseville has been overlooked and even mistaken for being somewhere in St. Paul. In 2016, the Visit Roseville partnered with DestinationNext to strategically plan and determine priorities for Visit Roseville to pursue in the future to receive more recognition. After taking a self-assessment using an online diagnostic toolkit, Visit Roseville was able to establish a course of action.

 

Considerably known for being the hub of the city, Hyatt Regency San Francisco invites you to experience San Francisco like you’ve never experienced it before. Premiering its 15 new guest rooms, Hyatt Regency San Francisco boasts breathtaking views and a feeling of effortless luxury.
