DMCCVB Hires New Special Events and Sports Marketing Director

The Decatur-Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau (DMCCVB) welcomes Leonard Morris II as its new Director of Special Events and Sports Marketing effective July 16, 2012.  Morris will serve as the CVB’s liaison to special events in Morgan County as well as assist in attracting new sporting events.
Morris comes to DMCCVB from Chick-fil-A where he was responsible for marketing and sales in its Decatur, Athens, and Huntsville locations for the past six years. He has served on Chick-fil-A’s grand opening marketing team in five different cities and is a member of the Chick-fil-A Corporate Event Staff during the CFA Bowl/Kickoff games in Atlanta, Georgia. In his spare time, he serves as an AHSAA official for basketball, baseball, and football, an assistant baseball coach for Dixie Youth, volunteer coach for 6th grade girls basketball, is involved with WHO AM I? Basketball Camps, and is director of the Decatur Heritage Christian Academy Saturday League Basketball.

"Through his involvement with sports-related programs and his experience in sales and marketing, Leonard has cultivated many professional and personal relationships.  I believe most people have come to know Leonard through his position with Chick-fil-A. His communication and presentation skills along with his promotional experience will play a major role as we aggressively market Decatur and Morgan County as a destination for sporting events, athletic programs, and special events,” said DMCCVB President Tami Reist.
