Episode # 423
William Pate
President, Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau



This week: January 1, 2009. The organization charged with bringing tourists and conventioneers to Atlanta gets a new boss. William Pate replaces longtime executive Spurgeon Richardson at the Atlanta Convention and Visitors’ Bureau. William’s organization supports the largest commercial industry in the state, responsible for a quarter million jobs in Atlanta alone and nearly $11 and a half billion dollars in spending. And he is taking over at a time when business is, to say the least, challenged as most businesses these days are.
