“Cheryl is incredibly experienced and well respected in the industry,” Lynelle Caudill, chairman of the CVB’s board of directors, said in the news release.
Kilday’s predecessor at the Spokane CVB, Harry Sladich, resigned in April to take a senior-level job with Spokane-based Red Lion Hotels Corp.
The CVB conducted a national search for his replacement.
