The Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority Board of Directors has selected Charles Harris to be the organization’s next President and CEO.

The President/CEO reports directly to the RSCVA Board, and through direction of the Board, coordinates, directs and is responsible for all activities associated with the operation of the RSCVA and its facilities. Harris is scheduled to begin on Nov. 16.

The RSCVA owns and/or operates a number of venues in the region, including the National Bowling Stadium, Reno-Sparks Convention Center, Reno Events Center and Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center.

Harris comes to Reno after serving as the Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of Public Affairs for Visit Anaheim, for which he has served as a senior executive since 2014, responsible for developing and implementing strategies related to marketing, communications, public relations, advertising and web development.

A former sports management executive who has worked for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Anaheim Ducks, Angels Baseball and UC Irvine Athletics, Harris also is an avid landscape photographer with two grown children.

“I am grateful to the board for their confidence and excited to join such an enthusiastic and talented team,” Harris said. “With its unique combination of outdoor adventure and downtown excitement, Reno Tahoe is poised to take its place among the nation’s most compelling destinations, and I can’t wait to get started.”
