Toni Green, Greater Birmingham Convention and Visitors Bureau
National Sales Manager
Resume: While Toni Green’s first stop post-college was at the water park Alabama Adventure, she was hardly wet behind the ears when it came to hospitality. In fact, Green, CDMP, made enough of a splash in sales and marketing that the Birmingham folks took notice and coaxed her into selling their destination at the CVB, where she’s garnered rave reviews since 2008.
Career Highlight: “Helping sign the National Baptist USA Convention (and its roughly 10,000 attendees) for 2014. I worked as the liaison between our local pastors, hotels and the national group.”
Inspiration: “Janice Jefferson was my mentor when I came on board at the bureau. She trained me, introduced me to a ton of people, and taught me the business and her work ethic.”
Industry Confession: “Looking at me you might not know that I’m a hermit crab, but I am. When I’m not out working and being a total people person, I really enjoy my solitude.”
Hidden Talent: “I’m a huge dog lover and no dog is a stranger to me. They are drawn to me and act as if they’ve know me forever.”
