LAKE HAVASU CITY– Tourist information center Go Lake Havasu is looking for a new CEO but for now, former CEO of the Havasu’s Chamber of Commerce Lisa Krueger has stepped in as the center’s interim CEO. 
Go Lake Havasu was established in the mid-1990s and has since become the go to center for finding out about the latest activities such as recreation, event happenings, restaurants, and much more. 
The center also promotes the city’s economic growth, undeniable beauty, and conservation. Late December of last year was when the information center parted ways with their then CEO Susan Smith. Last month City Manager Jess Knudson announced at a recent city council meeting that Krueger would be temporarily stepping in to oversee the center’s CEO duties.  
Krueger is a familiar face amongst the Lake Havasu community. Last August was when Krueger retired as the CEO for the Chamber of Commerce. 
Her career in the chamber field began 27 years ago in Parker. In 2002, Krueger accepted her Havasu chamber role. The former CEO’s career lead to amazing travel opportunities, skill set developments, and connections with Havasu residents that Krueger says are now her lifelong friends. 
The CEO role for Go Lake Havasu is one that works closely with the city’s Chamber of Commerce as well as with managing the center’s staff, administrative duties, and enhancing the tourism experience. The Go Lake Havasu tourist information center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at London Bridge Road. 
The center also has a website filled with local events to attend which has 24-hour access. With several months of relaxing retirement life behind her, Krueger is more than ready to dive into this new role that will once more have her fully engaged with the community and activities that she is still so passionate about. Her new role with the tourist information center started just last week and while there is no immediate rush to fill the CEO as of yet, Krueger shared that she will also be instrumental in helping the visitor center recruit just the right person for the position. A job that she shared must be for someone with a strong background in promotions, marketing, leadership, and nonprofits.  
Candidates do not need to be local as the Go Lake Havasu team is open to out of state recruitment for those candidates open and willing to relocate to Lake Havasu. Krueger’s service as a Chamber of Commerce leader collaboratively lead the chamber into a promising and exciting future, and Go Lake Havasu is looking forward to experiencing Krueger’s magic with them in the months ahead.
