Henderson appointed president of regional tour

June 16, 2014

PERE MARQUETTE TWP. — Brandy Henderson, executive director of the Ludington Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, has been appointed to serve as president of Michigan’s Great Outdoors (MGO), a six-county regional tourism organization representing Manistee, Mason, Lake, Oceana, Wexford and Newaygo counties. Established in 2003, the organization serves as a marketing collaborative with a mission to promote tourism for a stronger economy. Henderson replaces Laurie Supinski, former MGO president and executive director of the Newaygo County Convention & Visitors Bureau, who accepted a new position as director of Emerge at GR Current.

The MGO region encompasses some of the best outdoor recreational offerings in the lower peninsula of Michigan. The six counties each share claim to significant portions of the Manistee National Forest. Major rivers in the region include the Muskegon River, the Pine River, the Pere Marquette River and the Manistee River. From the shores of Lake Michigan with pristine rolling sand dunes, hiking and biking trails, waterways and winter trail systems, this region is at the heart of outdoor recreation in Michigan with the infrastructure and amenities to support large quantities of tourism traffic, boosting local economies.

In addition to Michigan’s Great Outdoors, Henderson serves as a board member for the Michigan Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus and the Miss Ludington Area Pageant. She is a marketing committee member for the Tourism Industry Coalition of Michigan, the Downtown Ludington Board and the Ludington Area Arts Council.
