Meet the team at Visit Oxnard
The mission of Visit Oxnard is to promote and market Oxnard as a premier leisure and business travel destination that brings significant economic and social benefits to our community. Visit Oxnard is funded by a 1.5 percent tourism assessment charged by area hotels with 51+ rooms as well as a yearly contracted amount from the City of Oxnard.
In addition to being governed by a Board of Directors, made up of a diverse group of professionals with expertise from various sectors of the tourism and hospitality industries, Visit Oxnard is made up of a team of marketing, sales and administrative professionals whose goals are to: 1) Increase overnight stays and visitation during off-season; 2) Improve the perception of Oxnard to residents and visitors; and 3) Increase online audience across social and digital platforms.
Visit Oxnard offers an unparalleled work culture, so ingrained in its employees that the term “staff” is always substituted by the word “team.” Leadership is invested in the tenants of sociocracy, or dynamic governance, a decentralized method of management, where everyone has a seat at the decision-making table. Each team member is provided a level of trust which motivates the team to do their best. Coming to work each day is a joy for this award-winning group of tourism professionals.
