Two former Downtown Bryan Association staff members are set to continue their efforts in a new capacity with Destination Bryan, the community’s new destination marketing organization.
Katelyn Brown and Abigail Noel, both formerly with the Downtown Bryan Association, will join the Destination Bryan team beginning October 1. Brown joins the staff as Community Engagement Manager, and Noel will step into the role of PR & Communications Manager.
Brown will be tasked with continuing the increasingly important relationships with Downtown Bryan business owners while expanding the role to serve the entire city. Brown said, “I am extremely invested in the continual growth of Downtown Bryan as a destination for locals and tourists alike, and look forward to establishing new relationships and partners within the community in this role.” Brown will continue to take the lead on Downtown Bryan’s staple events, including First Fridays and Texas Reds Steak & Grape Festival.
Noel will foster valuable relationships between the organization and the media, while maintaining the voice Downtown Bryan has worked to develop over the past several years via social media, e-newsletters, and other communications channels. “I am excited and looking forward to managing communications with our local media and community partners to amplify the voice of all attractions in Bryan,” Noel said.
The two join previously-announced Destination Bryan staff members John Friebele, Morgan Key, and Chris Riggins. “We’re excited to have Katelyn and Abigail on our team,” said Friebele, the organization’s Executive Director. “They’re going to play an important role in maintaining the growth and success they’ve already contributed to in Downtown Bryan while expanding that effort throughout the entire community.”
Destination Bryan is tasked with marketing the community as a tourism destination. The team plans to promote attractions like Historic Downtown Bryan, Lake Walk Town Center, Aggieland Safari, Messina Hof Winery & Resort, and Texas A&M University among many others. Destination Bryan’s goal is to stimulate economic impact throughout Bryan while telling the city’s story as a vibrant community that is rich in culture and proud of its heritage and diversity.
