Courtney Williams, Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce CVB
National Sales Manager
Working as national sales manager for the Montgomery Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitors Bureau for more than a year, Courtney Williams says learning the industry has been her biggest challenge. “You’re not selling a product,” she says. “You’re selling a city.” Her best professional moment came a few months into the job when she landed her first big group. “They were planning on going to another city, but they chose Montgomery after coming to visit. It felt really great,” she says. Early into her hospitality career, Williams recognizes the importance of meetings and events. “People are always going to be meeting,” she says.
