Stewart, Green Leaving Convention & Visitors Bureau

Important changes are happening at the Tulsa Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Suzann Stewart, executive director and senior vice president of the Tulsa Convention & Visitors Bureau and Tulsa Metro Chamber, confirmed she plans to announce her retirement.
And Tom Green, CEO and founder of Diversafest LLC, has left the position of director of downtown relations for the CVB.
Stewart has been the highly successful icon of the CVB for two decades, leading efforts to grow Tulsa’s presence as a tourism, event and convention destination.
She is the founding president and CEO of the Tulsa Sports Commission and a member of the board of directors of the Tulsa Hotel and Lodging Association.
Green, one of the Tulsa Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 for 2009, is one half of the dynamic duo responsible for the summer downtown music festival Dfest, which showcases national, regional and local talent, drawing crowds from all over the country.
He and his wife, Angie DeVore-Green, started Diversafest, the company that produces the Dfest Music Conference and Festival, eight years ago.
They recently announced plans for an event center, which features a concert hall, bar and dance club, at First Street and Detroit Avenue.
Under the newly formed IDL Quad Group LLC, Green will open the IDL Ballroom, Electric Circus and Enso bar, with a planned opening of Enso slated in mid- to late-October.
Green confirmed he is no longer with the CVB but would not comment. He said he will concentrate his efforts on Dfest and the opening of the new venues.
