Visit Spokane Welcomes Jim Cacabelos

Jim-HeadshotVisit Spokane is pleased to announce that Jim Cacabelos has joined the sales team as Director of National Accounts, a new position that is based in Seattle.

Jim, a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) and Meeting Professionals International (MPI) board member, brings a wealth of invaluable experience to the position.

"Jim has the experience and the track-record that we were looking for when we made the decision to open an office in Seattle," said Keith Backsen, Visit Spokane Vice President of Sales and Services. "Having a top sales person in Seattle will give us more opportunities to meet with meeting planners face-to-face, an important step in the selling process."

Jim has a diverse background in sales at a variety of Seattle-area hotels and destination marketing organizations. Most recently, he was a sales manager at the Edgewater Hotel in Seattle.

"Selling for a city that I used to see as a competitor is an exciting advantage," said Jim. "I'm thrilled to be a part of the team at Visit Spokane and plan to use my deep knowledge of the Northwest to make a major convention and meetings impact in Spokane."
