How Much Do the Top Earners at the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau Make?

2019 salaries for the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau staff, including the salaries of the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission, and not including part time workers, benefits, and payroll taxes, add up to $1,238,484.89. This money is distributed amongst 21 employees, though President Stacy Brown made $57,646.89 more than her next highest paid colleague, and just the top 5 highest-paid employees made over half a million dollars. 

Stacy Brown President 165,546.89
David Bradley Vice President Sales & Services 107,900.00
Brandy Evans Vice President of Communications 104,177.00
Kelly Wells Executive Director, SB Sports Commission 103,500.00
Pat Gill Internet/Systems Manager 64,890.00

According to studies done by the University of New Orleans Hospitality Research Center, visits to welcome centers, state parks, and casinos decreased in Shreveport in 2018. Casino revenue also decreased, although gaming revenue was heavily emphasized in the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau’s 2018 Annual Report. This report also boasts 132,837 visitors attending meetings or conferences, but gives no estimate for the total number of tourists to the area. 

Similarly, it reports that the equivalent of $43 million worth of media coverage was given to Shreveport-Bossier, and that $987 million in direct travel expenditures were generated in the Shreveport-Bossier Metropolitan Statistical Area, but gives no hard numbers in regards to total amount of earnings generated by the SBCTB directly regarding tourism or the money the Bureau contributed to tourism last year.
