The City of Greenville has its first full-time tourism director.
Jes Adam began his new position Tuesday. He was previously the owner of Adam Brothers Coffeehouse in Greenville, and served as creative director at the Greenville University’s Factory Theatre.
Before moving to St. Louis in the spring of 2018, Adam was a Greenville city councilman about three years.
City Manager Dave Willey selected Adam for the tourism job.
Jes said he is proud of Greenville because it has a lot to offer residents and visitors. He said he’s excited to build on existing events and attractions in Greenville and find new ways to celebrate who we are and get people from out of town to visit.
