Panel Considers Interim Director for Palm Beach

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, a committee to find a new chief executive for the Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau in the wake of a financial scandal involving a $1.5 million theft wants to appoint an interim director while the search goes on. The bureau's former president and chief executive, Warren "Mac" McLaughlin, retired under pressure earlier this month. The bureau's board of directors selected an eight-person search committee that met last week and recommended that an interim director be put in place because a search for a permanent replacement could take three to four months. The board of directors, which meets Friday, would need to approve an interim hire, according to the reports.
