OAK BROOK – Skip Strittmatter has announced her plans to retire from the DuPage Convention and Visitors Bureau in July, but this may change depending on the timeframe for naming her successor, according to a news release from the visitors bureau.

Strittmatter plans to remain available as an adviser to the new director, as needed, to ensure a smooth leadership transition, said the release.

Strittmatter celebrated 20 years with the visitors bureau Dec. 6, 2013. When she joined the bureau as executive director in 1993, it had a three-person staff and was housed in a small county office. Today, the bureau employs 12 full-time staff members, augmented by part-time contractors and interns.

During her tenure, the bureau’s budget has grown from $50,000 to over $2.5 million, according to the release.

A search team has been appointed by the board, which includes Strittmatter, and an executive search is underway to determine her replacement.
