PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB)
is thrilled to announce the appointment of Jennifer Nagle as vice
president of special projects. With over 20 years of executive
experience in the fields of marketing, tourism, and hospitality, Nagle
will play a pivotal role in leading strategic initiatives related to the
PHLCVB’s focus on citywide conventions, and sporting events, such as the
FIFA World Cup 26 (TM) and 2026 MLB All-Star Game, and international
tourism in the lead-up to and throughout 2026.

In her new role, Nagle will collaborate with PHLCVB leadership to ensure
alignment, engagement, and facilitation of key projects on behalf of the
PHLCVB and its closest partners, including the Pennsylvania Convention
Center Authority and Visit Philadelphia.

“Jen knows the PHLCVB well, and her deep-rooted connection to the city
makes her the ideal choice to spearhead our strategic initiatives as we
prepare for 2026 in earnest,” said Gregg Caren, president and CEO of the
PHLCVB. “Jen’s leadership will undoubtedly contribute to our mission of
promoting Philadelphia as a premier destination for meetings,
conventions, sporting events, and international tourism during America’s
Semiquincentennial year.”

As vice president of special projects, Nagle will serve as an internal
and external liaison throughout the planning and execution of projects
and events related to PHLCVB’s lines of business. She will serve as
the PHLCVB’s primary representative while collaborating with partner
organizations and planning strategic initiatives and programs leading
through the end of 2026.

“I am honored to take on this new role at the PHLCVB and be a part of
the team that continues to secure global events while elevating the
visitor experience,” said Nagle. “I look forward to collaborating with
our partners and stakeholders to create memorable and successful
programs that will showcase the city’s vibrant culture and hospitality.”


Nagle’s impressive background includes a previous position with the PHL
Sports division of the PHLCVB that preceded her most recent roles as
interim president and CEO and executive vice president of the
Philadelphia Visitor Center Corporation (PVCC). Since 2010, Nagle played
an instrumental part in a variety of initiatives that positively impact
the visitor experience including acquiring and growing the Philly
PHLASH(R) Downtown Loop program and opening the LOVE Park Visitor
Center.

She also made significant contributions to the Visitor Experience
Improvement Project for the Philadelphia Visitor Center culminating in
2018, and most recently secured the funding and fabrication of the
Parkway Outpost Visitor Center, a modular visitor center that will soon
open near the base of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, close to the Rocky
statue.

A South Philadelphia native, Nagle holds a bachelor’s degree in business
administration with a dual major in marketing and finance from the
University of Massachusetts at Lowell and completed her MBA at Saint
Joseph’s University. She will begin her new role on September 11, 2023.
