A longtime leader of the Fargo Moorhead Convention and Visitors Bureau is stepping aside. For the past 21 years Cole Carley has served as the President and CEO. Today he announced plans to retire in late June.

During his tenure Carley spearheaded the creation of the visitors center and tourism capital construction grant. But now at the age of 62, Carley says he wants more time for his family and himself.

Cole Carley – FM CVB President and CEO: “We've worked hard together both for our destination and our stakeholders, but as that famous musical philosopher George Harrison once said all things must pass and so now it's my turn to pass the torch of the CVB to somebody else.”

In the future, Carley says he would like to serve as a public speaker or a tourism consultant.
