Laury Ellen Poland keeps moving north in furtherance of her career.
The former head of marketing and promotions for the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board's Bureau of Marketing, Communications, Branding & Design, on Tuesday assumed the position of president of Finger Lakes Wine Country, the tourism marketing association.
"From being a frequent visitor myself, I know how much the destination has to offer," she said in a news release.
Before working with the Pennsylvania LCB, Poland was vice president of Church Publishing from 2006 to 2011 and director of Morehouse Church Supplies from 2004 to 2005. She ran her own public relations, marketing and advertising firm from 1998 to 2004.
She is a native of Rockville, MD, who earned a bachelor's degree in journalism and public relations from West Virginia University.
Poland succeeds Morgen McLaughlin, who left New York in April to become executive director of the Santa Barbara County Vintners' Association in California.
Finger Lakes Wine Country is located at 1 West Market Street in Corning. Phone: (607) 936-0706 .
