HONOLULU -- The Waikiki/Oahu Visitors Association appointed Les
Enderton executive director. He will organize a new headquarters
for the group, which previously was managed by The Kiely Co.
Enderton operated his own Honolulu advertising agency, Enderton
& Associates Inc., specializing in travel accounts, for the
past 12 years. Before starting his business, he was marketing
director for Aloha Airlines.
The Waikiki/Oahu Visitors Association, the Oahu chapter of the
Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau, announced in May that it
planned to open an office and was searching for an executive
director and full-time staff.
David Carey, WOVA president, said that the decision was made
because of the expanding needs of the group.
The Kiely Co., a Honolulu travel sales and marketing company,
had managed the association under contract for nine years.
