Schilling-Wheeler will take over for Les Enderton, who will retire at the end of 2016 after 20 years as the head of the OVB.

Schilling-Wheeler has been the OVB's senior director of sales and marketing since 2005.

"I've had the great privilege of working alongside Noelani for my entire tenure at OVB, and I am certain you will not find a person with more passion and knowledge about Oahu and how it should be marketed to travel consumers worldwide," Enderton said.

Schilling-Wheeler joined the OVB in 1997, and she is a member of the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International, Pacific Asia Travel Association and the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii.
