Monday morning Destination Door County Board Chairman Todd Trimberger announced the forthcoming departure of the organization’s President and CEO Jack Moneypenny. He will remain in his position through July 14th, but stated that he believes it is time to part ways with Destination Door County due to the organization’s structure and direction change. Moneypenny was hired as President and CEO in 2007 just as the county-wide room tax was taking shape. During his years as CEO, the county’s annual room tax receipts more than doubled. He initiated the county-wide car charging network which now has over 30 charging stations around the county. He also provided much assistance in crafting a plan to build a new welcome center next to the DDC’s current building in Sturgeon Bay, a plan put on hold due to the pandemic just months before the scheduled groundbreaking in May of 2020. Trimberger extended his thanks to Moneypenny for all he’s done with DDC through 13+ years of substantial changes. The organization’s leadership is now conducting a nationwide search to find a new CEO in the coming months.
