She said the hotel executives are eager to hear Iakopo’s goals.

Iakopo assumed MVA managing director position last month.

“HANMI has always been one of the main supporters of MVA,” Cavanagh said, adding that their group will continue to extend support that the new managing director may need to boost the local tourism industry.

Cavanagh said Iakopo is doing well in overseeing MVA’s signature events.

As the MVA board vice chairperson, Cavanagh said she and the other board members trust Iakopo who, she added, “takes her responsibilities very seriously and is very motivated.”

Iakopo can always seek guidance from the MVA board, especially from its chairperson, Marian Aldan-Pierce, Cavanagh said.

She added that the MVA board members have extensive experience in the tourism industry, and are more than willing to assist Iakopo.

“If she needs us, we’ll be right there,” Cavanagh said.
