After more than four years working as the Lawrenceburg-Anderson County Tourism Commission’s executive director, Kendall was hired in December 2021 as executive director of the Danville-Boyle County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Kendall is a native of Madisonville and attended Western Kentucky University. After graduating with a print journalism degree, Kendall worked for more than 20 years at the Dothan Eagle newspaper in Dothan, Alabama, where he started out as a reporter and worked his way up to become the managing editor.
When Kendall and his wife Shannon decided to return home to Kentucky that also included the desire for a career change and tourism was the perfect fit. Kendall played a crucial role in establishing Lawrenceburg’s first tourism office and worked to help promote and grow all of the tourism-related events and locations throughout Anderson County. He’s excited to now be doing the same in Danville and Boyle County
