With his leadership I am confident sports tourism will significantly expand and enhance the Hampton Roads economy,” said Bryan K. Stephens President and CEO of the Hampton Roads Chamber as the Chamber welcomes Wesley Hall as the new Executive Director of the Hampton Roads Sports Commission.
"I am excited to return home to Virginia to promote, market, and grow Hampton Roads into a premier sports destination; building the region into a great place to live, work, and most importantly, play," said Hall.
