Cassie Busdeker is the new Executive Director of the Greater Bridgeport Convention & Visitors Bureau. She assumed her duties on July 1, 2019. Busdeker is no stranger to Bridgeport. She grew up in the community and today calls it home as well. She is a 1990 Bridgeport High School graduate and a graduate of West Virginia University with a degree in English.

“I grew up here and now my husband Brant and I are raising our kids here. Bridgeport is our home and I am so excited to embrace this new opportunity,” said Busdeker. “I want everyone to experience all the wonderful things Bridgeport has to offer.”

Busdeker is also no stranger to promoting Bridgeport and the entire region. For the better part of the last 20 years she’s served as the creative services director at WDTV.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at WDTV,” she said. “I’ve been able to work with a lot of creative people there and within the community and I am looking forward to working on the creative front in this new position.”

Drew Pomeroy, CVB Board Chairman said he and the board are looking forward to seeing Busdeker in action.

“We’re glad to have Cassie aboard. She’s certainly an asset already to Connect-Bridgeport (serving early on their advisory board) and the CVB in helping promoting events under that banner,” said Pomeroy. “We’re excited to see what she’s going to be able to do for the organization.”
