Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Friday she has appointed Glenn Eden as the new chair of Choose Chicago, the city’s tourism agency. Eden is an executive vice president at the public relations firm Weber Shandwick. He succeeds Desiree Rogers, who has chaired the 35-member board of Choose Chicago since 2013. “I can think of no one more qualified than Glenn to boost Chicago’s brand and image as a global destination to visit, meet and do business,” Lightfoot said in a press release. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to join Mayor Lightfoot and Choose Chicago to elevate the city’s unique value proposition to the tourism, hospitality and meetings industry and drive inclusive economic growth throughout Chicago,” Eden said. He said he intends to “introduce millions of business and leisure travelers to the city I love, with its dazzling lakefront, thriving downtown and most importantly, dozens of vibrant and diverse neighborhoods.” At Weber Shandwick, Eden has specialized in technology, financial services, manufacturing and government clients. David Whitaker continues as president and CEO of Choose Chicago.
