NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

There's a new man in town promoting the attractions in Nacogdoches.

Carl Watson is the new executive director for the Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The seasoned tourism director and his wife were visitors to Nacogdoches about three years ago.

They said then, “Nacogdoches would be a nice place to retire one day.”

“And so when I saw the opportunity to apply for this position, I thought there is no better opportunity than now, so we're very excited to be here,” Watson said.

Watson was selected from a pool of 30 applicants following a reorganization of the CVB.

The former director resigned.
