PEORIA, Ill. — Enjoy Peoria announced the hiring of Joseph (JD) Dalfonso as the new President and CEO.

Dalfonso served the past three years as the Communications Director of Congressman Darin LaHood (R-Ill).

This announcement comes after former President and CEO Don Welch announced his departure in April. Welch served seven years as the president and CEO.

Dalfonso, a central Illinois native, says he’s excited to work with business leaders and the community to promote the area as a travel destination.

“We have great opportunities to contribute to the economic development here in Central Illinois, as well as for the state of Illinois. The incredible professionals here and the staff that surrounds us, and our partners here in the community can help drive us to continue that great success,” Dalfonso said.

Dalfonso will take over the position in August.
