Bob Jameson, president and CEO, Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau
Bob Jameson isn’t being obsessive about this but he likes things on his desk “just so,” which isn’t surprising since that’s pretty much how the city he promotes as president and CEO of the Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau prefers it, too. Even after a day filled with meetings, with running in and out, with grabbing and tossing, Jameson’s desk looks clean and efficient. Not that he’s being obsessive, of course.
Big blue book: “Take notes from different meetings that I have, and it allows me to flip through them and work from that.”
Emotional photo: Taped to the computer, a black and white shot of his oldest son, Bradley, who passed away in 2007.
Fort Worth Cookbook: Developed for marketing purposes for the first Food & Wine Festival, held last March. “It was really, and it continues to be, a great giveaway. People are just so into food and talking about the culinary scene that exists here in Fort Worth.”
Empty outbox. Certainly shows how busy he’s been. “Either that or I haven’t been very productive.”
Miniature billboard: A shrunken version of the billboard from last summer’s campaign.
Fort Worth Destination Award: Honor from the premier third-party meeting planning groups recognizing Fort Worth as a U.S. Destination Partner of the Year.
Stationery: Hand-written notes for personal correspondence. Sometimes. “It’s become a kind of catch-all, I suppose.”
Quote: “Fort Worth is every right-thinking Texan’s home-away-from-home. That was the perception of Fort Worth from the publisher of Texas Monthly. It’s just a great way to think about the city.”
