Hermann businesswoman Tammy Bruckerhoff has been selected as the city’s new director of tourism and economic development.
One of about a half-dozen applicants for the post, Bruckerhoff will succeed Eli McDonald, who left the position in mid-January to pursue other interests.
Bruckerhoff was hired during a special session Monday morning of the Hermann Board of Aldermen.
Bruckerhoff is a graduate of Hermann High School and the University of Missouri-Columbia.
She was employed as a marketing specialist for the Missouri Department of Agriculture, Business Development Division, for more than 12 years.
Bruckerhoff also served as the environmental public health specialist for the Gasconade County Health Department. Most recently, she launched a retail business in Hermann.
“Miss Bruckerhoff is passionate about marketing Hermann and has a strong interest in helping businesses,” said Mark Wallace, administrator of the city of Hermann. “She will be an asset to the city and to the region.”
Bruckerhoff will begin her duties with the City of Hermann on Feb. 16.
