Richmond, Va. – The Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association (VHTA) announced today that Seth Petersen has joined the Association to maintain and develop communication strategies. Seth Petersen brings a wealth of marketing experience, having spent the last three years developing and executing digital marketing strategies for Pulsar Advertising.

His marketing experience and ability to step in and quickly learn the systems in place that make our association run have already resulted in significant changes he’s implemented in just his first few days. I’m confident that Seth will play a key role in VHTA’s strategic approach and growth.”
