Rob Robison, a member of the selection committee charged with finding a replacement for Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission Executive Director Gerald Breaux, says two applicants were removed from contention late Friday for lack of experience. Robison declined to name them, saying they had not yet been notified.

The selection committee, which also includes Hilton General Manager James Thackston, businessman Thomas Rogers and Holidome General Manager Ed Buchert, met briefly Friday, the deadline for applications, and took the resumes home to review them over the weekend.

Robison says the committee will meet after LCVC’s 3:30 p.m. meeting Wednesday to decide if it will again narrow the field or conduct phone interviews with the remaining 19 candidates.

Twenty-one applied for the job:
Todd Mouton
Ben Berthelot
Susan Holliday
Mark Allemond
Renee Areng
Robert Boudreaux
Jessica Smith
Nolan Bernard
Cory Dale Cart
Leon Steele
Timothy J. Richard
John Claude Arceneaux
Mark D. Mouton
Allison Dickerson
Amy Broussard
Patrick Mould
Paul Eason
Julie Bordelon
Joey Babineaux
Hunter Trahan
Dave Domingue

The timeline on the selection process remains tentative. The committee is set to meet April 9 to set up the process for phone interviews with the candidates, and on April 18 will schedule personal interviews. The committee hopes to make an offer May 1, with employment to begin no later than June 1. The full LCVC board will have to approve the choice.

Breaux will help with the transition process for about a month, as his last official day is June 29. He is retiring after nearly 31 years on the job.
