Andrew Hertz, president and general manager of the Miami Seaquarium, is slated to become the new chair of the Visit Florida board of directors.

He will take over the position from Tammy Gustafson, senior director of sales integration with Universal Orlando Resort, when the new fiscal year starts July 1.

Hertz, whose family sold the Seaquarium earlier this year to California-based Palace Entertainment, a subsidiary of Spanish theme park operator Parques Reunidos, has worked at the Virginia Key attraction since 1996.

William Talbert III, president and CEO of the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, will remain on the executive committee of Visit Florida, the state’s tourism marketing corporation.
