VLN’s Carreon honored by Destinations International ’30 under 30′

April 27. Rodrigo Carreon, who started his career in the tourism industry three years ago as a marketing intern at Visit Lake Norman, has been named one of Destinations International’s “30 Under 30” award winners.

Even before graduating from UNC-Charlotte, he accepted a full-time visitor services and marketing coordinator position during his sophomore year. He oversees all visitor center operations, curates the website and manages social media.


“As our industry moves toward recovery, we are especially excited to announce these young professionals as they are the future of the travel and tourism industry,” said Don Welsh, president and CEO of Destinations International.

Destinations International looks for future industry leaders with a diverse set of backgrounds and perspectives.
