Walton County Commissioners have now officially hired a new Tourist Development Council Director.
They have signed a contract with Jim Bagby to take over the position. Bagby has held the job on an interim capacity since mid-May.
That's when county commissioners selected him as their number 1 choice.
Bagby is a local, who' experiences include 24 years in the united states army, a councilman for the city of Destin, and 10-years as the Town Manager in Rosemary Beach.
Bagby has been involved in several committees in Walton County and the Destin area including beach re-nourishment.
Bagby replaces Dawn Moliterno, who stepped down after almost 3-years on the job.
