WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)   Darien Schaefer, the leader of the Wausau Convention and Visitors Bureau, is leaving after 13 years. He's taken a similar job in Lake Geneva.

During his time at the CVA the group moved its headquarters from Cedar Creek to downtown Wausau. They've attracted new events to the area including a new hockey tournament, a marathon, and the purchasing of the Badger State Games. All those events attract outside visitors to the Wausau area.

During his 13 years, Marathon County has increased from 17th to 9th in tourism revenue in Wisconsin.

His last day in Wausau is November 15th. A search is already underway for his replacement.
