In honor of her dedicated service, creativity and resourcefulness with Visit Lubbock and within the Texas travel industry, Amy Zientek, director of sales for Visit Lubbock, was presented with the Rising Star Award by the Texas Travel Industry Association (TTIA) on Monday, Sept. 23, 2013.

The TTIA Rising Star Award was created to recognize young professionals who have demonstrated leadership and commitment to the Texas travel industry through their accomplishments. The award was presented to Zientek at the association's annual Texas Travel Summit Conference, held this year in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Zientek is touted as the ideal representative for the travel industry due to her consistently pleasant demeanor, tackling her job with dedication and a smile. She has been instrumental in improving the relationships between Visit Lubbock and local hotels and finding ways to make the travel industry better both in her community and statewide.

"Amy has shown a level of dedication above and beyond the scope of her job," John Osborne, president & CEO of Visit Lubbock, said. "In my years with Visit Lubbock, I have not had an employee that exhibits such motivation, dedication, trustworthiness, talent and self-discipline as Amy. She is well respected among city and community leaders."

Zientek has been instrumental in Visit Lubbock achieving several awards, including facilitating Visit Lubbock's Accreditation application to DMAI, Lubbock Chamber's 20 Under 40, CollinsonMedia Rejuvenate 40 Under 40 and Southeast Tourism Society 40 For the Future. She serves on the Texas Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus (TACVB) Board of Directors and has brought new ideas to both TACVB and Visit Lubbock over her tenure with the organization. Aside from her dedication to her career, Zientek has always been very active in the Lubbock community.

"We are lucky to have so many bright and dedicated young leaders in the TTIA membership. Amy is an inspiring example and truly a Rising Star in our industry," said David Teel, president & CEO of TTIA, said.
