Spero has been at the helm of the South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority for the majority of its existence.  He is the voice for the hospitality industry in the South Shore and enjoys all that the area has to offer, especially the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan.


43,000. That’s an estimate of how many hospitality jobs are dependent on the travel and tourism sector in the South Shore. The jobs range from the owner of your favorite restaurant, the Superintendent of the Parks Department, the managers and housekeepers at a hotel, dealers at the casino to the lifeguards at the waterpark.
