Like Oakes, she has a passion and pride for our area. She graduated from Randall H.S. and attended Texas Tech University. Gutierrez started in early March.


"These hires bring two very experienced people to our top-notch staff. With so much happening in Amarillo, from downtown development to hotel construction across the city to exciting new options among our attractions, we need the best people we can find to tell the Amarillo story," Dan Quandt, Vice President of the Amarillo CVC, says.
