Burbank leaving Alabama Tourism Department

After eight years, Scott Burbank is leaving his position as the Chief Financial Officer with the Alabama Tourism Department to accept a position as the Deputy Director of the Office of Program Integrity with the Alabama Department of Public Health.

“It is difficult to overestimate the impact Scott has had on this department,” Tourism Director Lee Sentell said. “During his time with Tourism, Scott has literally coordinated funding for thousands of tourism organizations and events across Alabama. This includes his work during the past two years in helping to launch a program to oversee a Legislative tourism grant program.

“He has been an extremely valuable member of this department, and we will miss him. We thank him for his contributions and wish him well at his new position.”

Burbank’s last day with the Alabama Tourism Department will be on July 15. Burbank will join the Alabama Department of Public Health on July 18.
