Sergeant Mark Byrne Honored by the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau
November 3, 2011
Central Precinct Motorcycle Sergeant Mark Byrne was presented with October’s Music City Hitmaker Award for his extraordinary service to Nashville visitors.
A group of Canadian tourists nominated Sergeant Byrne after he approached them as they stood on a downtown street corner studying a map. He assisted the visitors with parking, restaurant suggestions and entertainment options. They described Sergeant Byrne as a true gentleman and the friendliest person in Nashville. “The best part of my job is helping folks from all over the country and the world enjoy their stay in Nashville”, Sergeant Byrne said. “We love our visitors here and I look forward to coming to work every day.”
Sergeant Byrne is eligible for the Hitmaker’s annual award presented each May during National Travel & Tourism Week to one of the monthly winners.
The Music City Hitmakers program is supported by Wright Travel, Regions Bank, the Nashville Business Journal and the Greater Nashville Hospitality Association. To learn more about Hitmakers, go to www.visitmusiccity.com/hitmakers.
