CRESTVIEW — Peter Mayer Advertising of New Orleans will take over promoting Okaloosa County as a top tourist destination.

County commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved a three-year contract with the company.

“This is a great day for Okaloosa County tourism,” said Dan O’Byrne, director of the tourism development department. “The (selection) process, although slow at some times, provided absolutely the right outcome.”

The county began negotiating a contract with Peter Mayer in October.

The 45-year-old firm has 200 employees and offices in New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Under the contract terms, the company will charge $115 an hour for new product development services and no more than $36,465 in base services each month.

Peter Mayer will handle a variety of promotional needs for the county, including account management, public relations, website management and social media content.
