Team members reporting to the Executive Director of the Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) include sales, partnership services and convention services personnel. The Columbia SC Visitors Center, a brick-and-mortar visitor information center and retail shop falls under the guidance of the Experience Columbia SC (ECSC) DMO and includes visitor services personnel.

Team members reporting to the VP/General Manager of the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center (CMCC) includes sales, events, operations, engineering and security personnel.  

Leadership from each of these branches reports to a shared CEO, who answers to a Board of Directors. While each entity has its own director or general manager and team members, the various entities rely on a shared marketing department, finance department, human resources department and administration, which streamlines key components such as branding and messaging, budgetary organization, general oversight and benefits.
