New tourism head named


Share post:

BARBADIAN WILLIAM “Billy” Griffith has been chosen to head the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. Barbados’ new tourism body.

The new entity which replaces the now defunct Barbados Tourism Authority went into operation a week ago and is currently being managed by an interim chief executive officer, Petra Roach.

Griffith, a former senior manager with Sandy Lane Hotel,  brings his vast experience in tourism back to Barbados after serving as Bermuda’s director of tourism for the past six years.

Speaking at the time of Griffith’s appointment  to the prestigious tourism position in 2008, Bermuda’s Premier Dr Ewart Brown remarked: “There are precious few people in Bermuda who understand the local tourism industry like Billy Griffith.” (GC)
