A former head of communications at the Bermuda Business Development Agency has been appointed to a top job at the Bermuda Tourism Authority.
Rosemary Jones is the BTA’s new director of corporate communications and strategy.
She said: “It’s a real honour to join the BTA’s talented team and help build on its already impressive achievements.
“Travel and tourism have always been big passions of mine, so I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to tell our story, encourage national dialogue, and support the industry and its stakeholders as we take Bermuda’s tourism economy to the next level.”
Ms Jones will replace Glenn Jones, who was promoted to chief experience development officer in April.
Her responsibilities will include oversight of the National Tourism Plan and media communications. Ms Jones will join the BTA on July 1.
Ms Jones served as the head of communications and marketing at the BDA for four years. Her responsibilities included national PR plans, content production and campaigns.
Kevin Dallas, the chief executive of the BTA, said: “Rosemary’s reputation for excellence precedes her and we’re thrilled to bring her on board at the BTA.
“We know she will be a great addition to the team and will help us continue the momentum of moving our National Tourism Plan forward in a passionate and sustainable way as well as connect with relevant stakeholders to ensure all voices are heard.”
Ms Jones earlier worked as a journalist for a variety of media, including Te Royal Gazette, Broadcast News Toronto, The Bermudian magazine and Bermudian Business magazine.
