BTA communications head steps down
The Bermuda Tourism Authority is seeking a new head of communications.
Rosemary Jones said she was stepping down from the job for the private sector.
The BTA is advertising for a new director of communications and strategy, with duties including the steering of the National Tourism Plan 2025 in tandem with senior management, and reporting progress to the Government.
The role also includes communications with key figures in the tourism industry as well the media, the legislature, vendors and the public.
Glenn Jones, interim chief executive of the BTA, said Ms Jones had been “a tremendous asset to this organisation”.
A former journalist and head of communications for the Bermuda Business Development Agency, Ms Jones started at the BTA in July 2019.
Mr Jones added: “We’ll be hard-pressed to find a replacement who can match her work ethic or cares about the success of Bermuda tourism more than she does.
“I’m very confident she’ll be an absolute success as she moves into the next chapter of her exciting career.”
Ms Jones said that serving the island’s tourism and working with the BTA team through a time of “extraordinary challenge” had been a privilege.
She said: “Bermuda is so fortunate to have the dedication and discipline of this organisation to drive local advocacy and global marketing of our hospitality sector, and its mandate has never been more critical.
“I wish Glenn and the whole BTA team continued success in this collective national mission.”
