Glenn Jones set to leave the BTA after 'orderly transition'

Glenn Jones, the former interim CEO of the Bermuda Tourism Authority, has announced he will soon leave the BTA after more than six years.

Mr Jones said on Twitter that he decided to step away from the BTA in January, but agreed to remain at the helm until a permanent CEO was in place.

The BTA announced yesterday that Charles H Jeffers II would fill that post effective today.

Mr Jones said: “My time as interim CEO of the BTA has come to an end. I’m very grateful for the thoughtful notes of support and encouragement I’m receiving.

“It’s rewarding and heart-warming to know my work mattered to so many. Thank you.

“I trust the new BTA CEO Charles Jeffers can count on this same spirit of community to support him, his team and the mission of tourism recovery.”

Mr Jones said he would leave the BTA after a “professional, orderly transition” had taken place.

He added: “Six plus years of telling boasty stories about Bermuda, advocating for the island’s visitor industry and elevating tourism entrepreneurs have been the honour of my career. Truly.

“Chingas, what a ride it has been.”

Mr Jones joined the BTA in 2014 as the stakeholder relations adviser and was named the interim BTA CEO last March after the departure of Kevin Dallas.
