News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – The re-establishment of tourism as a genuine twin pillar of Bermuda’s economy is vital to the social and economic success of the Island. These extraordinary times demand that we acquire the precise talent needed at all levels of the organization.

A global CEO search will be launched, and this will provide the opportunity for the Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) to determine what expertise is available and how we best position the organization to discharge its critical mission on behalf of Bermuda.

An open, transparent, and rigorous process will be led by the BTA’s Board and the aim is secure the services of an individual best suited to advance the core goals of the National Tourism Plan and to see us beyond pandemic recovery to an era of Bermuda as the ultimate destination of choice for travelers.

The BTA could not have been better positioned for its next phase of growth and development without the dedication, commitment, and tireless efforts of interim CEO Glenn Jones. His steadying hand and presence have provided encouragement to the valued staff and he has been a bridge between stakeholders and local tourism economy participants during a period of great uncertainty. We owe him our collective gratitude.
