The Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) is looking for a new Director of Corporate Communications & Strategy now that Rosemary Jones has stepped down to “pursue an opportunity in the private sector”.

The post is being advertised on the BTA website.

Ms Jones took up the post in 2019 with responsibility “for the implementation, on-going review, and evolution of the island’s National Tourism Plan, coordinating and managing multiple departmental teams and outside stakeholders” and the “two-way communication with local media and industry stakeholders, among other essential duties”.

BTA Interim CEO Glenn Jones said: “Rose has been a tremendous asset to this organisation.

“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 added: “It’s been a privilege to serve our tourism industry and work with the incredibly talented team at the BTA—particularly through a period of extraordinary challenge for the sector.

“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.”
