Caribbean Tourism Organization Names Ricky Skerritt as Chairman
The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) named Ricky Skerritt, minister of tourism and international transport for St. Kitts and Nevis, as its new chairman. Mr. Skerritt, who replaces John Maginley of Antigua & Barbuda as chairman, will serve a two-year term.
“These are challenging times for tourism around the world, but no sector is more critical to our region’s economic future,” said Mr. Skerritt. “With the right leadership strategy I am confident that we can achieve our goal of establishing the Caribbean as the world’s premier warm-weather travel destination, with genuinely caring people and world class products.”
The vote took place on the eve of the CTO’s Leadership Strategy Conference at which delegates from more than 30 countries will discuss regional issues including security, taxation, new market development, aviation, destination branding and the use of social media to build tourism.
