Grenada re-appoints former tourism director


ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada (eTN) – Grenada’s new administration has made significant changes to the island nation’s tourism administrative team and has re-appointed William Joseph to the post of director of tourism. Joseph had left the post three years.

Joseph replaces Joslyn Sylvester-Gairy, who commenced a new three years contract five months ago but which was terminated by the current administration which was elected into office on July 8, 2008.

In a statement issued following her departure, Gairy said: “I demit office, satisfied, that the hard work, dedication, and sacrifice of the Board-members and staff, with whom I served at the Grenada Board of Tourism, contributed significantly to the progress made during my three-year tenure with the organization.

“My prayers are with those, to whom this vital pillar of our economy is now entrusted.

“I wish them nothing but success in the fulfillment of their duties, in the face of the many challenges ahead. I remain as always, ready to serve my country, whenever the need arises,” she said.

Joseph is a former public servant with extensive experience in the tourism sector.
