BTA execs losing jobs

By the end of this month the Barbados Tourism Authority, will be gone and two entities – the Barbados Tourism Management Inc. and the Barbados Tourism Product Authority – will be in place in three weeks time.
As a result also, 11 of the 14 executives who constituted the BTA’s executive management in Barbados will be gone.
Outgoing chairman of the BTA, Adrian Elcock, told the SUNDAY SUN his board went about the task of shaping a new way forward, “without fear or favour” to try in a very “subjective way” to get Barbados’ tourism to a different level.
Elcock, whose term as chairman has officially ended, has also opted not to go forward with the new structure and said he had so advised Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy. However, he will remain at the helm to see the new bodies in place.
He said he believed that the job that they had to do was done “fairly and equitably”. (GC)
