Jamaica Tourist Board director of tourism steps down

Jamaica Tourist Board director Paul Pennicook has stood down at the end of a three-year term of office.

Pennicook, who returned to the JTB in July 2014, was given the mandate to lead and oversee the promotion of Jamaica’s tourist industry to ensure optimum visitor arrivals and increase the island’s share in the marketplace.

He served in a similar role between 2003 and 2006.

Pennicook’s strong relationships with industry partners were important to ensuring that the destination remained at the forefront of the travel industry.

The director of tourism vacancy has been advertised and a search committee is in place to find a suitable candidate to fill the post.

Deputy tourism sales director Donnie Dawson will serve as acting tourism director in the interim.
