Grenada is expected to officially announce the appointment of Barbadian tourism specialist Petra Roach as that country’s new director of tourism today.

This was revealed in a newscast by the Florida-based CARIBUPDATE News Service which covers the Caribbean.

According to the news report, the announcement will be made in St George’s, making Roach the third CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) since it became a statutory body seven years ago.

Roach is the third successive non-Grenadian to head the authority and the second Barbadian to hold the position. The first was CEO of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association, Senator Rudy Grant, who was also the first head appointed to the GTA.

Roach resigned from the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. yesterday after 26 years. Her final day will be June 30 and she said it was “time to move on” but remained confident in the ability of the newer people in the industry to carry on.
