Barthet Brown's departure comes just three months after UK & Ireland director of the Malta Tourism Authority, Alex Incorvaja, left to return to Malta.

During her 18 year career with the Malta Tourism Authority, Barthet Brown has promoted the destination throughout the UK, as well as leading The Oysters, a group of London-based National Tourism Organisations and Convention Bureaux.

The Oysters enjoyed its annual Oysters Summer Party last week, which Barthet Brown has helped organise over the last three years.

Before joining the Malta Tourism Authority, Barthet Brown worked in the press office at the British High Commission in Malta.

Barthet Brown said: "During my time, I have seen a steady growth in the number of events held in Malta and Gozo and I am extremely optimistic that it will continue to increase over the next few years.

"My time with the Malta Tourism Authority has been an amazing experience and an incredible learning curve and I look forward to what the next chapter will bring."

Malta Tourism Authority has worked closely with C&IT, having sponsored the A List for three years running. As part of the sponsorship, the Tourism Authority invited a selection of the A List on a fam trip to see the destination, which will take place once again this October.
