Pennicook leaves Jamaica Tourist Board

Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) director of tourism Paul Pennicook is leaving the organisation after completing his term of office in the position. He is joining Air Jamaica as senior vice-president of sales and marketing, effective 1 June. The search is currently underway for a replacement for Pennicook. Pennicook was credited by JTB chairman Dennis Morrison as having played an outstanding role in the JTB’s work over the past three years. The industry has enjoyed growth over the past years and saw the best ever winter season in 2005-2006. The JTB will continue to work in close partnership with the industry to ensure that the good performance continues, said Morrison. Jamaica minister for tourism, entertainment and culture the Honorable Aloun N’dombet-Assamba commented: “We wish Paul the utmost success as he joins the Air Jamaica team and I have no doubt in my mind that he will endow them with the same level of energy, creativity and dynamism that he brought to the Jamaica Tourist Board.” Chairman Morrison added: “Paul will continue to work closely with the tourist board to build on the relationship with Air Jamaica as a crucial partner in the success of Jamaica’s tourism. There has been close consultation between the JTB and Air Jamaica about this appointment and both organisations are committed to working together to make sure there is a smooth transition. A search to find an appropriate replacement will take place immediately.”
