Deputy Director of the BVI Tourist Board (BVITB), Rhodni Skelton has been appointed to the post of Acting Director of Tourism at the organisation
The appointment became effective on Monday, May 25 and will run until June 30, at which time the Board expects to select a substantive candidate.
A media release from the BVITB said Skelton will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the operations of the Tourist Board, including its overseas offices and marketing agencies.
“After expressing our thanks to Mrs [Sharon] Flax-Brutus for her years of service, we commenced the application process for the post of Director of Tourism. In keeping with organisational procedures, Mr Skelton, our Deputy Director, has been appointed to act in the position until this process is completed,” Chairwoman of the BVI Tourist Board, Kenisha Sprauve said.
Days after giving six months notice about her intended resignation, the Board decided that Flax-Brutus’ resignation must take immediate effect.
Premier Andrew Fahie, who has since requested a report on the matter, said Flax-Brutus was paid off for the remaining six months she had intended to stay.
