The BVI Tourist Board has appointed Rhodni Skelton as the new Acting Director of Tourism.
The Tourist Board said Skelton’s temporary appointment is due to the absence of Director Sharon Flax-Brutus who is on vacation leave.
“In keeping with organizational procedures, Mr Skelton has been appointed to act in the position while the Director is on leave,” Chairman of the BVI Tourist Board & Film Commission, Mrs Kenisha Boynes-Sprauve stated in a media release on Wednesday.
Skelton, who has been the Deputy Director of the BVI Tourist Board and Film Commission since 2017, will now be responsible for the daily management of the operations of the organisation, including its overseas offices and marketing agencies.
He holds Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree from Northwood University in Business Management, and Marketing respectively. He also has an MBA from Wright State University in Human Resource Management and Finance, and a Master of Science Degree in Tourism and Project Management from the University of the West Indies.
Skelton is also a certified International Film Commissioner since receiving the accolade from the Association of Film Commissioners International back in 2008.
He will be the acting Director until the latter half of February 2020, which is when Director Flax-Brutus is expected to return to office.
