“It was a pleasure to meet with him and hear his vision for a vibrant future for Bermuda’s tourism industry, and the economic opportunities for Bermudians that will enable.

“The Premier expressed his great support for tourism, and for the BTA. I look forward to working with him in 2017 and beyond.”

      Almost as amazing as the massive amount of crap that many of them talk.

    It’s so unfortunate as a Bermudian to see certain remarks being made without any true evidence of anything. This gentleman is a Bermudian, is qualified and certainLy looks to be enthusiastic about the job ahead. We should stand together as a community and support whom ever is willing to bring tourism back to this island paradise.
