The Bermuda Tourism Authority has named a new chief executive officer, the organization announced Thursday.
Bermudian native Kevin Dallas has been named to the post, set to begin his term in January 2017 following the completion of current CEO Bill Hanbury’s term.
“The Board of the BTA is pleased to welcome back home our next Chief Executive Officer Kevin Dallas,” said David Dodwell, chairman of the Bermuda Tourism Authority. “Kevin is a proud Bermudian who distinguished himself from a talented slate of candidates. His unique combination of global credentials and experience encompasses market development work for South African Tourism, as well as consultancy and executive roles in product and marketing within the digital domain.”
Dallas said he was “thrilled to return home for this opportunity.”
“Having lived and worked not only in Bermuda’s core Boston, New York and London markets, but also across Europe, Asia and Africa, I can honestly say that Bermuda has a unique and special place in the world,” he said. “I look forward to using my experience as a traveler, tourist and global executive and my passion for our island to deliver the next chapter for Bermuda’s tourism product.”
