Grenada Tourism Authority Names New CEO


The Grenada Tourism Authority has named a new chief executive officer.

The GTA has appointed Patricia Maher as its new top executive, a role which will begin Dec. 19, according to GTA Chairman Rodney George.

“The board of directors are pleased to welcome Ms. Maher as CEO of the GTA in December. She has years of experience in business management, marketing, and tourism that will prove beneficial to our organization,” George said. “Leading the GTA is a great responsibility, accountable not only to the board of directors, the Minister of Tourism, and the Government, but also to the people of Grenada.”

Maher succeeds former CEO Rudy Grant, who was recently appointed as the new CEO of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association.

Maher is a former country manager for Digicel Grenada Limited, and has previously served as general manager for Go Caribic Tours and destination manager for the German LTU Group of Companies.

“I am both humbled and thrilled to lead the Grenada Tourism Authority forward during its next phase of growth and expansion. My passion for Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique and my expertise in tourism and technology will serve the organisation well as we grow and adapt to the changing trends in the industry,” Maher said.
