Saint Lucia’s Bay Gardens Resorts has appointed travel professional Kelly Fontenelle-Clarke as its representative in the United States market.
The Atlanta-based representative has more than two dozen years of marketing experience, including many years working for her homeland with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board and the newly-formed Saint Lucia Tourism Authority.
“We are very happy to welcome Kelly Fontenelle-Clarke to the Bay Gardens family, as we seek to enhance our presence in the important United States market,” said Sanovnik Destang, Executive Director of the family-owned portfolio of resorts in Saint Lucia. “As Kelly grows our influence among U.S. tour operators, travel agents and meeting planners, we expect to meet and surpass our sales goals in the years ahead.”
Destang described Fontenelle-Clarke as having a proven track record for driving success and achieving top-tier results in travel and tourism marketing. “Her expertise is largely unmatched and we are honored to welcome her to the family.”
Fontenelle-Clark played an integral role in the Saint Lucia Expert Loyalty Program, which reached more than 20,000 agents over five years, and developed the Romance Specialist Program, which helped to strengthen Saint Lucia’s reputation as a leading romance destination.
