The Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) has announced that Frank Comito, its executive vice-president for the past 10 years, will be stepping down with effect from January 30, 2014, to pursue other opportunities.
“BHTA is appreciative of the years of service which Frank has provided to our organisation and the industry,” said its president, Stuart Bowe.
“He has brought to the table a high level of dedication and skills, which have served the organisation well.”
Mr Comito added: “During my tenure with BHTA I’ve been fortunate to work with a dedicated and knowledgeable group of presidents, directors, public and private sector leaders, and volunteers.
“I’ve learned much from them and have been impressed over the years by their willingness to contribute time and resources to making our industry and our nation a better place.
“While I will miss many aspects of my work, I will be leaving confident both in the stewardship of BHTA’s volunteer leadership and the skills and commitment of our staff, and that of our sister organisations – the Promotion Boards and the Bahamas Hotel Employers Association.”
Mr Bowe indicated that the BHTA has formed a search committee, and will seek to fill the vacancy in the coming months and allow sufficient time for a smooth transition.
