The former chief executive of the Bermuda Hotel Association has been appointed to the Bermuda Tourism Authority board of directors.

Stephen Todd has filled the hotel sector vacancy created on the board when Paul Telford became chairman.

He said he welcomed the opportunity to “work directly with the enthusiastic team at the BTA as we collectively strive to build on the ever-improving positive results in overall visitor arrivals year-over-year”.

Mr Todd said his focus would be on “overall growth as we seek to position Bermuda as a destination of choice for business and leisure visitors”.

Mr Todd’s term on the board began in December.

Mr Telford said Mr Todd had “hit the ground running” with the tourism quango and had been “a welcomed addition around the table”.

Mr Todd brings 35 years worth of experience in the financial services field to the position.

He is also a past president of the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce and Sandys Rotary Club.
