The eastern Caribbean paradise known as Grenada is a hidden gem with offerings that can make it a repeat destination for many of your clients. But a successful destination like this does not get by on natural beauty alone, which is why a strong tourism organization is key.

To wit: the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) recently announced the appointment of its new 11–member board of directors, with entrepreneur Randall Dolland as the new Chairman. Dolland holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance, from SUNY Stony Brook in the USA. Throughout his career, Dolland has served in various tourism-related areas including as Sales and Marketing Manager for the former Flamboyant Hotel and as a director of the former Grenada Board of Tourism.

“I’m truly honored to serve as board chairman as for many years, I’ve been a stakeholder in this industry and can intimately relate to the challenges currently impacting the industry,” said Dolland in a press statement. “In this role, I look forward to partnering with all stakeholders and strategic partners to move our Tourism agenda forward.”
