BHTA bidding CEO Sue Springer farewell by year-end

Chairman of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA), Sunil Chatrani, has announced that Sue Springer, the Association’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will be demitting that position by year-end.

At the helm for some 15 years, Springer is set to pursue other career opportunities.

However, Chatrani explained that Springer will play a key role in the recruitment drive for her successor as well as with the orientation and handover process. He said a Search Committee was in place to fill the position during the coming months, allowing adequate time for a smooth transition before Springer leaves.

Chatrani also noted, 

“Sue has brought a high level of dedication, passion, and skills to the table over the years, which has served the Association well.  We are extremely appreciative of the years of service she has provided to the organisation and the industry and she will certainly be missed."

Springer, for her part, said, “During my tenure with the BHTA I have been fortunate to work with a dedicated and knowledgeable group of Presidents, Directors, public and private sector leaders, and volunteers.  I have learned much from them and have been impressed over the years by their willingness to contribute time and resources to making our tourism industry and our nation a better place.

“While I shall certainly miss many aspects of my work, I shall be leaving confident both in the stewardship of the BHTA’s volunteer leadership and the skills and commitment of our staff.”
