Carolyn James Becomes Acting CEO of St. Kitts Tourism Authority

Carolyn James, currently the Director of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority’s office in Canada, has been appointed as the organization’s new Acting CEO.

Most recently, James spearheaded the creation and implementation of a new Destination Specialist Program for travel agents in North America that provides online training and booking incentives. She also headed arrangements last year for the introduction of seasonal weekly non-stop service to St. Kitts by Air Canada through a new relationship with Air Canada Vacations. James is the longest serving market specialist of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority and has worked in collaboration with various government departments on both St. Kitts and Nevis, as well as private sector entities, to promote Caribbean tourism in Canada and worldwide.

“Mrs. James is well-suited to lead the St. Kitts Tourism Authority at this time, as we intensify our efforts to grow the St. Kitts brand and drive more targeted business to our destination,” said Alfonso O’Garro, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority.

James has relocated from Canada to the home office in St. Kitts while simultaneously maintaining her role and responsibilities as Director of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority for Canada.  She holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of the West Indies and a Master of Science degree in Tourism Administration and Marketing from Strathclyde University in Glasgow, Scotland.
