Since Jamaica’s former Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett was not reappointed in late December, many in the industry were wondering what would become of his right hand man, Director of Tourism and Chairman John Lynch.
Lynch isn’t going anywhere.
The popular Jamaica tourism figure will stay on as director of tourism, but will be replaced as chairman by Dennis Morrison.
New Minister of Tourism Hon. Dr. Wykeham McNeill officially named his Board of Directors this week. Members include Paul Pennicook, president of International Lifestyle, Inc., the worldwide representative of SuperClubs Resorts, and former director of tourism; Wayne Cummings, former president of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association; Evelyn Smith, current president of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association; Carolyn Wright, Kevin Hendrickson, Marc Melville and Zein Issa-Nakash, the daughter of John Issa, the founder of SuperClubs Resorts.
