Chairman of the board of Tourism Trinidad Janelle Penny Commissiong is to meet with the company's staff at 11 am today to officially inform them of the shake-up at the organisation.
On Monday, Commissiong fired the CEO of the Tourism Trinidad Ltd Camille Campbell after just six months on the job. This has led to confusion at the State board and several directors have objected to the decision to fire the CEO.
This development comes even as the Caribbean Tourism Organisation recorded a fall in tourist arrivals to this country and stakeholders reporting economic distress.
Tourism Trinidad Ltd was one of two companies formed in 2017 after the closure of the Tourism Development Company. A separate company, the Tobago Tourism Agency, was formed to manage the affairs on that island.
However, on Monday Commissiong fired Campbell citing poor performance and a failure to protect the organisation from risk, acting in a manner which called into question her credibility and intentionally misrepresenting the board’s views to employees.
