Rosecita Jeffers, a former member of the St. Kits & Nevis Ministry of Tourism management team, has been appointed CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority. A native of St. Kitts, Jeffers has operated her own special events management and tourism business on the island for the past four years.
"Mrs. Jeffers is well suited to lead our tourism authority as we strive to develop a more proactive organization that is focused on the competitive needs of the marketplaces, as well as the needs of our tourism stakeholders and local people," said Senator Ricky Skerritt, the minister of state in the ministry of tourism, sports and culture. "Her entrepreneurial spirit combined with her extensive knowledge and understanding of our island’s tourism product are qualities that will be invaluable in her position. Her appointment is further evidence of our government’s commitment to empowering local people and cultivating local leadership in the tourism sector."
