Mr. Russell Miller states that, “Mrs. Churchill’s appointment comes at a time when the Grand Bahama Tourism economy is beginning to see significant increases in its overnight passenger numbers. Coinciding with the increases in passenger counts into the destination, our overall hotel inventory has increased with the opening of the 500-room Memories Resort and increased airlift from the Canadian Markets. We are also looking forward to the addition of new seasonal airlift from 8 US cities (Memphis TN, Raleigh NC, Louisville KY, Cincinnati OH, Birmingham AL, Baltimore MD, Virginia and Columbus OH) starting this May.

"Mrs. Churchill will be responsible for the coordination and execution of all support functions of GBITB sales, promotions, and marketing.
