VANCOUVER — Charlotte Bell has been
appointed the president and chief executive officer of the Tourism Industry
Association of Canada (TIAC), effective April 9.
announcement was made on March 16 by TIAC’s chair Andrew Lind.
“With more than 25 years of
experience in regulatory, corporate and government affairs, Charlotte is a
seasoned executive bringing a wealth of experience and proven track record of
success leading regulatory change in the broadcast sector,” said Lind.
Most recently, Bell led corporate affairs strategies
for Atlantic Lottery Corporation.
“Charlotte takes over the
helm of TIAC at a time of challenging and evolving public policy combined with
increased global competition in the travel sector,” Lind said.
“As TIAC moves forward with
a new president and CEO, special thanks are extended to Rob Taylor, who led the
organization with unwavering leadership, dedication and professionalism over
the past several months as interim president and CEO,” Lind added.
Taylor took on the interim
position from David Goldstein after his appointment as president and CEO of the
Canadian Tourism Commission last year.
