Deputy CEO appointment at Seychelles Tourism completes the top team


(Posted 26th October 2013)

The line up at the top of the Seychelles Tourism Board is now complete with the appointment by President James Alix Michel of Ms. Nathalie Didon as Deputy Chief Executive last Friday.

The various changes became necessary when former CEO Elsia Grandcourt left for Madrid to take up her new position as Director for Africa at the United Nations World Tourism Organization, in short UNWTO. Sherin Naiken at the time was appointed as new CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board. Since then was Rose Marie Hoareau seconded to the tourism board by the private sector as Director of Marketing and with the vacant position of Deputy CEO now filled, the trio at the top can now move forward in keeping the momentum up for the archipelago’s continued marketing juggernaut.

Chairman of the Board of STB remains Mr. Barry Faure, who incidentally on the day the announcement was made also launched the formal marketing and sales campaign for the new Ile Soleil, another manmade island – similar to the now hugely successful pioneer Eden Island – aimed to offer space for the growing demand for land to develop. Located off the eastern shores of the main island of Mahe, Ile Soleil will comprise both residential as well as commercial zones, including an area set aside for tourism purposes. Covering over 12 hectares, any development on the island will follow an agreed master plan which makes the use of state of the art technology mandatory, such as using solar panels to supplement electricity generation and solar powered hot water systems. Parties ready to invest in some of the commercial ventures can now apply for the allocation of plots up to 23rd of December via their website

Watch this space as Seychelles truly remains Another World.
