The executive director of the Cayman Islands Tourism Association, Jane Scaletta, will leave her post by the end of this month.
Ms. Scaletta resigned last week after serving the nonprofit organization for two-and-a-half years. She is taking a new job as general manager for destination management company AlliedPRA in Orlando, Florida.
“It is an honor to be considered as general manager to a company that is clearly growing in the Orlando area,” said Ms. Scaletta. “It also gives me the opportunity to be with my family, who are all located near Orlando. So it really is a blessing in disguise for me and a chapter of my life I am excited to write.”
CITA President Kenneth Hydes said, “On behalf of the CITA board, we certainly wish her all the best,” he said. “She helped shape CITA; she has also helped to shape the tourism industry in the Cayman Islands.
“Jane has been very instrumental working with the board to shape the direction of CITA. With her departure, she will be missed by us.”
Ms. Scaletta said the decision was not an easy one for her. “The Cayman Islands has been my home for almost 10 years and I have fallen in love with her. I’ve been representing tourism in the Cayman Islands for the past two-and-a-half years at CITA and truly believe we are the best island in the Caribbean.” According to CITA, the position of executive director will be advertised as early as next week.
