The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) is pleased to announce the appointment of our new Director of Tourism, Mrs. Karen Bevans.
Mrs. Bevans joins the BTB after 25 years of service with the Belize Telemedia Limited (BTL). She began her career at BTL as an Administrative Officer, then, was promoted to Manager of Administration, Human Resources, and Public Relations, followed by General Manager of Marketing and Administrative Services, which later changed to include further responsibilities of Business Development, Marketing and Sales, and then named the Head of Business Development, Marketing and Public Relations. After a reorganization of the company, she was appointed the General Manager of Business Development and Marketing, and then became the acting Chief Operations Officer, before her latest position as the Chief Operations Officer. She, therefore, brings with her a wealth of knowledge in administration, marketing, public relations, sales, and management, having held the various positions in her ascension to Chief Operations Officer.
She holds a MSc degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix, and a BSc degree in Management and Psychology from the University of Ozarks in Arkansas. Her past position allowed her to attend several international training sessions in Executive Management, Leadership, Public Relations, Business Development, and Marketing, which gave her vast exposure and allowed her to network with international firms.
“We are very happy to welcome Karen Bevans to the organization. Her impeccable reputation precedes her and we certainly expect to see great things from her. The industry has been excelling in both overnight and cruise arrivals, and our rebranding of the country has given us great international exposure. We look forward to working with her as we continue to build momentum,” commented Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Civil Aviation, Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr.
Mrs. Karen Bevans assumes her position as Director of Tourism on Wednesday, April 9, 2014.
