PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - The Board of the Supervisory Council of the St. Maarten Tourism Authority (STA) has taken note of the press releases issued by the office of the Minister of Tourism, Economic Affairs, Transport and Telecommunication on the “selection and appointment” of Rolando Brison as Interim Director of the STA.

Following the placement of the advertisement for the vacancy of the Interim Director position, earlier this year, the Supervisory Council of the STA was requested, by the current Minister, to be on the selection committee. The Supervisory Council did exactly so and offered its evaluation of all candidates, following the interviews. It should be mentioned however, that not all six members of the selection committee independently scored Brison highest, as has been reported in the press releases. It was furthermore agreed, by the selection committee, that the top three candidates were to be vetted after which a final decision would be made. Nonetheless, an offer was presented to Rolando Brison by the Minister prior to any vetting process.
