TDC Announces New Interim President

Last February, it was announced that Ernest Littles, president of the Tourism Development Company of Trinidad & Tobago (TDC), tendered his resignation.

“We deeply appreciate his years of dedication to forwarding the mission of tourism and hospitality for Trinidad & Tobago and we are grateful for his many substantial achievements,” said George Stanley Beard, chairman of the TDC.

Lara M. de Sonpere, divisional manager, legal and administrative, and corporate secretary to the Board of Directors of the TDC has been named Interim President.

“The TDC is reviewing its structure to ensure alignment with its mandate and this is expected to be completed within the next two months,” added Beard. “In the meantime, Ms. de Sonpere will ensure the entire Trinidad & Tobago team of the TDC as well as the overseas representatives will go forward with their strategic plans.”
