TORONTO — The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) has appointed Beverly Nicholson-Doty as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Boasting over 30 years of industry leadership experience, Nicholson-Doty most recently served as Commissioner of Tourism at the USVI Department of Tourism from 2007 to 2018.

She was also instrumental in engineering double-digit airline capacity growth over a 10-year period.
