Tourism Whistler board welcomes two new members

Two new faces have joined the board of Tourism Whistler.


Scott Carrell of Affinity Sports has replaced Craig MacKenzie as the Director-At-Large.

MacKenzie had been a part of the board since 1991.

The second new board member is Christopher Ford of Tournet who is now the Non-Hotel Lodging Director.

Ford replaces Rosemary Cook who served on the board from 2002 to 2004.

The election results from the advance mail and online voting were announced at the Tourism Whistler AGM on Wednesday, May 12.

Both Diana Lyons, Hotel Lodging Director, and Kevin Toth, Single Owner Hotel Lodging Director, return to the board by acclamation.

Last week however, Toth resigned as general manager from the Fairmont Chateau Whistler for personal and family reasons. He remains on the board for the time being.

The Board of Directors will choose their chair at the first monthly meeting following the AGM. That meeting will take place on Tues. May 25.

Rick Clare is the current chair, as well as the Commercial Director, and has been for many years.
