The Hawaii Tourism Authority has contracted with Honolulu-based executive search and staffing firm Bishop and Company to assist in its search for a new president and CEO, the agency announced in a press release.
Current head of the agency Chris Tatum announced in early June that he will be retiring on Aug. 31 after holding the position since December 2018, following a 37-year career with Marriott International.
The HTA Board of Directors, a 12-member group, will make the final determination on who will lead the agency as the state's tourism industry recovers from the damage of the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
Bishop and Company is now accepting and reviewing applications, and an HTA committee consisting of HTA board members and community leaders will then review the finalists for the position and make a recommendation to the full board.
