New York Magazine publisher Larry Burstein yesterday announced that Jacqueline Johnson has been hired as the magazine’s new Caribbean representative. Johnson, whose appointment is effective immediately, will work with all Caribbean travel, business and tourism clients.
Johnson comes to New York Magazine with a wealth of experience in the travel industry: Johnson is the president of Jacqueline Johnson & Associates, and currently represents the Conde Nast Bridal Group and Gentleman’s Quarterly Magazine with travel clients.
With more than twenty years in the travel business, Johnson’s experience includes the implementation of marketing and media strategies for various travel accounts at advertising agencies, consumer and trade magazines.
Johnson has received a number of awards including the NOAH Award for distinguished service from the Academy of Tourism Organisation and the Tourism Medal of Excellence on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Caribbean Tourism Organization. Ms. Johnson is an active member of several travel groups including The Association of Travel Marketing Executives, Caribbean Tourism Educational Fund and the Caribbean Tourism Organisation.
“New York Magazine readers travel frequently - three out of four have valid passports - and the Caribbean is one of the destinations they visit most often,” said Burstein. “New York Magazine is a natural fit for sophisticated Caribbean travel clients, making Jacqueline Johnson a natural fit for us.”
