The Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO), has announced that Dr. Jean S. Holder, the former secretary general and an honourary
member of the Board of Directors, will represent the regional tourism body on the
Board of Directors of the Cricket World Cup 2007.
The CTO ministers and directors meeting at the recent 28th Annual Caribbean
Tourism Conference (CTC-28) in St. Thomas, USVI, asked Dr. Holder to continue
representing the CTO on the board which is overseeing preparations for the
2007 International Cricket Council (ICC)‘s Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean.
“We are pleased to announce that the former secretary general, Dr. Jean

Cricket World Cup 2007 board of directors,” said Vincent Vanderpool-Wallace,
who recently replaced Dr. Holder as the region’s top tourism public servant.
“Having served as CTO’s secretary general for 30 years, Dr. Holder has a keen
understanding of the industry’s needs for this major event and we are
confident that he will carry out the mandate given to him by the ministers and
board of directors effectively,” Mr. Vanderpool-Wallace added.
