Hotensia Joseph Captures First Place – International Tourist Board!
SAINT LUCIA (May 19, 2014) – A US based Regional Marketing Manager of the Saint Lucia
Tourist Board has been named one of Travel Agent Magazine‟s 2014 Top Supplier Sales
Representatives. The prestigious and distinguished honor was bestowed on industry
veteran Hortensia Joseph by the editors of the highly influential and reputable magazine.
Joseph, who oversees the mid-Atlantic region of the US market on behalf of the SLTB, is a
beloved tourism industry insider with years of international sales experience. She was
awarded the top position (First Place - International Tourist Board) based on what the
magazine‟s editors described as “her tireless work in helping to make the tough sales day
in and day out.”
Joseph says she is deeply honored and humbled by the win, which she shares with Eusi
Skeete of the Barbados Tourism Authority. “This latest recognition will only strengthen my
resolve to continue to put my best foot forward in selling what I think is the best
destination in the world – „Simply Beautiful,‟ Saint Lucia,” exclaimed Joseph.
Head of Marketing and Sales at the SLTB and Deputy Director of Tourism Tracey Warner-
Arnold described Joseph as, “An invaluable member of Saint Lucia‟s off-island marketing
team, one that uses her extensive knowledge of the island and the industry to drive visitor
traffic to the destination.”
“While you hear about the contributions of suppliers as a whole all the time, it‟s rare that
you read about the individuals who are out there forging relationships with travel advisors
on the supplier‟s behalf,” remarked Ruthanne Terrero, Vice President of Content/Editorial
Director for Questex Travel Group.
Launched in 2009 as a division of Questex Travel Group, Travel Agent Magazine’s annual
Top Supplier Sales Reps component asks readers to nominate supplier sales reps from a
variety of industry segments, who go above and beyond the call of duty.
