Bournecoast MD on BBC Select Committee
Bournecoast’s Managing Director, Des Simmons has been selected to sit on Bournemouth Borough Council’s select recruitment committee.
Established in 2006, the ground-breaking Bournemouth Tourism Management Board (BTMB) was set up to “Develop and assist delivery of a shared vision for a prosperous tourism industry in Bournemouth that will enable the Borough to develop as a market leading resort.” This is the Country’s first board that truly represents all sectors of the visitor economy including the often overlooked, but vital, services of transportation, entertainment and retailing.
The BTMB has a very different tourism partnering formula that holds the members collectively responsible for the town’s destination management.
Des said: “It is an honour for the Bournemouth Tourism Management Board to be recognised as an integral part of the town and its crucial part in identifying the right candidate for a job. The new Chief Executive will have a great deal of influence as to how this town progresses forward and it is important that they understand how tourism is a vital part of that progression”
Des’s family have run Bournecoast since its inception in 1960 and now sees them celebrating over 50 years in the tourism market. They are the local market leaders and have offices in Southbourne and Westbourne.
