HBAA to step up recruitment drive for permanent Executive Director

The Hotel Booking Agents Association (HBAA) is looking to take on a consultant as Executive Director. The announcement follows a review, which concluded an industry figurehead was required at the association’s helm to help drive objectives and industry positioning.

Since the previous Executive Director, Peter Ducker, left the association earlier this year, Juliet Price, the 2011 Chair of the HBAA, has helped out in an interim capacity which the association deemed appropriate for the ‘transition period’.

Chris Parnham, Chair of the HBAA (pictured), said: “At the beginning of the year, Peter left some big shoes empty, which, since being appointed interim Executive Director, Juliet has been filling extremely well. But, having reviewed the structure of the HBAA Executive Director and its objectives, we feel that the role should be made a permanent one.

“The Executive Director is the only paid Board position within the association, and the enhanced role reflects the sweeping changes we are driving through this year. It presents the successful candidate with a unique industry position, voice and opportunity to make a difference.”

The association says any prospective candidates must be able to demonstrate significant industry experience at a senior level. The full job description is available from: executiveoffice@hbaa.co.uk
