With the election of a New Chairman and Vic-Chairman for the Bali Tourism Board (BTB) on February 12, 2007, ([See: Management Shake Up at Bali Tourism Board]), a search has commenced for a suitable Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to head the organization on a day-to-day basis.
The new BTB CEO, who will form the centerpiece of a new management structure for the organization, will answer to BTB's Chairman who will coordinate working requirement of the nine stakeholder organizations comprising the grouping.
Tough Challenges Ahead
Seen as essential to the success and survival of BTB, the new CEO will have to somehow be able to meet a number of perplexing criteria, including:
▪ He or she will have to meet a fit and proper test - meaning they must be a respected and experienced senior tourism professional able to accommodate the diverse aspirations of the nine-stakeholder organizations who "own" BTB.
▪ Ideally, he or she should be prepared to work for little or no money until funding sources can be generated to pay a salary.
▪ He or she should posses excellent fund-raising capabilities to secure the funds needed to eventually run, staff and finance BTB's activities.
▪ The ideal candidate will have an extensive understanding of Balinese history and culture, able to implement the organization's commitment to "cultural tourism" and "people-based tourism."
Interested parties, prepared to work for minimal wages (at least initially) and possessing a strong commitment to play a central role in the recovery of Bali's tourism industry may apply to the Bali Tourism Board.
