Former Tourism Howard Chin Lee is now chairman for Tourism Trinidad Ltd (TTL) following the sacking of Miss Universe 1977, Janelle Penny Commissiong-Chow.
In a release today, the Tourism Ministry announced Chin Lee's appointment, as well as eight new board members. The directors will serve for two years.
Guardian Media Ltd reported exclusively that Commissiong's tenure came under scrutiny after she fired new TTL CEO, Camille Campbell after just six months.
The dismissal allegedly came without warning with claims Campbell did not perform as expected.
The board then collapsed when nearly every member resigned over Commissiong's management style.
In the release, Tourism Minister Randall Mitchell thanked the outgoing board for its contribution.
