President Barack Obama

“The United States continues to wrestle with (a) legacy of race and slavery and segregation. That’s still there. We’ve made enormous strides, but you’re going to continue to see this percolate up…we have to continue denouncing it and teach our children differently.” – Barack Obama, President, United States of America (ABC News)
“I have enjoyed the job thoroughly. It has been the experience of a lifetime. We went through the world economic downturn and it was very challenging, but the country – both private and public sector within the industry – performed admirably well.” – John Lynch, outgoing Director of Tourism, Jamaica (Jamaica Gleaner)
“Known for her passion for Barbados and her innovative, strategic approach to marketing the destination, Ms. (Petra) Roach’s tireless work has led to the establishment of strong relationships across Europe, increased exposure for Barbados, and to several industry awards for the Authority. We look forward to the invaluable contributions she will make to the Barbados Tourism Authority (as Interim President and CEO) as we continue to confidently tackle challenges and create opportunities for Barbados in the global travel and tourism industry.” – Adrian Elcock, Chairman, Barbados Tourism Authority
“From the standpoint of my health, I am fine. It is just that I had this unfortunate accident with my foot, my ankle, and I am OK. Knock on wood that I would be around for a little while yet. There are many unfinished tasks.” – Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (CMC)
“Barry (Biffle) is an industry innovator in the ultra-low cost space who, importantly, also recognizes the unique opportunity we have to create the first customer friendly and customer focused ultra-low cost airline in the United States. I am looking forward to working with Barry (the newly appointed president of Frontier Airlines) again and am delighted to welcome him to Frontier in such a crucial role on our senior management team.” – David Siegel, CEO, Frontier Airlines
“The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.” – Arnold Glasow, American businessman and humorist
“I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.” – Sir Winston Churchill, former prime minister, United Kingdom
