We’d like to officially welcome Taylor Jones, who started last month as our new Visitor Sales and Services Assistant. Taylor’s role will be to step into the big shoes of Laura Appleby, as well as adding in the responsibilities of monitoring TripAdvisor reviews, Visitor Centre Statistics, and our Ticketmaster Retail Outlet tasks. After one month Taylor has already attended the Destination BC Network Conference, begun revamping the Airport Kiosk Stats Sheet and helped to construct our new public use computer desk and electronic device charging station.

Taylor has lived in Kelowna for the past 5 years while completing his Bachelor of Business Management at UBC’s Okanagan Campus. While completing his degree he worked at the University in several positions including a Senior Residence Advisor, Rezlead Event /Volunteer Coordinator and Housing Office Mail Clerk. When Taylor was not studying or working for the University he spent his summers working for the Bowen Island Golf Club.

Outside of Tourism Kelowna Taylor enjoys golfing on of our many local courses, exploring new Kelowna hiking trails, and cycling. This winter he also plans to learn how to snowboard. If you would like to speak with Taylor about your brochures at the Visitor Centre, our Ticketmaster Retail Outlet, or one of the many local events happening in Kelowna you can reach him at 250-861-1515 extension 208 or taylor@tourismkelowna.com.

Please join me in welcoming Taylor to the Tourism Kelowna team!
