Guam - Gerry Perez is no longer the Guam Visitors Bureau General Manager. Perez confirmed with KUAM News that the board accepted his resignation effective today.  When asked if the board asked for his resignation, Perez replied, "I'm stepping aside to accommodate the Governor's wish to have a new general manager."

After accepting his resignation, the board appointed Joann Camacho as the acting general manager.  Perez will remain at the agency as a consultant advisor to the board until November when his contract is up.  He has been working at the Visitors Bureau under contract for the last several years.  Perez will still give the general manager's report at tomorrow's GVB general membership meeting, where Governor Eddie Calvo will be the guest speaker. 

The meeting will be held at the Sheraton at 11:30 Friday morning.
