After 11 months on the job, Lucus Wales has left the Land O'Lakes Tourist Association (LOLTA) to take a job in the planning department of the City of Tweed.
During his tenure at LOLTA the tourist marketing agency upgraded its website, a key platform for its services, and carried on in the direction of his predecessor, some of which was oriented to promoting fishing in the Land O'Lakes through television programming and marketing.
“I enjoyed my time here, as short as it was,” said Wales when contacted at the LOLTA office in Kaladar on Monday (May 4). “I think we accomplished quite a bit.”
Rob Plumley, the chair of the board of directors at LOLTA, who is also the community development officer at Lennox and Addington County, said, “Wales is leaving the association in a strong position, and we are able to continue our services without missing a beat, thanks to the work of Joanne Cuddy, who continues to run the office and keep all our programs moving forward. We will be meeting as a board next week to talk about a hiring process for a replacement.”
Lucas Wales is the second consecutive LOLTA manager to leave for a job with the City of Tweed. Rachelle Hardesty took a job there in early 2014, after two years with the tourist association.
LOLTA is a member-based tourism marketing association serving tourism-related businesses in the municipality of Tweed, Lennox and Addington and Frontenac Counties.
