Director of Government and Industry Affairs| World Travel & Tourism Council
Helen Marano joined WTTC as Vice-President of Government and Industry Affairs in January 2012. Helen brings a seasoned perspective in government relations from her years of leadership of the U.S. government’s national tourism office in the U.S. Department of Commerce, using her private sector experience. Her oversight of the U.S. statistical system for Travel & Tourism enables her to speak authoritatively on the impact of the industry in a large economy, and globally. Her leadership and engagement in intergovernmental organisations (APEC, OECD, OAS, UNWTO) provides the global platform for coordinating efforts that improve and protect the sustainability of the industry.
