TICO continues search for new president

TICO continues search for new president

The Travel Industry Council of Ontario (TICO) continues the search for a new President/CEO, almost one year after current president Michael Pepper announced his pending retirement.

TICO’s Board of Directors is encouraging interested and qualified applicants to submit their applications (consisting of a resume and cover letter) to the executive search firm, Odgers Berndtson, by Sept. 22.

Pepper has led the organization since its inception in 1997 and is planning to retire when a successor has been hired and a transition is completed. He had previously announced his retirement, originally planned for July 2014, last October.

More information on the position is available from Amanda Bugatto at

In other TICO news, Bradley Talan Edelson plead guilty to two counts of operating as a travel agent without registration, contrary to the Ontario Travel Industry Act.

Edelson, who operated in Toronto and elsewhere in Ontario, faces a total of $3,000 in fines.

A charge against Ariel Santillan was withdrawn at the request of the prosecutor.
