(Tumon, Guam) The Guam Visitors Bureau announced today that former senator and Governor Calvo’s special assistant for external affairs Telo Taitague has been officially selected as its next Deputy General Manager.
As a seasoned policy maker and government expert, General Manager Nathan Denight chose Taitague to help him lead the Bureau as the public and private sectors work together to achieve the goals of the Tourism 2020 plan.
“Telo is a welcome addition to our GVB family. With her years of experience as a former lawmaker and a private business owner, she has the skills needed to help us continue to diversify arrivals and enhance our visitor experience,” said GVB General Manager Nathan Denight.
Taitague most recently served as the governor’s liaison to the Guam Legislature, Judicial Branch, Mayors Council and Foreign Affairs. She was elected to the 30th Guam Legislature and recognized by the U.S. Congress for passing legislation mandating the use of ultra low sulfur diesel fuel. Additionally, the George Washington High School graduate was the director of the Women’s Bureau where she advocated for young women incarcerated for a better life. She also attended the University of Guam and North Carolina Fayetteville Technical Community College in the paralegal program. Taitague has been a professional musician and vocalist for over 23 years and is the owner of Telophoto, Inc.
“Tourism is the lifeblood of our economy and GVB continues to play a vital role in promoting everything that makes our island a great place to live, work and visit. It’s important for us to maintain our cultural identity to promote what sets us apart from the rest of the world,” said Taitague. “I look forward to working with General Manager Nathan Denight, the staff of GVB, Governor Calvo and the legislature to propel the tourism industry forward.”
