Marie Walker, the former Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the United States and Canadian markets, has died.

Walker was appointed by the Antigua & Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) Administration in January 2015 as part of a move to amalgamate the US and Canadian travel markets.

A year later, while in the first year of a two- year contract, she was sacked.

The sacking of the Jamaican national prompted the Opposition United Progressive Party (UPP) to question government’s hiring practices.
