Lessner Gomez Named Director, Canada For Cuba Tourist Board

Lessner Gomez has been named as the new Director of the Cuba Tourist Board in Toronto. 

With over 25 years of experience in the travel industry, Gomez says he is looking forward to working closely with all Cuba’s travel partners and the continued strengthening of relationships with Canadian tour operators, travel advisors, hotel partners and travel media to help achieve the mutual goal of increasing the number of Canadian visitors to Cuba.

“The Canadian market has always been very important for Cuba, but now more than ever it is a priority, my priority,” said Gomez. “I have worked closely with this market for years and I hope from my new position to continue supporting all our associates and strengthen relations with all travel agencies, tour operators and press to work together to increase the number of visitors from Canada to Cuba.”

Born in Ciego de Avila, near the Jardines del Rey Tourist Destination, Gomez began his career in Cayo Coco after obtaining his Tourism Diploma from the Ciego de Avila University. 

The early part of his career included working in a variety of different positions at several hotels in Cayo Coco, including the entertainment team, quality control manager and sales manager. 

In the past five years, he has been the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Tourism office in the Ciego de Avila province. Working for many years in Cayo Coco, where Canadians account for the majority of the tourist business, has enabled Gomez to familiarize himself with the needs of this market.
