“The board of directors for Oman Tourism Development Company (Omran) announces that for personal reasons, James Wilson has submitted his resignation as the Chief Executive Officer.
“The board of directors has accepted Wilson’s resignation and has appointed Engineer Saif bin Ali Al Hinai as Acting Chief Executive Officer, with immediate effect,” according to the statement on the company website.
