Taste the County CEO Jeremiah Mackenzie has resigned his post to pursue other interests and to spend time with his family.

Taste board of directors vice-chair Lynn Sullivan has taken on the position as interim CEO until a hiring search commences next April.

“The board thanks him for all his efforts during the past year and a half in promoting our region and building awareness for Prince Edward County as a great tourism destination,” says Cynthia Peters,  chair of the board. “Jeremiah has made some significant steps forward in generating new media attraction and website presence for our community.”

Over the last decade, Sullivan has participated in a number of Prince Edward County tourism initiatives as both a member and a stakeholder. For the past two years, she has served as chair of the Prince Edward County Winegrowers Association and on the board of the Festival Players of Prince Edward County. She will be stepping down from both boards in her new temporary role with Taste the County. She will also be taking a sabbatical from her day-to-day work as operations manager at Rosehall Run Vineyards to help maximize awareness of Prince Edward County as one of Canada’s leading travel destinations.

“Lynn will work closely with the board, members, the Prince Edward County Community Development Commission, and regional and provincial stakeholders in helping to shape the strategic direction of tourism for our community,” said Peters.

The History of Taste the County

In 1998, a group of community entrepreneurs came together to identify the need for an organization to assist with marketing and economic growth of Prince Edward County, hence the birth of Taste the County™. Taste the County™, under the sponsorship of the Prince Edward County Chamber of Tourism & Commerce and the Prince Edward Federation of Agriculture, accessed funding from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food through their Rural Job Strategies program. In 1999, $500,000 was committed to Taste the County™ over a three-year period to assist with the organization’s objectives. As of January 1, 2002 Taste the County ™ is a self-sustaining, not-for-profit organization. In June of 2002 Taste the County™ incorporated. In September of 2004, Taste the County™ was trademarked.
