As there are many owners who are trying to get out of their timeshares nowadays along with the negative feedbacks regarding such vacation porperties, one of timeshare’s leading exponents is campaigning to improve its profile among the business community in Britain and Spain after being appointed to a key role within the British Chamber of Commerce in Spain or BCCS. Jennie Thompson, the managing director of Malaga-based Leisure Solutions S.L. and a board member of the Timeshare Association (timeshare owners and committees) also known as TATOC, has been appointed vice president of the BCCS’s Regional Committee of Andalucía. She is also an elected member of the BCCS Governing Council.
The BCCS has links with a number of key bodies. That includes the DTI, Foreign and Commonwealth Offices, international embassies, consulates and more. Meanwhile, Thompson hopes the two-year post will enable her to communicate a positive message about the timeshare industry. According to her, she is aiming to use her two years in office to raise the profile of the timeshare industry within the BCC, which is a network of global and international commercial chambers with links to a variety of other major bodies.
She added that she’s determined to educate her BCCS colleagues and foster an understanding that timeshare is a respectable industry and encourage not only more people to consider doing business with them, but more businesses to enter the industry.
On the other hand, the BCCS was founded in Barcelona in 1908 to provide networking and information services not only for English companies wanting to do business in Spain, but Spanish companies wishing to do business with the UK. Thompson initially served as the Regional Committee Secretary, covering cities such as Malaga, Seville and Granada, and was surprised by the variety of businesses operating in an area best known for its vacation spots.
