Former Army Officer joins Jersey War Tunnels


Jersey War Tunnels has appointed a former Army Officer as Chief Operating Officer.

Joe Carnegie, who previously held senior appointments with Government and worked as a leadership and business change Consultant, will be responsible for the future strategic direction of the attraction as well as managing the overall running of the site.

“Whilst this is an incredibly difficult time for our sector, I am delighted to have been appointed to such an interesting and demanding role as part of the team responsible for an icon of the Jersey Tourism market," Mr Carnegie said.

"Looking to the future, the Board has taken the bold decision to invest in building back better and I am very much looking forward to developing and enhancing what is already a world class attraction for visitors, along with forging strategic partnerships with other elements of the visitor economy for the wider benefit of our island.”

Jersey War Tunnels Chairman, Richard Barnes, added: “We are delighted to welcome Joe to the organisation, his experience and wide-ranging leadership, planning and project management background will be vital as we plan our post-Covid recovery and future offerings.

"As with every tourism venue, the Jersey War Tunnels has suffered an exceptionally difficult 2020 but we are firmly focussed on the future and are pleased to commit to invest in the development of an outstanding visitor experience.”
