A press announcement on Monday identified Monique Simon as Magens Bay Authority’s new general manager. 

“With a proven track record of driving operational excellence and promoting sustainable tourism practices ... .Monique is well-positioned to lead the Magens Bay Authority into its next phase of growth and development,” the press release stated. 

Ms. Simon previously worked as operations manager of the V.I. Department of Justice, and before that served almost 14 years as the Water and Power Authority’s customer service manager. As the Magens Bay Authority general manager, she will oversee all aspects of the facility's operations, including visitor services, conservation efforts and infrastructure development. 

“Magens Bay holds a special place in my heart and the hearts of many,” said Ms. Simon. “I am committed to building upon its rich legacy while implementing innovative strategies to ensure its sustainability and continued success.”

Ms. Simon, a Navy veteran and a holder of a master’s degree in business administration from the University of the Virgin Islands, succeeds Hurbert Brumant as general manager. Mr. Brumant is currently suing Magens Bay Authority for wrongful termination, alleging that he was forced out by the coordinated efforts of several board members for refusing to tolerate improper business practices.
