    Eight months after taking the helm of Niagara Falls Tourism, Joe Fardell is leaving the tourism industry’s marketing agency to take his own career in a new direction.

    Wayne Thomson, chairman of the organization that promotes the Niagara Falls hospitality industry, confirmed Fardell resigned Monday as managing director.

    “Mr. Fardell has decided to take this time to evaluate his current goals and future,” Thomson said, reading from a letter sent to members of Niagara Falls Tourism.

    Fardell submitted his resignation Monday, Thomson said, adding he didn’t know it was coming. Fardell was not available Tuesday to comment on his departure.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    There’s a new captain at the helm of Niagara Falls Tourism.

    And he’s no stranger to stormy seas. Joe Fardell, the agency’s new managing director, has come full circle in his 25-year career, having started working for a charter bus operator here in the mid 1980s.

    Originally from Hamilton, Fardell has worked both in management and as a consultant, and has held a number of prominent positions, including that of president of Tourism Calgary.

    While he has enjoyed getting to know the diverse communities to which his career has taken him, Fardell said he has always wanted to return to his southern Ontario roots.

    For someone in whose expertise is marketing premiere destinations to the world, Fardell said there’s no better place to be than the Honeymoon Capital to take his career to the next level.
