Alderney's new States representative for tourism has been unanimously elected by his fellow States members.
John Beaman's post will last until the end of the year.
Mr Beaman is already a member of several States committees and is also the representative for agriculture, open areas, environment and wildlife.
Since moving to Alderney he has worked as a lighthouse tour guide and said he would do his best to promote the island as a tourist destination.
Mr Beaman, who previously lived in the UK on the edge of the Peak District National Park, said: "I am aware of the great diversity of attractions available on Alderney, historic buildings, wildlife, fishing, sailing, golf, and painting.
"I am also aware of the shortcomings of Alderney as a tourist destination.
"I will do my best to help promote Alderney as a tourist destination and hope to work with the tourist board, the Wildlife Trust and local businesses to that end."
