Coastal Mississippi CEO Segarra resigns from post
Coastal Mississippi CEO Milton Segarra has tendered his resignation.
Segarra, who came aboard to lead the tourism group in 2017, said in a statement released Thursday night that his resignation is effective Oct. 15, 2021.
“I would like to first and foremost thank the team of incredibly talented and dedicated staff at Coastal Mississippi, who have worked tirelessly to promote this region as a destination,” he said in his statement. “Together, we have achieved phenomenal successes despite any challenges we have faced.
“I would also like to thank each and every member of this community that has shown overwhelming kindness and support for myself and my family since the moment we moved to Coastal Mississippi.”
The Coastal Mississippi Board of Commissioners have questioned Segarra’s pay and benefits package as recently as Thursday afternoon, although the discussion dates back to earlier this summer.
