Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association recognizes industry excellence
The CHTA distinction honors private sector executives who demonstrate excellence in leadership and management
The Caribbean Supervisor of the Year distinction, honoring private sector hospitality employees who display excellence in leadership and management, went to Luis de Jesus, Security Supervisor at El Conquistador, the Waldorf Astoria Resort in Puerto Rico. De Jesus, who currently oversees 25 employees, previously served as an engineering supervisor. He was cited for his team spirit, reliability, and willingness to act as a resort ambassador, across several departments.
"These Caribbean professionals are incredible ambassadors of Caribbean tourism, exemplifying the spirit of excellence that is required for us to remain competitive in our industry," said Patricia Affonso-Dass, CHTA's president, as she congratulated this year's recipients and thanked industry stakeholders at all levels for their daily commitment to strengthening the Caribbean guest experience.
"Let us ensure that we continue to applaud the men and women who shine their light every day, sharing with the world what wonderful Caribbean hospitality is all about," she stated.
