Sandals appoints new regional director
IN KEEPING WITH its expanding presence in the Eastern Caribbean, Sandals Resorts International (SRI) has appointed a new regional director to its Eastern Caribbean office in St Lucia.
On July 1, SRI welcomed Andre Dhanpaul who was elevated to the office following a successful stint as general manager for Sandals Negril in Jamaica.
Dhanpaul brings to the regional office his uniquely systematic management style and financial background. He replaces Jeremy Jones who held the position for several years.
Described as a man with a keen eye for detail, the new regional director is also considered a great fit for the ever expanding Sandals EC. He has worked in Caribbean hospitality for more than 25 years.
“It has been a great welcome to the Eastern Caribbean. I am looking forward to continuing the growth of Sandals in this part of the Caribbean. Some of the world’s most beautiful countries are here,” Dhanpaul said.
Chief executive officer for Sandals Resorts International Adam Stewart said: “With the addition of Grenada and Barbados and more on the horizon, Andre and his EC team is tasked with building the brand’s presence in the region, with a view to mapping and executing further gains.”
In the meantime, former regional director Jeremy Jones has been elevated to Sandals Resorts International head office in Jamaica where he is now tasked with the role of supporting the group-wide responsibilities of the company.
“We are extremely proud of both gentlemen,” Stewart said. (PR)
