Bahamian hotelier Stuart Bowe, S.V.P. and G.M., Resort Operations for Atlantis Paradise Island, has been named the 2016 Caribbean Hotelier of the Year by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) at the Caribbean Hospitality Industry Exchange Forum (CHIEF) held recently in Fajardo.
Accepting the region's premier hospitality award, Bowe credited his grandmother with teaching him service and attention to detail from "cleaning up the kitchen."
Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie, in a taped congratulatory message, described Bowe as "an exemplar" to be followed by generations of Bahamians. "He is a manager cum laude, one who has brought the pursuit of excellence to his work... (and) on behalf of the people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, I salute you."
"Stuart Bowe personifies Caribbean excellence. He is disciplined and innovative and a leader who inspires generations of Bahamians and Caribbean people through his accomplishments and his humanity," said Frank Comito, Director General & CEO of the CHTA who previously served as Executive Vice President of the Bahamas Hotel & Tourism Association.
