Madden-Greig appointed to lead Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association

Respected Caribbean hotelier Nicola Madden-Greig has been named the brand new president of the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA).

The award-winning Jamaican businesswoman was elevated to the place through the annual basic assembly.

She will serve the ultimate yr of a two-year time period vacated by Pablo Torres, who tendered his resignation as he assumed broader regional tasks with Hilton International.

Madden-Greig recognised Torres for his work as president, thanking him “for stepping up to the plate to lead the association at a time of extreme crisis”.

She lauded his management through the pandemic, and wished him properly in his new function as space vp of operations – full and focus service motels within the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America for Hilton.

In accepting the presidency, she stated know-how and sustainability will likely be two of her high priorities as she embarks on a three-year time period.

Declaring that “Caribbean tourism must not only survive, but thrive,” Madden-Greig harassed the significance of higher collaboration, establishing new partnerships and strengthening present ones because the trade grapples with the continuing risk of local weather change and the persevering with challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Looking to the longer term, she stated, “Climate change still presents an existential threat to a sustainable industry,” and added that know-how has vastly modified how tourism works.

“From the way we tackle our tasks to how we communicate with co-workers, suppliers, and current and prospective customers, technology has created ripples of change that have impacted companies in every industry,” she stated.

Madden-Greig, who’s at present the group director of selling and gross sales for the Courtleigh Hospitality Group, brings 20 years of tourism trade expertise to her new function with CHTA.
