Richard has always been a strong leader and dedicated to promoting St. Thomas, and the US Virgin Islands. In 2009, he received the CHTA’s highest honor of Caribbean Hotelier of the Year
Now he’ll be sharing his experience and leadership skills to engage tourism throughout the Caribbean.
He’s has served on the CHTA Board of Directors for 19 years and has been a Vice President of the association for the past 10 years. Currently, he is the First Vice President and a Trustee for the CHTA Education Foundation. He is also the past Chairman of the Board of Directors of the US Virgin Islands Hotel & Tourism Association.
When Richard takes the reins in 2012, he says that his first priority will be to reach out to as many individuals in the Caribbean tourism industry as possible and build membership.
“I’m honored to lead the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association and represent its members throughout the region,” says Richard. “The Caribbean is full of diversity and unique qualities that attract visitors from all over the world.”
Our Bolongo Bay family is extremely proud of Richard, who is dedicated to tourism not only to our beautiful destination in the US Virgin Islands but to the entire Caribbean region.
Congratulations from all of us here at Bolongo Bay.
