AtlantisAnother five employees of Atlantis Paradise Island recently completed the resort’s Manager Trainee Programme, which takes participants through a series of rotations throughout the various departments and challenges of hotel operations to ready them for advancement opportunities.

In recognition of their accomplishment, senior executives at the resort hosted the group to a certificate ceremony.


“This is a very special programme for us and we feel it is the right kind of investment to make in our people to not only help keep this amazing resort successful for generations to come, but to help further develop and advance some of the youngest and brightest talent in the hospitality industry,” said senior vice president of human resources Karen Carey at the ceremony.

“It is the knowledge, the experience, the expertise and the potential that lie within each of you that has gotten you to this point, and we celebrate that. Through the training you’ve acquired with this programme, you have now had a taste of what it means to hold positions of great responsibility and now that you have completed the programme you are required to further prove yourselves. We expect great things from you in the years to come and hopefully you will become the leaders of our great organization and take us into the future.”

Keenan Carroll, Philece Huyler, Krystal Morley, Jeffrey Rodgers and Renbert Mortimer have now completed some 15 months of training, working with various general managers, division and department heads, as well as other leaders throughout the Atlantis resort. They have since been placed in their respective management roles.

Speaking on behalf of the new group of Atlantis managers, Carroll said that the journey was well worth the effort.

“It’s been an uplifting, developing time of growth for us and an experience that I’m sure none of us would ever want to forget and will treasure. We are grateful for everything and we hope that moving forward we will be able to instill the same sort of passion in others that you all have in us, and we hope that we don’t let you down.”

Also in attendance was Atlantis president and managing director George Markantonis. In congratulating the group, he noted the importance attached to their roles in the resort’s future.

“You are the future for us. When you say you hope you won’t let us down, we know you won’t because you would not be standing here right now if we had any doubts about that. Your responsibility now is to make sure that the people below you, through osmosis, get up to your level, so take this seriously because we do.”

Carroll, Huyler, Morley, Rodgers and Mortimer were selected from an estimated 190 persons who applied for the programme.
