Buccament Bay Resort appoints first Vincentian General Manager

For the first time since the Buccament Bay Resort opened in 2010, Harlequin Hotels and Resorts has appointed a Vincentian as the luxury resort’s general manager.

Gailene Collins-Crick, who has been on staff since the resort opened, was promoted to the post in August, which coincided with the resort’s {{more}}fourth anniversary celebrations.

“I’m very ecstatic at being able to be a part of the development of Buccament Bay Resort… to see it go forward, and assist in the development of my country,” enthused Collins-Crick.

A Buccament Bay Resort spokesperson said that Collins-Crick had impressed the resort owners with her “consistently excellent management and organizational skills.”

“Gailene has been an essential and valued member of the management team for years,” he explained. “When the opportunity arose, she was the obvious first choice to assume the role.”

The spokesman further pointed out that the majority of the resort’s staff is from St Vincent and the Grenadines, and that Buccament Bay Resort does its utmost to “promote personal and professional development.”

“It was only a matter of time before a talented and experienced Vincentian like Gailene became GM.”

Described as a “passionate Vincentian”, this is not the first time that Collins-Crick has represented her country by exhibiting exceptional standards. In 1977, she was crowned Miss SVG, and went on to represent the island state at the 1978 Miss Universe Pageant.

The Buccament Bay Resort spokesman added: “Mrs Collins-Crick takes great pride in ensuring the Resort maintains its image as one of the very best in the industry.”

Buccament Bay Resort is located on the Leeward coast of the island, and is the flagship property of Harlequin Hotel and Resorts.(JSV)
