Burrows selected for top-level training at Hamilton Princess

Jaquan Burrows has been selected by the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club as a trainee manager in the rooms division of the hotel’s leadership development programme.

During the 18-month initiative, Mr Burrows will spend time with each team that contributes to the hotel’s rooms offering, learning the ropes of every aspect of management.

The three six-month components will see Mr Burrows work in the areas of front office, night audit, bell services, concierge and royal service, Fairmont Gold and housekeeping and laundry.

At the end of the programme, the hotel said, he will graduate to a management role in the department.

Mr Burrows has a certificate in international hospitality management from Holland College in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

A certified tourism ambassador, his previous work experience includes a role as housekeeping supervisor at Coral Beach & Tennis Club, caddie at Port Royal Golf Course’s caddie shop and internships at The Hotel on Pownal Urban on Prince Edward Island and at the Culinary Institute of Canada in its Lucy Maud dining room.

Mr Burrows said: “I am very proud to have been chosen for this incredible opportunity with the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. The hotel is iconic in Bermuda and I can think of nowhere better to learn.

“I also want to take this opportunity to remind young Bermudians how important it is for us to seize opportunities wherever they present themselves. You never know where they might lead. I look forward to a long career at the Hamilton Princess and with Fairmont and to promoting the best of Bermuda to our guests.”

Tim Morrison, the hotel’s general manager, said that Mr Burrows “has quickly established himself as an enormously energetic, friendly and engaging member of the team and will, I am extremely confident, go on to do great things”.

Roydell Neverson, director of rooms, said: “I am so pleased that Jaquan Burrows has been chosen for the room’s leadership development programme. Throughout his application process, Jaquan distinguished himself by showing a palpable passion for the hospitality industry that combined with his work ethic, experience and education — at such a young age — speak volumes.”
