Major promotion for Hamilton Princess

Major Martin Wyer (RBR retired) has been appointed director of talent and culture at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.

He is responsible for leading and managing all recruitment, training, coaching, performance management, succession planning, colleague relations, as well as overseeing all aspects of administration, compliance and reporting, in accordance with Fairmont policies, procedures and mandates.

Tim Morrison, general manager of Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, said: “Major (Retired) Wyer brings to the hotel more than 37 years of experience in recruiting, onboarding and developing people.

“His role will be key in ensuring that Hamilton Princess continues to hire and retain top-quality hospitality professionals who maintain our high standards in providing the best guest experience.”

Mr Wyer said: “I look forward to getting to know the many colleagues at the hotel and a fantastic experience in hospitality at one of Bermuda’s famed resorts.”

The hotel said he would work closely with all hotel departments and their operations, guiding and assisting with the development and execution of departmental goals that support the talent and culture initiatives in the service strategy of the hotel’s strategic plan. He will also lead the recognition and celebration of hotel colleagues and promote diversity in a high-performing service culture.

As a member of the hotel’s executive committee, Mr Wyer will also provide human resources strategic support to the committee.

Before joining Hamilton Princess, Mr Wyer was the vice-president of human resources at the CCS Group Limited and TeleBermuda International.

There, he managed recruitment, overhauled policies and procedures, provided leadership and management training and implemented new systems to streamline processes and the onboarding of employees.

He had spent five years as the human resources manager at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, also providing immigration advice and guidance in employment law, and he reviewed and implemented new personnel policies and procedures.

Mr Wyer began his career in human resources in the Royal Air Force where he served more than 25 years in various personnel roles including training, coaching, mentoring, and developing the military workforce.

A Princess Hotel statement said: “During this time, he also served as a leadership instructor and flight commander, an achievement that very few achieve.

“Following his time in the Royal Air Force, Mr Wyer moved to Bermuda, and joined the Royal Bermuda Regiment in 2011, as the training officer, commissioned in the rank of Major, with direct responsibility for all regiment training, both on island and overseas.”
