Hilton Worldwide Brings Barbados Talent to the Island of Trinidad

October 23, 2012

MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide today announced the appointment of Leroy Browne as general manager of the 418-room Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre.

Browne, a Barbados native, has been acting as interim general manager at Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre since August 2012. He joined Hilton Worldwide in 2007 when he took on his most recent previous role as director of operations at the 350-room Hilton Barbados Resort, overseeing the operations team including food and beverage, front office, housekeeping, engineering, security and recreation. During his time at the beachfront Hilton Barbados Resort, Browne was also responsible for ensuring compliance with brand standards, as well as driving consistency and improvement in customer service results.

"With nearly three decades of hospitality experience in Barbados, we couldn't be happier to have Leroy take the helm of Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre - one our most historic properties in the region celebrating its 50th anniversary this year," said Danny Hughes, senior vice president, Caribbean, Mexico and Latin America for Hilton Worldwide. "Leroy has done an incredible job in Trinidad already, quickly adapting to the hotel, settling in to lead the team, and introducing himself to the local community."

Prior to joining Hilton Worldwide, Leroy formed part of the operations team at some of Barbados' most recognized resorts, leading food and beverage as well as hotel operations, and overseeing major renovation campaigns.

Browne holds a human resources management diploma from Barbados Institute of Management and Productivity, and is currently enrolled in the company's internal general manager program to promote career growth.
