St. Maarten Hospitality Trade Association Executive Director Wyb Meijer was selected as the 2018-19 Association Executive of the Year.
PHILIPSBURG–St. Maarten Hospitality Trade Association (SHTA) Executive Director Wyb Meijer was selected as the 2018-19 Association Executive of the Year at this year’s Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) Caribbean Hospitality Industry Exchange Forum (CHIEF).
This very prestigious award recognises excellence in Caribbean Association Management; the winners distinguish themselves from other executives by demonstrating superior achievement in association operations, destination marketing, community affairs and involvement with CHTA.
Meijer has been the SHTA Executive Director since October 2016. He took off running from day one, bringing the association to even greater heights by growing the membership base, generating new innovative networking events like St. Maarten Innovation, Initiatives and Industries Linkup Event (SMILE). He also spearheaded the very popular and successful St. Maarten Calendar of Events, among many other projects.
His leadership of the SHTA team, tenacity and connections have aided in generating grants for vital projects like the ongoing acquisition of a badly-needed beach cleaning machine for the island. He has forged key partnerships and relationships with other non-governmental organisations (NGOs) which has made SHTA stronger, according to the group on Monday.
