Nevis: Premier of Nevis and Leader of Concerned Citizens Movement Mark Brantley extended greetings to all the candidates who have been selected for the prestigious Four Seasons Resort, Nevis.
Premier Brantley also outlined the biography of all the candidates and expressed his pleasure in their achievements.
About Tafana Morton:
Brantley noted, “Nevis, the GREAT news just keeps coming. Help me congratulate our own Tafana Morton on her selection as Employee of the Year-Heart of House at the prestigious Four Seasons Resort Nevis.”
Tafana has been with Four Seasons Nevis since 2012 and currently holds the role of Stewarding Supervisor, which she has held for several years.
Tafana was born in Guyana but grew up in Nevis, which is her home. She is happily married and has three beautiful children.
She loves T20 cricket (her team is Guyana Amazon Warriors) but is also a huge NFL fan (the Chiefs are her favorite team).
Tafana has single-handedly taken charge of the Stewarding Department and has a strong team to support her. She has been instrumental as part of the Hygiene team and always looking for ways to do things better to support the Four Seasons F&B Operation and staff.
Please help me congratulate Mrs Tafana Morton, Employee of the Year-Heart of House.
About Nelta Thomas:
And the GREAT news continues for Nevisians. Please help me congratulate my former Hanley’s Road neighbour Mrs Nelta Thomas on being named Manager of the Year at the prestigious Four Seasons Resort, Nevis.
Nelta joined the Four Seasons Resort Nevis team in November 1991 after completing a two-year Diploma in Tourism Reception and Sales at the Barbados Community College.
She has been with the company for the last 30 years and has served in various roles in the Conference Services Department to include Administrative Assistant from 1991 to 1994, Conference Coordinator from 1994 to 1998, Conference Manager from 1998 to 2014 and as Director of Conference Services from October 2014 to present.
She is a seasoned event professional with a very outstanding portfolio of producing many memorable social and corporate events.
As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Conference Services Department was reduced from a team of five to one, hence, Nelta became the sole member of the department for 18 months and fulfilled all roles and responsibilities. These included hosting site inspections, planning and execution of corporate incentive trips, weddings, and social events. During this time, she also assisted in other areas of the resort as necessary, from retail inventory to restaurant hostess.
She is well respected and appreciated by her clients and colleagues and exemplifies the true meaning of adaptability, diligence, commitment. She is the consummate team player.
She has continued to exemplify grace under pressure, commitment and dedication to her craft to Four Seasons and to her beloved Nevis. Loving what you do definitely resonates with her!
No one deserves the award of Manager of the Year more than Nelta.
Proud of you Nelta!! Keep pushing!
