Wyndham Destinations President and Managing Director of International Operations, Barry Robinson, has been named Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2022 GNEX Conference Perspective Magazine Awards.
At the awards in Las Vegas, Robinson was honoured for his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I am honoured to be recognised with this award,” Robinson said.
“It reflects an incredible team of people, who have showed tremendous agility and innovation. The last couple of years have been some of the most challenging the hospitality industry has ever faced. I am proud of what we have achieved together to advance our business and enhance our customer experiences.”
Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific took home four Perspective Magazine awards in total, including Best Overall Company Over 250 Employees, Best Legal Services and Best Hotel/Resort Development for its resort, Club Wyndham Flynns Beach.
