The Scrub Island Resort in the British Virgin Islands has named a new leadership team, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The property, which is reopening this week in time for the British Virgin Islands’ tourism relaunch, has named a new general manager and assistant manager.
The new team includes General Manager Michael Schoonewagen and Assistant General Manager Dornelle Hazel.
Schoonewagen is a hospitality veteran, having most recently served as general manager of the new Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica. His Caribbean experience also includes four years helming Belmond La Samanna in St Martin.
“As a loyal part of the Mainsail Lodging & Development team for the past five years, Dornelle understands service and quality expectations for the resort, and has proven himself ready to advance to the next level,” said Joe Collier, President of Mainsail Lodging & Development. “When you couple that with Michael’s stellar career in luxury travel, his knowledge of the industry, and his passion for exceptional service, it creates a dream team perfectly suited for this responsibility, especially in light of changing travel demands.”
