Veteran hotelier Brian M. Young has been appointed general manager of Tucker’s Point Hotel & Spa, which opened in April as Bermuda’s first new luxury resort in nearly 40 years. Young brings to his position more than 30 years of experience at some of the world’s most exclusive resorts and hospitality companies.
For the past two years, Young was vice president – operations and general manager for The Sea Island Resorts in Sea Island, GA. There, he oversaw a team of more than 1,100 employees serving three distinctive properties – The Cloister, The Lodge and Cabin Bluff – plus a private membership club of 5,000 and 150 rental properties.
Young was previously vice president – operations for Rosewood Hotels and Resorts LLC, headquartered in Dallas. He was promoted to this corporate position in 2004 after five years as managing director of the brand’s iconic Caneel Bay, a Rosewood Resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Previously, Young was general manager of the deluxe Metropolitan Hotel in Vancouver, a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts. Among his successes during a tenure that ran from late 1995 to early 1999 was the opening of the restaurant Diva at the Met, which quickly took the top spot among Vancouver restaurants in listings by both Gourmet and the Zagat Guide. He also served as general manager of the deluxe Cap Juluca resort on Anguilla for three years prior.
