A new operation, headquartered in Miami and with representation throughout the Caribbean, is the first specialist company to concentrate on serving the finance and real estate brokerage requirements of the Caribbean’s hospitality, tourism, and leisure industries. The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Investment Conference (CHTIC), held in Montego Bay Jamaica last week was the scene of the launch of a new Maclellan & Associates group company – MacLellan International Brokers LLC.
Robert MacLellan, Managing Director of MacLellan & Associates, stated: “Since 1997, we have built up the hospitality consultancy to become the largest of its type based in the Caribbean, and we are proud of our record of working on assignments across the region from hotels to golf resorts and marina villages. We are very excited to partner with Paul Weimer in extending our activities in to the brokerage sector. Paul has moved to Miami from New York, where he has a long and successful track record in hotel investment banking, brokerage, and asset management.”
“I have always felt that there was a need for specific regional expertise in providing hospitality brokerage services in the Caribbean,” said Paul Weimer, “Local knowledge is key, and we have the experience and the network across the islands to service our clients in the most knowledgeable and cost-effective way. Current market conditions mean that we have launched the new company at a time of very high demand for our services – from hotel owners, developers, and financial institutions.”
