Mulligan’s Golf Cafe, Bar & Restaurant was upside down yesterday night. Filled with family, friends, colleagues and representatives of the government that said adieu to the beloved parting GM of the Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort, Gerrit Griffith. 43 years he had been working for Divi Resorts and the last seven he was the General Manager of Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort.
CEO of Divi Resorts Marco Galaverna praised Griffith’s accomplishments within Divi Resorts during his speech. Both Tourism-minister Dangui Oduber and Labor-minister Glenbert Croes expressed words of appreciation to Griffith.
With his family on his side the parting GM listened to the beautiful words that were dedicated to him. The new GM Pearl Lake has already taken over in order for Griffith to do what he wished for: pay more attention to his family. GM of Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort Ferry Zievinger and Managing Director of Divi Resorts Alex Nieuwmeyer underlined the great connection within the Divi Resorts family. Like Griffith said to the Divi staff during his in-house reception recently: “All employees matter within the Divi family, you only need to grasp that one chance to make your way up.” q
