This November, Pacific Edge magazine held its annual Business Achievement Awards, honouring the accomplishments of Hawaii-based individuals and businesses. Outrigger Hospitality Group’s President and CEO Jeff Wagoner, was awarded Hospitality Executive of the Year.The award recognises a hospitality executive whose skill, foresight, agility and vision enabled them to navigate their business or organisation through changing times, while continuing to make a positive contribution to Hawaii’s critically important hospitality industry.
Wagoner said: “The key to succeeding in good times and bad is to stay focused, do your absolute best every single day – with great service, teams and leadership.”
On receiving the award 2 November in Honolulu, Wagoner said that he was optimistic about the future of travel. He said he wanted Outrigger to help travellers engage in an authentic and meaningful way at some of the world’s most iconic beach destinations: Hawaii, Thailand, Fiji, the Maldives and Mauritius.
He received the Pacific Edge accolade as Outrigger celebrates its 75th anniversary — 75 years of capturing the hearts of travellers around the globe.
Wagoner oversees all aspects of Outrigger’s multi-branded, global portfolio of resorts, hotels, vacation condominiums, timeshares and retail operations, while steering the direction, growth and strategic priorities for a company on a journey to become the “premier beach resort company in the world”.
