The Minister for Tourism and Civil Aviation Hon. Dr. Clarice Modeste-Curwen and the Chairman, Board of Directors, Management and Staff of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) are deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Andre Cherman (OBE) who served as Managing Director of the Coyaba Beach Resort for 32 years. The stalwart in the tourism industry was also a shareholder and Chairman of the Board at Coyaba. Under his capable leadership, Coyaba has become one of Grenada’s best known beach resorts.

Mr. Cherman was jovial, charismatic and committed to the development of the Tourism industry through service excellence. He served as Chairman of the Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association and on various committees. He also served for a brief period as Chairman of the Grenada Board of Tourism. In 2017, the Minister and GTA were happy to celebrate 30 years of Coyaba’s operation and service excellence with Mr. Cherman as part of British Airways 30 years of flying to the destination.

The GTA extends condolences to his wife, daughters and other family members during this difficult time. His smile, personality and commitment will surely be missed. May his soul rest in peace.
