Tanoa International Hotel General Manager Daniel Roy was accorded an iTaukei traditional welcoming ceremony from his staff on Friday night.

While speaking to the staff at the hotel in Votualevu, Nadi he thanked them for their hard work and that he was willing to work with them in uplifting their services.

Mr Roy joined Tanoa International Hotel in 2003 as a practical student in the laundry department.

From 2004 he worked in leading resorts at Denarau and in the Mamanucas giving him a wealth of experience.

He then joined the hotel again just six weeks ago as the general manager.

Mr Roy said his Christian upbringing had been the anchor of all the achievements he made in life.

“I am from Nadi and was brought up by my parents who were church pastors, I come from a Christian family, so I believe my upbringing was right in the sense I was led to Christian values which is something I embrace,” he added.

Mr Roy said he enjoyed working with people and making a positive impact on their lives.

“I try to bring out the best in people and make them work hard, people are important and we should look after them,” he added.

He is 36 years old and is married with two children and is currently pursuing a Masters of Business Administration from the University of the South Pacific.

“It is great to be back at Tanoa International Hotel and I am ready to make a difference with the help of my staff, when I was approached for this job, I agreed to it because I love to work with people.

“I have gained so much experience over the past years and it’s great to be back , I am ready to learn and have fun with my staff,” Mr Roy said.

His aim is to make the hotel the best within the Tanoa Group and take it to another level.

“I don’t see myself moving in the next five years, I want to pass this knowledge down to my staff and pushing people to the limit is the only way to bring out the best in people.

“ I aspire to make a differences sometimes we can have good pay but are still not happy, we need to look after our staff so that they can be happy,” Mr Roy said.
