MONTEGO BAY, St James — Chairman of the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) Godfrey Dyer is to be inducted in the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry's Business Leaders Wall of Fame during its annual awards banquet at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in Rose Hall on Saturday.

Some 350 guests from a wide cross section of the corporate community will be among those who are expected to be present at the event, which is being held under the theme, “Promoting Diversity. Driving Growth”.

“We are pleased to honour those who have invested their time and energy in building the commercial value of our city and salute the 2017 inductee to the MBCCI Wall of Fame, renowned hotelier and businessman Godfrey Dyer,” said chamber president T'Shura Gibbs.

“Mr Dyer will be recognised for his exemplary contribution to the tourism sector, several government and civic organisations and his personal interest in the growth and development of Montego Bay and nation building in general.”

According to the chamber, the Wall of Fame was introduced in 2015 as a way to recognise individuals who have made a lasting contribution to the community for no less than 20 years, in the areas of industry leadership, exemplary dedication, and the creation of a product or service sold in the marketplace that has driven industry and trade and which must have a lasting effect on the community.

“Mr Dyer leads the list of other deserving recipients of chamber awards spanning business development, and outstanding contribution to the chamber and its support base,” Gibbs said in a release.

Chairman of Sandals Resorts International Gordon 'Butch' Stewart, Ralph Smith, Anthony 'Tony' Hart, the late Joe Whitter, and BD Dadlani and publisher Lloyd 'B' Smith are inductees in the MBCCI's Wall of Fame.
