Rosewood Tuckers Point Manager Appointed Head Bermuda Tourism Authority


Paul Telford, managing director of Rosewood Bermuda, has been named chairman of the Bermuda Tourism Authority Board of Directors by Minister of Tourism and Economic Development Jamahl Simmons. Telford’s appointment comes on the heels of the retirement of Founding Chairman David Dodwell.

A veteran in the hospitality industry, Telford, has worked at Rosewood Bermuda for the past 9 years and has sat as a director on the Bermuda Tourism Authority Board since 2014.  Paul began his hotel career as a bus boy at the Elbow Beach Hotel and eventually went on to work in the U.S. and Mexico for The Kahala Hotel & Resort and Four Seasons Punta Mita. In 2008, Telford returned home to Bermuda and began his remarkable career with Rosewood Bermuda.  From his humble beginnings as a bus boy, Telford used his passion, dedication and impressive skillset to rise through the ranks to become the managing director of the award-winning, ultra-luxury Bermudian resort.

“We would like to congratulate Paul on his new position within the Bermuda Tourism Authority Board,” said Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. “Paul’s incredible work ethic, business acumen and leadership skills make him an invaluable member of the Rosewood Bermuda team, and we are excited to see how Paul continues to impact tourism on the island in his new role.”

Paul’s appointment comes on the heels of the recent announcement that Rosewood Bermuda has been acquired by an affiliate of Gencom, a Miami, Florida-based investment firm that owns and develops prized hospitality and residential real estate around the world. News of the acquisition came with the announcement that the Gencom-led purchaser will invest an additional $25 million in a comprehensive renovation at the 200-acre property, as well as additional follow-on commitments for future development. As Bermuda regains its status as a favored island destination by elite travelers around the world, Gencom intends to elevate every aspect of Rosewood Bermuda, from renovating the guest rooms and public spaces, to adding new food and beverage venues and meeting spaces. Additional details surrounding the renovation will be announced soon.
