Why Dart?

Why Dart?

There's loads to love about working here. - from the culture and perks to our (pretty spectacular) Camana Bay location. But we know that none of it matters unless you're working with innovative people on projects to be proud of.

The good news is we have those too. From community parks to Camana Bay, we work on projects that'll inspire you to push boundaries. And with a team of over 700 specialists, inspiration isn't in short supply. 

Don’t just take our word for it

Since: 2011

“My career at Dart is perfect; I wouldn’t change a thing. I relish the daily challenges and appreciate the diversity and innovation of the people I work with.”

For Chip, working in property operations means that every day is different. “I am constantly learning something new; be it something about one the thirty properties we manage, an update to an operating system in one of our buildings or a implementing a new procedure for our team to follow. They are all dynamic elements that make each day interesting.  Ten years on and every day I’m still learning. My flexibility and willingness to learn are definite assets when it comes to getting the job done.”

My best advice to graduates entering the working world? “Work hard, be reliable, be willing to learn and adaptable to change.”

Michael’s advice for Dart’s future leaders? “Get involved and draw from every experience offered to you. Not everything is laid out for you to follow but the opportunities are endless if you look; seize them and seek out the answers you are looking for.”

Enrique Tasende

 

Title: Senior Vice President Active Investments
Department: Hospitality
Since: 2018

“I aspired to expand my industry knowledge beyond operations; Dart have made that possible. I have had witnessed an investor’s vision reach fruition, turning an empty piece of land into a vibrant luxury resort. The process has broadened my understanding of the industry from the owner’s perspective”.

As Senior Vice President Active Investments, with a focus on the hospitality businesses, Enrique manages multiple projects and assets daily. From developing a food and beverage concept for a new hotel restaurant, to understanding the complexity of managing a centralised laundry operation; managing a multi-million-dollar renovation or discussing the terms of a new hotel’s management agreement – he touches it all in his role.

“The COVID-19 pandemic taught us that working remotely can be productive. During that time, I was on a project team working with external consultants; 18-months of hard work and preparation resulted in the approval of the Hotel Indigo – a new hotel for the Cayman Islands that will stimulate the post COVID economy and create jobs for the local construction industry.

Enrique’s insight about a career at Dart? “If you want to be part of a company that develops projects that benefits both the local community overseas visitors the Cayman Islands; if you enjoy collaborating in a dynamic and innovative environment and making a difference, you’ll go far at Dart.”
