Manuel Cespedes started his career in the Hospitality Industry in 1999 in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic as a Resort Representative for Apple Vacations. He was responsible for groups of clients from 50 to 300 guests in the different hotels in the Punta Cana, Bavaro and Uvero Alto areas. The time in Apple Vacations and other hotel experiences in the City of Santo Domingo gave Mr. Cespedes more than 8 years of hotel operations and sales experience. Before moving to the East Cost of the island, he worked in Customer Services and Sales of Telecommunication services for Tricom Dominicana and Skytel. His most recent experience was as the Marketing Assistant for Meal on Wheels of Rhode Island. He took part in the creation, planning and management of the finale fundraising event for the agency. This event gathered 500 people and 20 important celebrities from the State of Rhode Island. During his time in Business School, Manuel assisted in the administration of the Johnson & Wales University Multicultural Center. His commitment to the hospitality industry led him to two internship experiences with the Providence Hotel and the Center for Hispanic Policy and Advocacy in Providence, R.I. During 2008, as part of his Optional Practical Training (OPT), Manuel joined the Hilton Cincinnati Management Team as a Floor Manager and Weekends Room Controller. He also worked for the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati as part of the Front Desk team. He holds a BA in Modern Languages and a Professional Certificate in Marketing from the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD), a BS in Accounting from the Regional Center of the East of the UASD Univerisy and a MBA in Hospitality with a Marketing Concentration from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. Originally from the Dominican Republic, today he is living in Punta Cana and is working in the creation of the Punta Cana Development Fundation as well as other businesses of public and private interest in order to improve the cultural, intellectual and economical development of the region that will help the projection of Punta Cana in the global hospitality market.
