Farewell to Scott

Scott Derrickson was given a congenial farewell party from the Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa, just recently.

Scott, Director of Resort Operations, will be going down the street, as he puts it, to become the General Manager of the Marriott Surf Club.

His mentor, boss and friend, General Manager Gary Jutz, personally awarded him a new set of white gloves traditionally symbolizing the general manager’s responsibility for the resort’s spotlessness. Scott was also given a number of thoughtful mementos, a sign picture frame, a crystal plaque among other gifts for his new office.

American born Scott, his wife Anne and their two kids have been living on the island for seven year, almost uninterrupted except for a short US stint five years ago. They have made Aruba their home.

Jutz and his entire staff wished Scott success on his new and exciting journey and thanked him for his many contributions and the humor he brought to the job, during his years of service at the Radisson.
