New Beginnings at Nisbet Plantation
Akeem Fredericks is one of our newer staff members, and things are off to a great start! He joined the Nisbet team in early 2017, and by November, he was already honored as the Employee of the Month. This award recognized his strong work ethic, positive energy and adaptability.
“I Love Making People Smile”
His stepmother owns a restaurant, and Akeem, who is originally from Guyana, enjoys helping out at this local establishment. In fact, he made it his long-term mission to be the “Best Cook in Nevis.” He joined Nisbet with a role in the kitchen, eager to learn new culinary skills.
Akeem was successful in this position, however his bright personality presented the opportunity to transition to a guest-facing role. He tried his hand at bartending, and it was a natural fit! Akeem has a knack for making delicious drinks and more importantly, making connections with our guests.
When asked what he loves about his job, Akeem said, “I love making people smile.”
Beyond the Avenue
When not mixing drinks at Sea Breeze Beach Bar, Akeem likes watching football and playing pool. In addition, he has an affinity for animals and has quite a few pets, including a monkey!
On behalf of the ladies and gentlemen of Nisbet Plantation, we’re delighted Akeem chose to begin his hospitality career at our resort. Akeem, we look forward to a long and successful working relationship, and appreciate your hard work and dedication!
