Bryan Guillot Named Chief Marketing Officer of Baha Mar Development Company
and Cable Beach Resorts and Crystal Palace Casino Inc.  
PLANTATION, FL, August 15, 2005 – Bryan Guillot has been named Chief Marketing Officer of Baha Mar Development Company and Cable Beach Resorts and Crystal Palace Casino Inc.  The announcement was made by Michael Sansbury, Executive Vice President of Baha Mar Development and Chief Operating Officer of Cable Beach Resorts, which consists of three recently acquired properties located side-by-side along Nassau’s famous Cable Beach in The Bahamas - the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino, the Radisson Cable Beach Resort & Golf Club, and the Nassau Beach Hotel.  
Guillot will assume the day-to-day management of Cable Beach Resorts’ consolidated sales and marketing functions for the three properties, and will oversee the future sales and marketing initiatives of the planned Baha Mar mega resort.  With an initial phase one investment of $1.2 billion, Baha Mar represents the single largest investment in the history of the Bahamas.  Once complete, this one-in-the-world resort will include 2,700 rooms across multiple, branded properties.  Baha Mar will also feature the largest casino in the Caribbean, and countless amenities and ‘must-see’, ‘must-do’ experiences.
Guillot served as a marketing consultant to Cable Beach Resorts as part of the Thomas Lee Group, a hospitality industry consulting organization.  He now joins the Cable Beach Resorts management team to develop and oversee all sales and marketing policies and programs, including strategic partnerships, casino marketing activities, and optimizing cross-selling and promotion opportunities.  
Guillot will be based out of Cable Beach Resorts’ executive offices in Plantation, Florida, where he will manage the sales and marketing team; and a dedicated team handling operations and charters for the Crystal Palace Casino. 
Mr. Guillot, a 23-year hotel industry veteran, joins Baha Mar/Cable Beach Resorts after a successful career with some of the industry’s leading brands.  
Responsible for the successful planning and opening of Universal Studios’ first property – The Portofino Bay Hotel, Guillot was also engaged in the pre-planning for Universal’s future hotel expansion to encompass over 5,000 hotel rooms.  As Vice President, Resorts/Park & Event Sales and Marketing for Universal Studios, Guillot was responsible for launching the new “Universal Orlando” destination.  
Prior to his work with Universal, Guillot served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Tishman Hotel Corporation, where he was responsible for the Westin Rio Mar Beach, Walt Disney World Swan, Walt Disney World Dolphin, Sheraton Meadowlands, and Doral Park Avenue.  Earlier in his career, Guillot also held a number of sales and marketing positions for a variety of Westin Hotels & Resorts, including the Westin Galleria and Oaks, Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, and Westin Canal Place.
Since their acquisition, Cable Beach Resorts is operating the three hotels as one resort complex.  Like three resorts in one, guests of the Wyndham, Radisson and Nassau Beach resorts can enjoy beach, golf and tennis entitlements at all three properties no matter where they stay.  Dining and other amenities offered at each resort will be available to guests within the next 60 days as Cable Beach Resorts puts a new centralized billing and reservation system in place.  
Together, the resorts – which will retain their existing flags – offer guests 1,941 guest rooms and suites, most with incredible ocean views; a 35,000 square foot full-service casino; over 50,000 square feet of meeting space; 27 food and beverage facilities; a complete tennis facility; an 18-hole golf course; over a half mile of Nassau’s best beach; and a variety of water sport activities.  
In addition, the three Cable Beach hotels are conveniently located within 20 minutes of Nassau International Airport, which is easily accessible by air by a number of domestic and international carriers.
