Portrait of J. Barrie Farrington
J. Barrie Farrington by Duke Wells

The veteran hotelier has been called a tourism giant and he has played an important role in empowering the tourism industry.

He is highly regarded as someone with integrity and dedication and has been lauded for his contributions to the ‘Bahamianisation’ in senior management of the international hotels.

He grew up in a modest home on Hawkins Hill.

1971 was the start of his career in the hotel industry, a career from which he retired in January 2013 after more than 40 years, leaving behind an indistinguishable imprint in the history of The Bahamas.
