CaribPR Wire, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Aug. 10, 2018: Over five decades of performances and more than 70 CDs later, award-winning Jamaican-born jazz maestro, Monty Alexander, is being bestowed with a honorary doctorate degree from the University of West Indies, (UWI).

Alexander, born Montgomery Bernard Alexander on D-Day in Kingston, Jamaica, will be presented with an Honorary Doctor of Letters from the UWI Mona Campus this November.

The degree was approved by the University’s Council and will be conferred at the 2018 graduation ceremonies and presented by Chancellor Robert Bermudez.

The man, who singer extraordinaire, Tony Bennett, has declared put on one of the “best jazz shows” he has ever seen, will be one of four stellar Caribbean-born musicians who will be presented with honorary doctorates by UWI.

They include Bajan star Rihanna; fellow Jamaican artist Grace Jones, and Winston A. Bailey, aka the Mighty Shadow, from Trinidad and Tobago.

In commenting on the incredible recognition and prestigious honor, Alexander said humbly: “I have a sense of great privilege and gratitude.”

Alexander began his musical career at age four by playing Christmas carols by ear. By age 5, he was entertaining neighbors and relatives and at age 6, he was taking his first piano lessons.

While he resisted formal instruction, he absorbed all the musical flavors from his homeland and which comprise his mature sonic palette of today.

Alexander began playing in local Kingston clubs at 14, when he also made his first recordings, some as leader of a group called Monty and the Cyclones, and others as a sideman for such legendary producers as Ken Khouri (Federal Records), Duke Reid (Treasure Isle), and Clement Coxsone Dodd at Studio One.

These early sessions for Federal, which Alexander describes as “not calypso music, but the beginning of Ska,” included such subsequently famous talents as trombonist Don Drummond, tenor saxophonist Roland Alphonso and guitarist Ernest Ranglin.

Alexander is most widely known as an upper echelon master of the swinging piano trio function, as he has demonstrated with several top-shelf groups, including iconic units with bassist John Clayton and drummer Jeff Hamilton, and with the legendary bassist Ray Brown and guitarist Herb Ellis.

He also performs frequently with Harlem-Kingston Express, a double trio in which he coalesces his love for hard-swinging jazz with musical flavors that reflect his Jamaican heritage, shifting between an acoustic trio and master Jamaican practitioners of electric bass and drums. He debuted the project at Jazz at Lincoln Center in 2009 and documented it both on the Grammy-nominated 2011 CD, Harlem-Kingston Express: LIVE, and its 2014 Soultrain Award nominated follow-up, Harlem Kingston Express 2: The River Rolls On (Motéma).

UWI

Established in 1948, UWI is the largest and longest standing higher education provider in the English-speaking Caribbean. In its more than 60 years of existence, UWI has evolved from a fledgling college in the Caribbean island of Jamaica with 33 students to a full-fledged University with over 45,000 students, approximately 9,000 graduates annually and more than 120,000 alumni.

*For Immediate Release*

 Jamaican company Global Canna Labs (“GCL”) is pleased to announce a US$1M investment through its partners LGC Capital (“LGC”) via a convertible note into Zimmer & Co. Limited (“Zimmer”).

Jamaican company Global Canna Labs (“GCL”) is pleased to announce a US$1M investment through its partners LGC Capital (“LGC”) via a convertible note into Zimmer & Co. Limited (“Zimmer”).

CaribPR Wire, MONTEGO BAY, Mon. July 30, 2018. Jamaican company Global Canna Labs (“GCL”) is pleased to announce a US$1M investment through its partners LGC Capital (“LGC”) via a convertible note into Zimmer & Co. Limited (“Zimmer”).  The capital will be used to finance Zimmer’s expansion and accelerate its plans to distribute quality health and wellness products in Jamaica and the rest of the Caribbean, as well into Colombia, Mexico, Canada and throughout Europe.

Zimmer is a Jamaica based health and wellness distribution company with its offices in Montego Bay. The company has received its pharmacy wholesale distribution license which permits legal sale to pharmacies, doctors and hospitals on the island.  The company currently distributes a portfolio of just over 50 hemp-based CBD products ranging from oils to skincare.  Since commencing sales a few weeks ago, the company has quickly established itself as a key player in the burgeoning Jamaican market with sales into over 50 of the leading pharmacies on the island for its portfolio of approved products. Zimmer has emerged as a dominant player in this new category and currently has distribution agreements representing 50 of the 61 products that have been approved for sale in Jamaica.

Global Canna Labs is one of the leading medical cannabis companies in Jamaica, having recently been granted its full Tier 3 operator’s licence on its 270,000 square foot facility in the heart of Montego Bay, Jamaica. The Tier 3 licence is the largest issued license by the Jamaican Cannabis License Authority (CLA). GCL is backed by Canadian listed LGC Capital Limited.

Zimmer CEO, T’Shura Gibbs believes that the medicinal cannabis market holds tremendous potential for the Caribbean nation: “As the industry evolves, we welcome the significant job creation and economic value that will be derived.  I am excited about this tremendous opportunity with GCL. This collaboration does not only bode well for our growth and development as an organization, but it allows us, in partnership, to move Jamaica directly into the critical finished goods segment of the industry where we can manufacture products in Jamaica and export globally.  The ‘Made in Jamaica’ brand is very strong, and we feel that this particular partnership combining quality Jamaican products with established, world-class formulations that have been approved in a number of key global markets affords us a tremendous opportunity.”

The investment will facilitate Zimmer’s business expansion into new markets and retail points while providing access to additional products through its distribution channels.  As a local producer this will afford GCL an additional revenue stream, directly into finished products via Zimmer’s product portfolio.

Global CEO, Paul Glavine: “This is a strategic partnership that will help GCL push its future product line throughout Caribbean and Central American countries as the industry rapidly develops. It allows GCL to focus on producing safe and secure products while Zimmer safely distributes and delivers the products to the end consumers.”

Owen Ellington from Global said: “This new partnership with Zimmer will afford us direct entry into the value chain of finished products and provide both companies with new sales revenue streams for ‘Made in Jamaica’ products.  Zimmer has an impressive portfolio of high-quality products and we are excited by this partnership and the opportunity to incorporate our oils into these and other finished goods they will be distributing.  This partnership provides an additional growth opportunity for GCL which translates into more jobs in Jamaica and contributes positively to the Jamaican economy, especially in agriculture and manufacturing sectors and allows us to increase productive growing capacity.”

Vero Water® Expands In Caribbean And Latin America With Eco-friendly Solutions Partner, OneLink Global

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

Leading hotels & resorts in the region have made Vero Water a key feature in their total guest experience, eliminating the waste of millions of plastic-bottles, and significantly reducing their overall carbon footprint.

MIAMI BEACH, Florida, July 30, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – VERO WATER®, a leading provider of luxury still and sparkling water to the hospitality industry, today announced its rapid expansion in the Caribbean and Latin America in partnership with OneLink Global, a world-class distribution and service partner with unique experience and insight in the region. OneLink is committed to providing sustainable solutions to the hospitality industry. The exclusive distribution agreement expands Vero’s global footprint into regions where hotel and resorts dominate the landscape and are seeking an eco-friendly alternative to traditional bottled water.

Vero Water How it Works

“Recently major players in the hospitality industry both in the US and abroad have announced they have taken steps to eliminate plastic straws, which is a good start, but it’s not enough. By implementing a Vero Water program, hotels and resorts can eliminate plastic bottles which represent a massive threat to our environment on a global scale,” stated David Deshe, President of Vero Water. It is estimated that over 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year, having a catastrophic effect on marine life. Deshe continued, “Just last week, an island of over 30 tons of plastic waste was found floating off the coast of Playa Montesinos near the capital of the Dominican Republic and some of it has since washed up onshore. This not only threatens the marine eco-system but is a major threat to local businesses who rely on tourists attracted to the pristine beaches at their resorts.”

Through the OneLink partnership, Vero Water has rapidly expanded in the region, establishing a presence in many of the leading hotel and resort operators such as Iberostar Hotels & Resorts who have made a corporate strategic commitment to “go green”, incorporating Vero Water into the total guest experience. Collectively, these clients have projected to reduce waste by over 4 million plastic bottles this year alone. “As experts in both the region and meeting the unique needs the hospitality industry through sustainable solutions, we are proud to be a part of eliminating plastic waste in the Caribbean and Latin America,” said Gennaro Cirone President of OneLink Global.

Vero Water is committed to meeting the growing demands of consumers and the hospitality industry for sustainability. Vero enables clients to purify, chill and fill still and sparkling water on-site and on-demand, delivering a consistent signature taste, swiftly, profitably and sustainably. Transforming tap water results in a significant reduction in food miles and carbon footprint versus sourcing, bottling and transporting bottled water, often from various countries thousands of miles away from the end consumer. Bottle waste is minimized as the signature luxury VERO WATER bottles are reusable– sanitized and refilled on-premise.

Enterprise Plus and Emerald Club Loyalty Programs Offered Across Popular Caribbean Destinations

ST. LOUIS, July 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – As part of its ongoing expansion in Latin America and the Caribbean, the world’s largest car rental company has opened four new Enterprise Rent-A-Car locations at the Dominican Republic’s largest airports:

Enterprise Holdings Inc. owns the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand, as well as National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car. The National brand has been operating in the Dominican Republic since 1974.

From L to R: Analie Prieto, general manager of Enterprise franchisee Motor Plan; José Muñiz, Enterprise sales manager; and Michelle Geara, Enterprise marketing manager. (PRNewsfoto/Enterprise Holdings Inc.)

The Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand made its debut in the Caribbean in 2014 through franchisees in Guadeloupe and Martinique. It expanded into Latin America in 2015, and announced the opening of 22 new locations throughout Belize, Honduras, Mexico, Tortola, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks & Caicos and Uruguay in 2016.

Enterprise Holdings ranks near the top of the global travel industry in terms of revenue, ahead of many airlines and most cruise lines, hotels, tour operators and online travel agencies. Today, the Enterprise, National and Alamo brands operate in more than 90 countries, including 31 in Latin America and the Caribbean.

“The Dominican Republic is an important piece of our planned growth in the region,” said Peter A. Smith, vice president of global franchising at Enterprise Holdings. “And this expansion allows travelers even more access to our world-renowned customer service and convenient rental process.”

Loyalty Program Expansion

Customers traveling to the Dominican Republic – one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean – also can enjoy more perks and rewards with the expansion of two loyalty programs: Enterprise Plus through the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand, and the award-winning Emerald Club, through the National Car Rental brand.

“Our brands are continuing to grow internationally, largely due to the continued loyalty of customers,” said Smith. “Increasing the availability of Enterprise Plus and Emerald Club with our new locations in the Dominican Republic is a natural way to thank our customers for their business and further our mission to serve them no matter where they decide to travel.”

This expansion follows both loyalty programs’ introduction in Colombia, Honduras, Jamaica, Peru and Suriname in 2017. The same year, Enterprise Plus was also introduced in Turks & Caicos, Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Tortola, Trinidad & Tobago and Uruguay.

Emerald Club

Through the Emerald Club, members earn vehicle upgrades according to membership level. All Emerald Club members are guaranteed a midsize or above vehicle at the reserved midsize rate. Emerald Club members at the Executive level and above are guaranteed a full-size or larger vehicle at the reserved midsize rate. Members can also choose to earn either free rental days or frequent-traveler miles or points with one of National’s airline or hotel partners.

In addition, Emerald Club members renting in Latin America and the Caribbean can take advantage of Emerald Club Priority Service, which expedites the rental process by offering a dedicated line at the service counter exclusively for Emerald Club members.  Membership is complimentary for all National customers, and individual travelers can easily enroll themselves in the program by clicking the Emerald Club “Join Now” link at www.nationalcar.com.

Enterprise Plus

With every qualifying rental, Enterprise Plus members earn points they can redeem anytime for free rental days in any available vehicle at thousands of participating Enterprise locations worldwide. Points don’t expire as long as the member has one qualifying Enterprise rental in a three-year period. Free rental day awards apply to time and mileage (base rate) only and do not cover taxes, surcharges and concession fees.

Once enrolled, Enterprise Plus members simply use their membership number to book a reservation online at www.enterprise.com, via the Enterprise mobile app or over the phone to receive all member benefits.  As Enterprise Plus members rent more frequently, they can quickly rise to Silver, Gold or Platinum status to gain access to even more reward options until the end of the next program year. Each status level has its own unique set of benefits, such as bonus points and vehicle upgrades. Membership in Enterprise Plus is free, and the loyalty program is open to anyone at least 21 years old.

I am proud to welcome Larry Rogers, President of Tamarind International, Inc. to our executive team. Larry’s decades of hands-on logistical experience and unmatched client dedication dovetails perfectly within our long-term growth strategy as the Caribbean continues to rebound from Hurricane Irma and Maria. Larry is well-known, well-liked, and a true professional in the shipping business,” says Chris Findlay, CEO of Source Logistics, LLC.

Tamarind Consolidated, Inc. was founded by Larry and Nancy Rogers in 1983 to provide logistics services to Virgin Gorda, BVI after realizing the logistical challenges of obtaining building materials and everyday household items for their vacation home on the island. Larry and Nancy Rogers were responsible for organizing one of the first regular consolidated container services to Virgin Gorda. That operation began a storied career supplying durable goods and building materials throughout the Caribbean for more than 35 years.
