Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific’s legal team has been recognized as the best legal team in the global timeshare industry at the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) awards.
The team – based in the company’s offices in Singapore; Shanghai, China; and the Gold Coast, Australia – won the Legal and Regulatory Manager, Team Member or Team category at the ceremony held yesterday at the Diplomat Hotel in Florida, USA.
“We are a multi-faceted international company that operates vacation clubs, managed hotels, corporate offices and service centers, and provides consumer loans in several Asia-Pacific markets, all with their own regulatory complexities”, said Liz Collinson, senior vice president of legal and compliance.
“Over the past two years, the team had the added task of ensuring our operations complied with the ever-changing COVID-19 restrictions. Our team members also regularly support our industry by providing their expertise to industry bodies, participating in government task forces and meeting with regulators, while taking on leadership roles within our company by supporting our charity arm, our diversity resource group and our regional Women in Travel chapter.
“I am extremely proud that our team has been recognized for their technical expertise, can-do attitude and solution-focused approach to delivering the best results to internal stakeholders and business customers,” Ms. Collinson added.
