She will now lead the team at Divi Carina Bay with the goal to exceed guests' expectations and help mentor aspiring hospitality professionals.

"My core mission is to deliver to guests what we promise-a dreamy Caribbean getaway-and care for the employees who make that promise a reality," said Ocampo. "Guests will enjoy a memorable vacation experience with warm hospitality and personalized service."

As General Manager, Ocampo will be in charge of all aspects of the resorts, including operations, food and beverage, human resources, and guest outreach, to name a few.

Norman McPherson

McPherson has been cooking professionally around the world for more than 20 years. Now, he says he's ready to take on his next culinary adventure at Divi Carina Bay All-Inclusive Beach Resort and Oceans at Divi Carina Bay to continue to grow the resort's strong presence on the island.

"I love the idea of taking a simple raw ingredient and turning it not only into a work of art, but also something that's healthy, satisfying, and nourishing," said McPherson. "Guests can expect a strong focus on traditional Caribbean cuisine, the freshest seafood, authentic Italian, and an emphasis on organic and healthy ingredients."

McPherson will now be in charge of the resorts' all-inclusive restaurants and bars, including Oceans Bar & Grill, Waves Marketplace, Tuscany Ristorante Italiano, East End Coffee, and Latitude Bar.
