Gary C. Sadler, OD, Executive Vice President Global Sales & Industry Relations for Unique Vacations Inc., affiliate of the worldwide representative of Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts, marks 30 years with the company on 12JUL 2022.

Since joining Unique Vacations in 1992, Sadler is credited by the company with championing many innovations, including the Certified Sandals Specialist program, one of the first opportunities for travel advisors and agencies to “learn and earn.”

“Gary embodies the values that we hold in highest regard, a commitment to exceeding customer expectations, the recognition of travel advisors as the invaluable partners they are and the certainty that, together, we can create Caribbean moments and memories that inspire our guests and impact communities,” said Chief Executive Officer of Unique Vacations, Inc., Jeff Clarke.


“I have had the privilege of representing the Sandals brand for 30 of its 40 years and from the very beginning, Sandals chose to forge its future alongside travel advisors – our ever-growing, ever-loyal partners on this glorious journey. Simply put, our better halves,” said Sadler.

“Nimble, savvy and undisputed masters of their craft, travel advisors have proven themselves again and again to be essential to our industry, a beacon of light for travellers through this exhilarating industry, filled with beautiful, unforgettable experiences and moments,” he added.

“They have helped travellers navigate through the best and worst of times, from moments of incredible connection to most recently, the uncertainties of returning to travel after a global pandemic. Their relevancy cannot be underestimated, which is why our relationship with them is paramount.”

Sadler began his sales career with Unique Vacations in Canada based in the corporate office in Toronto before moving west to Vancouver, where he worked with the Western Canadian market before eventually leading all Canadian sales and marketing operations.

Since 2007, he has been based at Unique Vacations’ Miami headquarters with expanded roles and responsibilities, but has never forgotten his home country of Jamaica, where in recognition of his outstanding contribution to Jamaica’s tourism and hotel industry, Sadler was conferred with the coveted Order of Distinction in 2017. Sadler supports many travel industry and hospitality causes and is a member of Skål International.

“I’ve worked with Gary during my entire 28-year career with Unique Vacations Canada and I can say it’s been a lively journey for sure,” says Maureen Barnes-Smith, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Canada. “We’ve come a long way together, since those early days of the Toronto office first opening up and both of us trying to convince people that we weren’t selling shoes!”
