Peter Cox joined Goddard’s at the Crane Hotel as a Gardener in 1965 where he worked directly for Flo Goddard. Peter remembers those early days fondly and found the Goddard’s to be wonderful people who were very concerned with the welfare of the employees and treated everyone with respect.
Peter subsequently joined the Barbados Flight Kitchen in 1967 as a Cook and was then promoted to Supervisor, Sous Chef and then to Chef in 1972. He was appointed Assistant Manager in 1980 and he spent some time in Jamaica when Goddard’s acquired the flight kitchen there in 1981.
In 1986, Peter was appointed General Manager of GCG St Maarten when the company was purchased and where he currently resides with his family.
Peter embodies the “can do” spirit of GCG and is fond of saying “I just need more business”. Peter is a renowned Karaoke singer in both St Maarten and Barbados and loves nothing more than being asked to perform in front of a large crowd on a moment’s notice. Peter is known for his tight cost control and promotion of multitasking.
Peter has made an immense contribution to the development and growth of Goddard’s and of Goddard Catering Group and we are proud to have him as our colleague and friend.
