Passing of IHCL’s Esteemed Senior Vice President Vincent Ramos Leaves Hospitality Industry in Grief

Vincent Ramos, the Senior Vice President of IHCL, aged 55, breathed his last just before sunset on Wednesday, August 16 evening. His contributions were deeply rooted in the ‘Taj’, the flagship brand among the various labels he nurtured in Goa.

An alumni of Mont de Guirim school and hailing from Chorao, Vincent’s journey took him from these beginnings to becoming the General Manager of the esteemed ‘Best Hotel in the World’, Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur in 2016.

Chief Minister Goa, Pramod Sawant fondly recalled, “Vincent was a strong advocate for promoting young talent in the hospitality industry. He enthusiastically supported government initiatives aimed at developing programs within the hospitality and tourism sectors.”

Vincent Ramos was actively engaged with the state government in enhancing Goa’s tourism and contributing to policy formulation. He served as a guiding figure for the tourism committee of the Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and he held a role on the managing committee of the Travel and Tourism Association of Goa.

In more recent times, Ramos assumed responsibilities as the Area Director for Goa at IHCL, a role which saw him charting strategies for the brand’s adaptation to the new Manohar International Airport at Mopa.

The senior leadership team from IHCL is set to come to Goa to pay their last respects to Ramos, a figure hailed as the ‘Most Admired General Manager of the Decade’ in 2018.

Puneet Chhatwal, the Managing Director & CEO of IHCL, conveyed his grief by saying, “The sudden demise of our esteemed colleague and friend, Vincent Ramos, Senior Vice President at IHCL Goa and TTAG Managing Committee Member, has left us deeply saddened. A cherished presence within the TTAG Managing Committee, Vincent was not just a friend and mentor, but also a dependable colleague and an all-around wonderful human being. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends from everyone at TTAG.”
