Rob Babcock was born in upstate New York and focused his professional life in hospitality, specifically hotel and resort operations. He has held senior management positions for Stouffers, Renaissance, Marriott and Intrawest properties in New York, Phoenix, Seattle, the Virgin Islands, St. Petersburg and Destin. His last position before joining Portofino was Regional VP/General Manager for Intrawest. In addition to running the day to day operation of the 2400-acre Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort, he was also responsible for four other Resorts in Northwest Florida. In June 2008, Mr. Babcock left the corporate world to follow his vision of building a management company that would set the industry standard for excellence in resort condominium management. This would include creating a company culture focused on strong values, guest service, rewarding outstanding performance, accountability and fairness. As a result of much planning, Premier Island Management Group was established. Mr. Babcock assembled a dedicated team of detail-oriented, service-minded professionals who excel in their areas and are committed to personalized service for owners and guests. He has truly been an integral part of making Portofino Island the destination in Pensacola Beach that offers the perfect balance of indulgence and natural beauty.
