Biography

As the Chief Executive Officer for Chukka Caribbean Adventures Group, Marc has taken the knowledge and experience garnered from working at Chukka Cove Farm on weekends and during holidays, to become instrumental in the development and growth of the company.

Under his influential leadership, the CCA Group has evolved significantly, expanding from its initial offering of the signature “Horseback Ride N’Swim” tour to now encompassing an impressive portfolio of over 85 Nature Adventure destination experiences across Jamaica, Belize, Grand Turk, Dominican Republic, Barbados, and St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands).

Marc left college in 1992 to return to Jamaica and assume the role of Managing Director for Tropical Battery Co. Ltd, a family-owned business. This transition occurred when Daniel “Danny” Melville decided to pass on the reins, entrusting Marc with the responsibility of guiding the company.

Marc’s impact extends beyond Chukka Caribbean Adventures and Tropical Battery, as he actively contributes to the governance of various organizations. He serves on the Board of Directors for Chukka Caribbean Adventures, Tropical Battery Company Ltd, Diverze Assets Inc., Rainforest Seafoods Ltd., and BCMG Insurance Brokers. Additionally, he held a board position with the Jamaica Tourist Board from 2012 to early 2016.

In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the Tourism Sector, Marc was honored with the Order of Distinction in the rank of Officer (OD) in October 2022.

Marc enjoys spending quality time with his children and playing polo.
