“Moving into Wyndham, I had a vision for the business and it was a lot different to what others had in mind. And the timeshare industry has been around for years and I was trying to make major changes in direction and philosophy [which] was very challenging for some people. I was seen as a young CEO. Looking back, I was trying to move too quickly, was too aggressive. That is one of the key learnings I had” – Barry Robinson.
