Chief Operations Officer
Hasani Wattley is known as a General of Caribbean entertainment, as one half of the popular Carnival events brand – Caesar’s Army.
As the Chief Operations Officer and Co-owner of Caesar’s Army, he’s done more than throw the crème de la crème of fetes. He has grown a brand that has successfully penetrated Caribbean and North American Diaspora markets.
But that’s just one side of him. He’s also a project management and business consultant with an eye for the big picture buoyed by strategic details.
Pivoting is in his blood.
An engineer by profession, he left his eight-year career in oil and gas – which included projects in Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, and Guyana, among other countries – to start Caesar’s Army Limited in 2006.
Over the past 14 years in “The Army”, he also became a shareholder and the Senior Manager for Rogue Mas Band responsible for operations and logistics. Hasani also manages fashion designer Rhion Romany, who has become a highly sought designer locally.
In love with business strategy, he channels his project management, engineering, and financial experience into creating sustainable systems for businesses through his second company – North Star Consulting Services. North Star provides project management, engineering management consultancy, international events management, and business consulting services.
Hasani is a registered engineer with the Trinidad and Tobago Board of Engineering, and holds a BSc in Mechanical Engineering (Honours) from The University of the West Indies. Additionally, he is a certified Project Manager (PMP) with the internationally recognized Project Management Institute, and holds a Diploma in Financial Management from the Association of Chartered and Certified Accountants. He also holds a CSME skilled worker certificate, which allows him to work throughout the English-speaking Caribbean.
