The article reports that rest of the world discovered Sea Island in 2004 when it hosted the G-8 Summit, but generations of loyal visitors have enjoyed its tradition of hospitality. There are many days one can find Sea Island Company Chairman and CEO Bill Jones III chatting with a pastry chef or a gardener or a silver polisher in one of the company's resort properties on Sea Island or St. Simons Island. But these conversations with employees are more likely to be about shared memories than job performance. So valued is tradition at Sea Island that new employees now get formal history lessons and mentoring from veterans to imbue them with the island's resort culture.
