Enchantment Resort Employee Awarded National Recognition by AH&LA


Camilo Casiano Accepts Stars of the Industry Award for Outstanding Employee of the Year


SEDONA , Ariz. (April 14, 2015)  --  Enchantment Resort is thrilled to announce that one of their longtime employees, Camilo Casiano, was recognized for outstanding service by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA).  Casiano, a steward of Enchantment Resort for the past 23 years, accepted the award for Outstanding Lodging Employee of the Year, Small Property at the award ceremony held today in Washington D.C.

The AH&LA Stars of the Industry Awards program was created more than 40 years ago to recognize outstanding accomplishments in the lodging industry.  The categories honor lodging employees and properties that best symbolize the quality service of the industry. The recipients are chosen from a large and talented pool of nominees from across the country.

“Camilo has displayed incredible commitment and loyalty throughout his entire 23 years of employment with the property,” says Bruce Grosbety, managing director of Enchantment Resort.  “Despite not owning a car, and with no public transportation to the resort, he has never been late for work. His job as a steward is not glamorous, yet he excels with consistency, has a tremendous work ethic, and accepts nothing less from his co-workers.  Always gracious and polite, he is truly a shining star of our industry.”

He is also held in high regard by his co-workers.  When Casiano announced he was retiring earlier this year, the culinary team was so devastated, he decided to stay on in a part-time capacity.  Internally, Casiano was recognized with the Employee of the Third Quarter award in 2012. In 2014, he was awarded the Stars of the Industry Award for Outstanding Employee of the Year, Small Property by the Arizona Hotel & Lodging Association (AzLTA).
