Friends Welcome program recognizes the outstanding Breck employees, businesses


BRECKENRIDGE – Four exceptional Breckenridge employees and one Breckenridge business were recognized for outstanding customer service by Friends Welcome on Wednesday during the Breckenridge Resort Chamber Ambassador Mixer, held at The Bank of the West in Breckenridge. Breckenridge employees can be nominated for the Friends Welcome award by visitors, co-workers or supervisors for demonstrating exceptional guest service at their place of work. Rewards for the four chosen employees include $100 worth of gift certificates for use in a variety of businesses in Breckenridge. In addition to honoring four outstanding guest service employees, Friends Welcome honored The Public Works Department with The Town of Breckenridge as the Business of the Month. They will automatically be entered, along with the 11 other monthly winners, to win the Business of the Year Award. Each winner will receive a free insert in the Resort Chamber monthly mailer and recognition at our BRC ambassador monthly mixers. The Friends Welcome customer service training program is free to Breckenridge businesses and takes approximately 60 minutes to complete. Employees and businesses that completed the program receive a certificate noting that they are Friends Welcome certified. Anyone in the community who exemplifies exceptional guest service may be nominated to receive the $100 of gift certificates awarded monthly. The outstanding employees who were recognized and rewarded Wednesday night were:• Seth Markowitz, Shirt Off My Back”Seth went out of his way to find what we needed at the shop. Winning smile and A+ attitude. Seth will go far in a business field.”- LeAnn Burnale, Waconia, MN• Jon Jacobs, My Thai”Jon was extremely helpful and patient explaining all the different features of Thai food. As a concierge, I wanted to be able to tell our guests what to expect from the food at My Thai. He did an excellent job and was very professional and respectful.”- Marci McCleneghan, Breckenridge, CO• Margo Tighe, Marriott’s Mountain Valley Lodge”Margo was very helpful, exuberant, flexible and fantastic at all the activities she ran, led and organized the week we stayed at the resort. She had a very positive attitude! We loved her and want to nominate her for her outstanding service!”- Gwen Wareham, Calabasas,CA• Megan Pierson, Breckenridge Central Reservations”Megan was absolutely fantastic! No one was as helpful as Megan. She did a phenomenal job. I called around and talked to other people when I was trying to find lodging. Some of them were more expensive and some of them were less expensive than the prices that Megan quoted. However, I went with Central Reservations because of Megan and the wonderful service that she provided. I could have gone with a less expensive quote, but because of Megan’s service, I chose to work with her!” – Pat Winer, Orland Park, ILNominations for the Friends Welcome Rewards and Recognition Program are currently being taken. Rewards for the next outstanding nominees will be given at the BRC Ambassador March mixer.
