Genesis Employee Nominated for Vancouver Tourism Award
I just received a letter today from the Vancouver Tourism Awards informing me that one of my Community Patrol employees, Reza Abazar-Ghafari, was nominated for the month of February due to a visitor being so impressed with his “enthusiasm, courtesy and caring display”.
These awards were first launched in 1989 in order to pay tribute to individuals who show outstanding hospitality towards visitors to Vancouver.
A committee representing the sponsors of the program selects winners from ballots submitted by visitors that are available in Where Vancouver magazine and Rocky Mountaineer’s on board publication Journeys West. This year, ballots can be found at over 65 locations around the city and visitors are also encouraged to complete a ballot online at www.vancouvertourismawards.com.
The best part of this whole nomination is that when I talked to Reza to find out about why he was nominated, he wasn’t clear about the reason due to the fact that he assists so many people in the community every day!!!!!
Great job Reza, I’m very proud and lucky to have you as an employee.
