Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel Celebrates Long-Term Associates

Dedicated Individuals Honored for Decades of Service at St. Louis Business Hotel

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - In today's job market, things can change as quickly as the weather, so when it comes to finding employees who are dedicated and willing to stick it out through both good and tough times, businesses know that those people are worth holding on to. Last month, the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel celebrated eight of its associates, all of whom have given at least 25 years of service to the St. Louis business hotel.

Michael Sanders, general manager of this hotel near University City, MO, hosted a reception this past October to honor these hard-working Renaissance associates. Included in the 25 years of service group are Larry Franks, bell captain; Keith Hearndon, lead steward; Larry Johnson, banquet captain; Anita Mix, laundry attendant and Judy Trask, banquet captain (Mix and Trask both started work the same day in 1988). The reception also recognized three associates who have dedicated an astounding 30 years of excellence and applied for their positions while the hotel was still under construction. They include Barbara Perkins, banquet server; Terrence Tolley, line cook and Gerard Grotegeers, a.k.a. "The Muffin Man," line cook. 

"We are proud to honor these individuals and sincerely thank them for their many years of service to the hotel and guests," Sanders says. 

Renaissance associates like those honored at the reception are part of what makes this St. Louis airport luxury hotel a favorite with visitors. In addition to first-class service, guests are treated to a boutique hotel experience that's as comfortable as it is stylish, and is conveniently located adjacent to the airport and minutes from downtown businesses, attractions and entertainment.
