Towne Park Associates? Try Heroes.

Jose Zavala

Account Manager Jose Zavala & Stacy Smith, Hyatt Place General Manager

Two Towne Park associates in Washington, DC showed courageous and selfless leadership late last year.

Account Manager Jose Zavala and Lance Range were recognized by Hyatt Place Washington, DC and Hilton Garden Inn Washington DC/U.S. Capitol for their leadership during a recent shooting that occurred in the vicinity of these two properties.

On Friday, December 26, 2014 around the NoMa neighborhood, there was a major incident that included gunshots fired and a chaotic scene with hundreds of partygoers outside a local club near the two Washington, DC hotels.  Thankfully, no one was hurt… in no small part to Jose, who was on-site and made sure our guests and associates at both sites were safe and out of harm’s way.  The General Managers at each hotel were extremely appreciative of Jose’s heroism and thankful to have Jose on-site in their absence.  One General Manager even awarded Jose with a Certificate of Excellence and Appreciation.

I would like to personally thank both Lance and Jose publicly on behalf of Towne Park Nation.  You should be proud of the example you’ve set for everyone!
