CEO Light & Warmth Spotlight: Jorge Montanero
Meet Jorge Montanero, Chief of Security at Hilton Colon Guayaquil
Meet Jorge Montanero, Chief of Security at Hilton Colon Guayaquil and one of our 2016 CEO Light & Warmth Award Winners.
Aside from being paramount to the safety of guests and security of the hotel, Jorge has played a large role in the safety of those in Ecuador, making him an inspiring Team Member and true life saver.
Though he has only been with Hilton for two years, Jorge has been a Volunteer Firefighter in Ecuador for over 22 years. Last year when a 7.8 earthquake shook the country of Equator and caused catastrophe and chaos, Jorge mobilized and went into affected areas across the coastline. He toured five cities in seven days to perform work on collapsed buildings and provide supplies and aid to numerous families.
Jorge and his team rescued 22 people - a humanitarian effort inspirational to all and can never be forgotten!
His integrity and spirt of service inspired further humanitarian involvement and motivated other Team Members at Hilton Colon Guayaquil to make massive donations and send nine truckloads of items - 200 sets of sheets, 550 towels, 2500 pillowcases, 500 packages of clothing, 200 baskets of food and 83 mattresses - to benefit the families who suffered loss in the earthquake.
We are proud and extremely grateful to have Jorge - he is our very own hero! Jorge, thank you for embodying the very best of what hospitality means, and for truly bringing our Purpose to life! Congratulations for being one of our 2016 CEO Light & Warmth Award recipients and for epitomizing our H-I-L-T-O-N values!
