Hawthorne Hotel Honors May Employee of the Month
(L to R, Juli Lederhaus, Jennifer Normant, Tony Baez and Ken O'Keefe)
Chefs Jenn and Ken were so adamant in their nomination and lobbying for the award to go to Tony -- we just had to find a way for all three of them to be here when Tony and the rest of the management team would be present to award him this honor.
Tony has a quiet, polite way about him, and that was evident in these photos that we snapped as we surprised him at work in the kitchen on Monday afternoon.
Tony Baez was selected as our part-time employee of the month for May, 2009, and it took us a little while to reconcile his schedule with all of the managers who wanted to be present to honor him with this award. Tony works for us both here at the Hawthorne Hotel, as well as for our offsite catering division at the Peabody Essex Museum. He was cited for being hard-working, dependable, and versatile, as well as just plain nice.
Thank you for all the work that you do, in the heart of the hotel and beyond, Tony! We sincerely appreciate all of your hard work!!!
