What a Week for Accent Inns Team Members!

Friday, October 28th, 2011
Mandy Farmer, President & CEO of Accent Inns BC hotel group

Mandy Farmer, not only contributes her time but supports her staff

We don’t usually create a list such as this but this has been an extra exciting week for several of our Accent Inn team members. We just had to talk about it!

Katie Bahnsen, General Manager of our Kamloops hotel, is the current president of the Kamloops Accommodation Association. The Kamloops hoteliers joined together in a membership campaign and  donated $5 per occupied room on August 1  to the ICCH Wish Fund.  Katie had the wonderful honor on behalf of the Association to  present a cheque for $9102 to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation. The donated funds will go towards the Intensive Care Unit at RIH.

“It’s such an incredible feeling to work for an organization that supports its staff and encourages community involvement”

Chris Browne, General Manager of the Accent Inn Vancouver Airport hotel, has been nominated for a Richmond Chamber of Commerce Business Leadership Award. Considering his efforts to support the community through Rotary and other groups, we certainly feel the recognition is well deserved. (more…)

This July Alex Fraser, son of the famous Julia Fraser (Regional Sales Manager for Accent Inns Kelowna and Kamloops) won a silver medal at the BC Summer Games in Langley. Alex played for the Thompson-Okanagan Team which finished 1st in their pool which earned them a semi-final game against Vancouver Island. In the semi-final game, they defeated Vancouver Island 8-7 (tough for Accent Inn Victoria staff routing for the Vancouver Island team). “It was a thrilling game and it was probably the best the Thompson-Okanagan Team has ever played”, said Julia Fraser, Regional Sales Manager and proud Mom. In the Championship Final for the Gold, they lost a heartbreaker to Fraser River/Delta 6-3 (a tough loss for our Accent Inn Vancouver Airport staff)

“Iron Man” Alex Fraser played all 5 games, pitched and played first base.

Accent Inns BC Hotel Sales team heads north by RV

Recently the Accent Inns sales team, Donna Price, Helen Wright, Julia Fraser and Kim Jones set out on a 3,000 km journey to re-position 2 Fraserway RV camper trucks from Vancouver to Whitehorse, making sales calls along the way.

First of all we would like to thank Fraserway RV for setting us up in their lovely brand new truck and campers, our homes away from home!  The 2011 Ford 450 Supercab trucks were not only spacious and comfortable but they were very easy for us large truck novice gals to drive! (and the talk of the towns as we rolled in.) (more…)
