Richmond BC Hotel Manager Finalist for Chamber Award

Accent Inns, being a BC owned and operated hotel chain,  has long been a supporter and member of the Chambers of Commerce in B.C. On Wednesday we attended the Richmond Chamber of Commerce annual Awards Gala. Very fun and well run event held in the Theatre at the River Rock Hotel in Richmond BC (just a couple of minutes away from the Accent Inn)  What made this years event extra special for Accent Inns was the fact that Chris Browne, General Manager of the Accent Inn Vancouver Airport hotel, was nominated and became a finalist for the Business Leadership award. Although Chris may not have taken home the final award we are very proud of the fact that his support for the local community and businesses was recognized outside of our corporate family.  Every one of the finalists deserve a pat on the back as they were all deserving and I would have hated to be a judge. Some hard choices to make for sure.

Special congratulations go to our friends at Boston Pizza for their Hall of Fame induction and to the Rick Hansen Foundation for winning the Global News maker award.

See below for a little montage and video of Chris Browne’s big night.  Thanks to our table mates from Kwantlen University for being so much fun.  The video is a bit shaky but we were all laughing and having such a great time it was hard to keep still!
