Mr. Bodnar has been at Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa since 2005. Previously he worked in the local hospitality market for a main competitor.
Awarded annually, nominees are selected, evaluated, and voted by their peers for their knowledge, involvement, outstanding guest service, positive and friendly attitudes, and good standing within the hotel. Since nominations come from peers and he was chosen by a vote of his colleagues, this award is a real honor. “It is a pleasure to recognize Billy with this award,” said Ed Conway, General Manager. “I value all of our employees, who are all a part of our exceptional guest service here at Sedona Rouge.
