It’s that time of year again when we celebrate Team Members who have gone above and beyond expectations to spread the light and warmth of hospitality. We acknowledge them annually with Hilton’s most prestigious form of Team Member recognition: the CEO Light & Warmth Award. We received 750+ nominations, more than double the amount in 2021, and 15 Team Members and two teams were chosen thanks to their inspiring leadership, dedication to our Hilton values, and contributions to our business. Congratulations to our seven Americas winners:

  • Hospitality isn’t possible without care, and Kim Dennis, General Manager at Homewood Suites by Hilton Portland. Kim, makes everyone feel like family. She has a loving spirit and takes the time to acknowledge every guest, usually by name. An industry veteran and long-term General Manager, Kim has led her hotel to over 90% occupancy year to date.
