Congratulations to the 2018 Managers of the Year! During last month’s Senior Management Christmas Party, Jimmy Pacheco was named the Large Property Manager of the Year, and Alicia McGuire was named the Small Property Manager of the Year!
Jimmy started working for Traditions Spirits in 2009 as a housekeeper at the Riverwind Hotel, and was promoted to Housekeeping Inspector within 90 days. Shortly thereafter, he was promoted once again to Housekeeping Supervisor. Eventually, Jimmy became the Housekeeping Manager, and later the Room Operations Manager. A year ago, he was promoted to his current position as General Manager. He is the perfect example of what we endorse, and that is to join our family, and “Grow With Us”! Jimmy stated that he was excited to take on more responsibility over the years and to become the leader of a great place to work!
This was the second Manager of the Year award for Alicia McGuire! She received the same award in 2016, and has continued to grow and shine with the company! She started working for Traditions Spirits in 2011 as a Beverage Server at our beverage department inside WinStar World Casino, and like Jimmy, she was also promoted within 90 days, to a lead position. She later began bartending at Thackerville Gaming Center (now Border Casino), and in 2012, became the manager of the bar! This month she was promoted once again, this time to Beverage Director of the new Border Casino, which will open in February!
Congratulations to both of these very deserving managers, who represent exactly what we look for in our employees, supervisors, and managers!
