Why are you nominating this candidate?
In his young career as a Concierge, Jonathan has earned his position in a team of “legends” at The Legend. After finishing his hotel business school he had the option for a career in hotel management, but chose for the profession of Concierge. During his period as internship he fulfilled some Concierge roles and this was when he knew, some day I’ll become a Concierge. Because of his determination he went straight for his goal. And has earned his position all to his devotion and dedication to the job and our society.
