Congratulations William!

Your great work, the whole SPG program and this forum encouraged me to become Plat!
Since I stay only on leisure it is hard to make these lot of stays and all with *wood. But I became a Fan and will continue.

Thanks to everyone. Sorry I am so late to reply, but as VPescado said, I took an extra day after Pascha to recover both from traveling and the holiday. Then today I get here and there are 82 emails in my Inbox at work - and I haven't even gone to the [email protected] Inbox yet.

Gee, what can I say? Randy really knows how to surprise someone. If you don't believe me, ask his girlfriend to whom he proposed at the end of the evening. If you ask me, Randy made out better than any of the programs. My heartiest congratulations to both him and his intended. As for the Industry Impact award - what an honor. Like I said last Thursday, I am glad to accept it on behalf of everyone who does customer service for Starwood and Starwood Preferred Guest.

And another 12 Freddies for the Starwood Preferred Guest program. That is even more amazing to me personally. It is good to know that despite some problems we had with communication earlier in the year, that the membership in general was overwhelmingly willing to forgive us for it. Jim Berra asked me to pass on his personal thanks to each and every member who voted for us. Without you we would have no purpose and no inspiration to become even better than we have been in the past.

So thanks for the kudos, but now it's time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work on next year.

Everyone else has said it for me. This is part of why I remain loyal to SPG. Thanks, William.

To me, William is the definition of Customer Service. You go that extra mile.

Write a book on how you do it, and you'll have a best seller.

A belated Congratulations, William, for this incredibly well-deserved honor.

Cost of a hotel stay: Varies

Cost of mini-bar items: Too Much

Knowing that William & SPG CS exist: Priceless

William & the rest of the SPG CS team, as so many of us have expressed time & again, you make one helluva difference...
