After 10 years of being on the Hampton Inn Christiansburg/Blacksburg team as a Maintenance Assistant, Gary Davis is retiring. To recognize his loyalty and great attitude, Gary is named the 2018 employee of the year. 

“I always called him my “lifeline” because there wasn’t anything that I couldn’t call on him for,” says Kayla Orr, General Manager of the hotel.   

In his role, Gary did everything from shoveling for major snow storms to help guests get out of the parking lot to fixing several employees cars. He always cared for others in any way he could and showed the pride he took in his job.

His hard work and dedication to guests and fellow team members will be missed.

“As our maintenance assistant, you might see him helping to clean a room one moment only to find him jumping in to clean the lobby the next moment.  There wasn’t any job he wouldn’t do.,” said Orr.

Gary exemplified all of the Core Ideologies which represent the great Quality Oil Company values. These include:

  • Doing it because it’s right
  • Treating customers, vendors, and fellow employees as we would like to be treated
  • Being financially responsible
  • Being better today than yesterday

The Hampton Inn Christiansburg/Blacksburg will definitely miss his presence!
