Meet Tilahun Wolde from the Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Avenue
Each month we will showcase a housekeeping associate from the Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Avenue. This month, meet Tilahun Wolde, Laundry Attendant. If you see him around the hotel, stop and say hi.
Tilahun came to Seattle from Ethiopia in 2009. He had to leave his wife and two children, ages 7 and 10 years, back home. As a family man, he finds motivation in his family to do a better job so he can continue to support them.
He used to be a soccer player and years later become a soccer coach in a big sports club in Ethiopia.
Tilahun has been working with the Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Avenue for over two years. He started as a Dishwasher in the Kitchen and after a year, transferred to the Housekeeping Department as a Laundry Attendant. The Housekeeping team is a multicultural group so Tilahun easily connects with all associates.
Tilahun is a great associate and excellent asset. He is very dedicated to his job, self-motivated, and a team player. He cares for others at work and shows his passion for his job with a great and positive attitude. All the associates love working with Tilahun!
