Curtis Slade, Member Les Clef D’or Canada
We are proud to introduce our newest member of the prestigious Les Clefs d’ Or Canada, Mr. Curtis Slade!
Curtis began his journey in Kananaskis Village, Alberta in 1999 with the then Canadian Pacific Hotel and Resorts. He worked briefly in Delta and Marriott properties until his passion for travel and hospitality took him 42,000ft in the sky as a cabin crew for Zoom Airlines. After traveling all over the world, he found that Vancouver was the city of his dreams, and his goal was to help visitors explore and discover all the hidden gems that this beautiful city has to offer.
After his stint as a cabin crew, Curtis returned to the hotel industry and rejoined the Marriott Pinnacle Hotel by working in a variety of positions, until he landed a position at the Concierge Desk in the summer of 2011.
Curtis credits his former colleague and senior concierge, Ms. Verinda Doman, for inspiring him, as well as providing him with the tools and knowledge to become the concierge he is today. In September 2013, Curtis realized it was time for a change, and to elevate his skills as a concierge, he joined the team at Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver. While there, Curtis worked closely with the former director of BC Les Clefs d’ Or, Mr. Stephane Mouttet, who guided and groomed him on 5 star training.
Curtis officially joined the Wedgewood Team in June 2015, and with the support of the Hotel’s Staff and Management, he submitted his application for membership with the BC region of Les Clef d’ Or Canada. As of last week, Curtis is the honoured recipient of the much coveted Gold Keys, which he proudly displays on the lapels of his neatly tailored jacket.
Curtis, along with everyone at the Wedgewood Hotel and Spa, looks forward to providing you with the most memorable experience on your next trip to Vancouver.
