Team Leaders
"The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time."

      ~ Sir Winston Churchill

At Chartwell we understand that our greatest assets are not buildings but people. Just as a chain is no stronger than its weakest link, so do we rely upon the integrity and dedication of each member of our staff. By ongoing development of our hospitality professionals and promoting from within we forge strong bonds and encourage leadership. Our team leaders exemplify this strategy at work.

Hampton Inn & Suites Binghamton/Vestal, NY
Larry Boone

Larry has worked at the Hampton Inn & Suites since its opening in 1999. He worked diligently to make sure all areas of the hotel were operational and running smoothly. Returning to us after a short retirement, it's obvious that Larry's work ethic and general knowledge of building maintenance has only grown and solidified.

Larry has been instrumental in coordinating the lobby renovations at the hotel. He has helped unload and keep track of all of the furniture and materials. He has worked with the GC and electrician to answer any questions about the construction of the building.

He is always happy to help out whenever needed, and takes time to educate other staff members. Larry is dedicated and takes great pride in his work.

Congratulations Larry!
