Best Western Hotels & Resorts today announced that Vice President of Operations Bruce Wienberg has been named a Gold Stevie Award winner in the Maverick of the Year - Consumer Services category. This year marks the 16th Annual American Business Awards - the premier business awards program in the U.S., with winners selected from a pool of more than 3,700 nominations across all industries. Wienberg's win is a significant accomplishment for the hospitality industry veteran and for Best Western Hotels & Resorts.

"Bruce's commitment to enhancing the customer experience has been a driving force behind our brand's evolution and a catalyst for elevating industry standards," said Ron Pohl, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, Best Western Hotels & Resorts. "The Maverick of the Year Award is truly fitting for a professional like Bruce, whose forward-thinking and innovative mindset makes an impact on our business daily."

Since joining Best Western Hotels & Resorts in 2003, Wienberg has demonstrated his commitment to innovation and success. His assistance in rolling out Best Western's award-winning I Care(R) Every Guest Every Time training program, which utilizes industry-leading Mursion avatar training simulations, has created the highest guest satisfaction scores in the company's history. The program has also helped Best Western land a spot on Fast Company's Top 10 Most Innovative Companies list in the AR/VR category. Wienberg also championed the brand's new "Build Your Own" breakfast program, which is now available at most Best Western-branded properties and emulated at hotels across the globe.

"The nominations submitted for The 2018 American Business Awards were outstanding. The competition was intense, and those recognized as Stevie Award winners should be immensely proud of this accomplishment," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
