The House of Representatives Honors Nils Stolzlechner, General Manager of Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf & Beach Resort
Special recognition for leadership during recovery process following Hurricane María
(Río Grande, July 25, 2019) - The House of Representatives distinguishes Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf & Beach Resort’s General Manager Nils Stolzlechner as one of the island’s great leaders in the recovery process during the aftermath of Hurricane María. Stolzlechner was honored for his leadership over significant relief efforts to reopen the resort for first-response and private electricity workers almost immediately after the hurricane hit - an effort which also kept many team members employed during the island-wide crisis.
Stolzlechner, an experienced general manager and veteran Wyndham team member, was appointed to the role and moved to Puerto Rico just one month before Hurricanes Irma and María made landfall.
“During the aftermath of Hurricane María, Nils not only helped his personnel, giving them shelter and providing water and food, but he also directed, with the resort’s volunteers, an effort with the local community to help establish local housing for the elderly. Nils demonstrated strong leadership skills and love to his new home in Puerto Rico.” said the motion from Representative Víctor Parés Otero.
“When I arrived to Puerto Rico, I had no idea I would experience the worst catastrophe the island has had to endure in its modern history. Through it all, I witnessed the resiliency, strength and bravery of the Puerto Rican community. It is my honor and privilege to be part of this new chapter for Puerto Rico,” said Nils Stolzlechner.
The official House of Representatives motion was presented in a small ceremony held in the resort’s restaurant Iguanas Cocina Puertorriqueña, located in the recently reopened Clubhouse. All major renovations and repairs needed in the resort after the hurricanes were completed earlier this year.
