2023 Les Clefs d’Or Award Nominee- CANADA
Established in 2008, the Les Clefs d’Or Award celebrates and recognizes the talents and accomplishments of young Concierges.
Meet Michael Lombardi, candidate for the 2023 Les Clefs d’Or Award. Michael served on the Regional Board for Alberta as Vice Director in 2015, and then transitioned back to his home in Alliston, Ontario later that year. He was instantly welcomed into the Ontario Region and soon became the Vice Director for one term and is now the Director of the Ontario Region , now serving his second term.
Michael endured and continues to guide his region through one of the toughest economic downfalls of the Great Lockdown, the worst recession since the Great Depression, and far worse than the Global Financial Crisis. As the recovery starts with a return of his members to their concierge roles , Michael strives to keep his region strong and united.
He fosters strong partnerships with hospitality and tourism sponsors, he is one of strongest regional fund raisers and one of the leading regions in best practices, sustainability, and in growth and development in memberships of Les Clefs d’Or Canada.
We are very proud to stand beside him on this International stage running against top contenders in the world at the 67th UICH International Congress in Turkey in March 2023.
