This month, there was no question who we should highlight in our “One of Us” profile: Mr. Xuan Lu. Xuan is the Hotel Director at Wind Creek Wetumpka, and since joining us about five years ago, he has become an invaluable addition to our team. We sat down with Xuan recently to learn a little more about him.

What do you feel you do that makes you such a great employee?
I select team members with genuine engagement and positive energy, then work with them closely to mentor them, develop their talents, and prepare them for future opportunities. I don’t focus on the negatives; instead, I focus my energy on what I can do to help others whenever possible.
Do you have any advice for those who wish to be successful?
Lead by greatness of character, as David Lapin has so succinctly put it.
What do you enjoy about working at Wind Creek?
I enjoy working at Wind Creek because I can be myself and know that I am valued by my team, and what I do makes a difference for our team and our Guests.
Do you have anything you would like to share with our Guests?
We have a wonderful team of authentic and friendly people who take pleasure in serving our Guests. We love it when our Guests mention that they have a wonderful time at Wind Creek, and how friendly and helpful everyone is. Our goal is to make sure our Guests have fun, feel valued and appreciated, and ?leave thinking of coming back whenever possible.
