BUFFALO, New York – On Tuesday May 8, 2018 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center the Beacon Awards luncheon named its list of winners. The new category Rookie of the year was announced for General Managers who have been in their position for two years or less. One of the two winners was Hyatt Place Buffalo/ Amherst General Manager Matthew Chiazza. Matthew is not new to the industry but new to the position of General Manager of the 137 room Hyatt Place hotel, located just off the 290 in quaint Amherst, New York.
Some of the comments from his staff who nominated him were:
“Matt is a team player. He is always willing to help. It is not abnormal to see him in a suit, tie tucked, making beds, emptying linen bins, or making eggs. His attitude towards his team is one that resonates with the entire staff.” He goes above and beyond, and it makes the staff go the extra mile also.
”Matt, is well versed in many departments, and uses his skills and ability to help each team member.”
Matthew says on a daily basis “we are all a team,” and it is felt in his actions.
