“Nick embodies everything the JW stands for – impeccable service, quality experiences and heart. If Nick were a superhero, his uniform would have a huge JW on the chest,” said George Aquino, vice president and managing director, AHC+Hospitality. I could not be happier to see Nick achieve his ultimate goal of becoming the JW Marriott general manager and watch him continue to elevate the JW experience with his passion and leadership.”
