Without associates like you going above and beyond for our guests as well as greeting and assisting guests as soon as they walk through our door the Gardens wouldn’t be the warm and friendly place many have come to enjoy!

Values Champions 2013!

On Wednesday, May 29th, 2013, four of our Denihan 2013 Values Champions were announced at the Corporate Office.  In an effort to recognize as well as really surprise our winners, our “Denihan FLASH MOB” went into full effect!  Armed with balloons, a really loud cow bell and a large crowd of associates, we shocked our winners in the middle of their work day with applause and congratulations. 

Our 2013 Values Champions include: Ellen Brown (Development), David Sandler (Operations), Christian Betheuil (Financial Services), and Cindy Johnston (Human Resources).

After the ringing in everyone’s ears from the cow bell wore off :), David Duncan presented our Values Champions with their awards at our “Meet and Greet” hosted by the Restaurant and Bars team.  Congratulations to our Values Champions for 2013! Be on the look out for our “Denihan Flash Mob” to strike again when we announce our May Values Champion!
