Rufo was nominated by Fransisca van Esta Tjallingii who praised his extraordinary ability to deal with unforeseen challenges in the after-hours, in his position as the resort’s night manager. She also complimented his willingness to pitch in on behalf of other departments at all hours of the night, and his dedicated support of the total resort operation. Having been previously nominated four times, Rufo’s win came of no surprise. “I sleep well at night with Rufo at the helm,” added General Manager Rob Smith, “ the resort is fortunate to have such solid night management,” he concluded .
