Associate Corner

Vesta Hospitality's Work Hard…Live FREE program is an associate incentive that gives one lucky winner the chance to have their rent/mortgage paid for a year. On February 23, 2016 via live feed from Vancouver, Washington Brent Sestic's name was randomly drawn as the 2015 winner.

Brent is the epitome of a hospitality associate. As Banquet Server / Bartender at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes, Brent has great opportunities to influence hotel guests with his consistently stellar customer service. He humbly engages and serves the guest, which in turn endears the guest to Riverhouse on the Deschutes. His expertise and extensive years of hospitality experience has honed Brent into a hardworking, trustworthy, natural leader for which the staff and his co-workers respect him. Because of these attributes Brent was voted Associate of the Month for April 2015.

Having his name drawn as the Work Hard Live Free winner for 2015 certainly means a lot to Brent. “I work hard to support my family, not just financially, but also as a foundation for personal and professional growth. When it is difficult to pay rent, activities such as piano lessons and sports sometimes fall by the wayside. Thanks to the Work Hard, Live Free program, I will now have a cushion to allow for my family members to participate in enriching extracurricular activities. I am excited to watch them learn and grow, and I'm proud that I have been given the chance to provide opportunities for them.”

Congratulations Brent, enjoy living free for a year!
