Wyndham Vacation Ownership Awards Fourth Winner of the Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes

ORLANDO, Fla. (January 3, 2014) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE:WYN), awarded a brand new luxury car to Hollis Cox during the fourth drawing in the Company’s Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes. In an event that took place at Wyndham Ocean Boulevard, company executives presented Hollis, of Iberville, La., with a 2014 Lexus ISC.

“When I first received the call telling me I had won, I thought it was friends playing a trick on me,” said Hollis Cox. “You never know people who actually win a car; they’re just a name on a list.”

Hollis soon realized the call wasn’t a joke as plans were made for him to attend the prize presentation in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Hollis, a CLUB WYNDHAM® owner since 2012, was joined by his daughter, also a CLUB WYNDHAM owner, and two grandchildren for the special event.

“Hollis’ story is illustrative of the value of owning with Wyndham,” said Jeff Myers, WVO’s chief sales & marketing officer. “Hollis realized the benefit of ownership after traveling with his daughter’s points. Since he purchased last year, he’s used his own points to spend time with his mother, children and grandchildren. Making memories is truly the purpose of vacation ownership, and it’s a great day when we can provide such a wonderful family with yet another amazing memory.”

In August 2013, during a stay at Wyndham Riverside Suites, Hollis was entered into the sweepstakes. In September, his name was randomly drawn from more than 90,000 entries.

Owners and guests were automatically entered in Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes when they attended a sales presentation or owner update at a participating resort. Previous winners of the sweepstakes were George and Judy Maykowskyj of Colbert, Wash.; Chris and Melissa Todd of Humboldt, Tenn.; and Wydea Winters of Charlotte, N.C.

WVO Associates Donate $2,600 and Hundreds of Items in Support of Space to Grow's Baskets of Love Program

The Board Members of Wyndham Vacation Ownership’s (WVO) Women On Their Way (WOTW) — an Associate Business Group that aims to help female associates advance within the Company while creating a culture of camaraderie, support and teamwork — held a two-part fundraising and donation drive to benefit Space to Grow’s Baskets of Love program. The Baskets of Love program benefits the Women’s Residential & Counseling Center (WRCC), a program within the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida that provides transitional housing for women and children. The program supports and empowers these women and children (more than 75 percent have been victims of domestic violence) on their way to becoming self sufficient again. Each year Space to Grow provides approximately 70 baskets for the residents at WRCC.

The two-part drive, which took place between February 4 and February 14, encouraged Orlando-based associates to donate essential toiletries, personal care and hygiene products and laundry supplies. In addition, WOTW held a fundraiser through the sales of Sweet! By Good Golly Miss Holly cupcakes. One thousand cupcakes were sold during the drive, raising $2,000 for the women and children at WRCC.

“The ladies of Space to Grow would like to thank the Wyndham team for participating in our 9th Annual Baskets of Love,” said Gigi Moorman, co-founder, Space to Grow. “Your dedication to assisting the women and children at WRCC warmed our hearts.”

Space to Grow is a grassroots non-profit organization that has been supporting women and children in Orlando since 2005.

During a donation presentation event on February 20, representatives from WCRR, Coalition for the Homeless and Space to Grow joined WOTW board members to receive the generous donations from WVO associates. In total — thanks to cupcake sales, the toiletry donations and additional monetary donations — WOTW was able to present the Baskets of Love program with $2,601 and more than eight baskets of personal items.

Margaritaville Vacation Club® Celebrates Groundbreaking Ceremony with the Governor of St. Thomas

 

James Benton (Benton Construction), David Cooper (Moss & Associates), Lisa Hamilton (President Hotel & Tourism Association), Chad Moss (Moss & Associates), Governor John P. de Jongh, Jr., Monique Sibilly-Hodge (Assistant Commissioner of Tourism), Percival Clouden (CEO, Economic Development Association), Andrew McAllister (Moss & Associates)

 

ORLANDO, Fla. (March 27, 2014)Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies(NYSE:WYN), and Margaritaville Hospitality Group, celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony of the first-ever Margaritaville Vacation Club®resort in St. Thomas.

 

The event took place on February 12, 2014, at the future home of Wyndham St. Thomas, located on the northeast side of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Wyndham Vacation Ownership leaders including Gary Hyde, senior vice president, resort operations and Rob Landry, vice president, project management, development planning and construction, joined St. Thomas Governor, John P. de Jongh, Jr., and commissioners and staff from St. Thomas EDA, DPNR and Tourism to mark this exciting event.

 

“We’re thrilled to see construction begin at Margaritaville Vacation Club,” said Governor de Jongh. “Hospitality is the livelihood of our island and this new resort will open up so many opportunities for the people of St. Thomas.”

In 2013, Wyndham Vacation Ownership and Margaritaville Hospitality Group announced their plans to redevelop the former Grand Beach Palace Resort. Wyndham St. Thomas, a Margaritaville Vacation Club resort, is anticipated to open in early 2015 and will be the first resort of its kind in the world.

Construction will take place in two phases over the next three years, including the conversion of its 290 existing hotel rooms into 262 fully furnished condominium-style timeshare units. The renovation will begin with the seven beachfront buildings and common areas including reception, pool area and 5 O’clock Somewhere bar. A Margaritaville® restaurant, dive shop with water activities and venues for live music are also included in the plan at this time.

 

Wyndham Vacation Ownership has hired J. Benton Construction of St. Croix in a joint venture with Moss & Associates of Florida to complete the renovation and construction. The Company will be looking for local craftsman to work on the renovation of the former Grand Beach Palace Resort. Interested parties can contact jbmossjobs@mossemail.com. The design team for the resort includes L2 Studios architecture and Harris Civil Engineers, who have been involved with other USVI projects, as well as Design Poole interiors and McBride Company designers.

 

Upon the completion of the full opening of the resort, approximately 125 full-time jobs ranging from front-desk clerks to sales associates will have been created. As an employer of choice, full time associates will receive comprehensive health and welfare benefit packages. Wyndham Vacation Ownership anticipates that hiring for these positions will begin later this year and interested applicants will be able to apply online at: WVOJobs.com. 

 

The Company also recently began sales of Margaritaville Vacation Club. To learn more visit http://www.margaritavillevacationclub.com.

Wyndham Vacation Ownership Named Outstanding Philanthropic Corporation

ORLANDO, Fla. (November 18, 2016) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE: WYN), was awarded the 2016 Heart of Florida United Way Award for “Outstanding Philanthropic Corporation” by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Central Florida Chapter. This recognition is awarded to the corporation or corporate foundation that prioritizes philanthropy in the Central Florida community and is instrumental in encouraging others to be involved.

“We are truly honored to be recognized with the “Outstanding Philanthropic Award” from the Association of Fundraising Professionals,” said Franz Hanning, president and chief executive officer at Wyndham Vacation Ownership. “At Wyndham, strengthening our communities and making a positive difference in the lives of others defines who we are as a company. Among our core values is our relentless commitment to improve the world around us, and we encourage all associates to support the communities where they live and work. I am incredibly proud of our passionate, engaged associates who are responsible for bringing to life our Count On Me! service culture each and every day.”

WVO was nominated for this award by the leadership team at Shepherd’s Hope – a nonprofit organization that provides free medical care to the uninsured and underinsured men, women and children in Central Florida. Since 2010, WVO has actively supported Shepherd’s Hope through volunteer service and donations, notably serving as a presenting sponsor at the annual Shepherd’s Hope Celebrity Golf Classic. The event has generated more than $1 million over the years to provide nearly 12,000 individuals with medical care they would not otherwise have been able to receive.

“It is sincerely our honor to have nominated Wyndham Vacation Ownership in recognition for their exceptional philanthropic spirit,” said Marni Stahlman, president/CEO of Shepherd’s Hope. “The company’s service to our community comes through a whole-hearted team effort that is visible with countless volunteer hours and service to hundreds of non-profit organizations including Shepherd’s Hope.”

This year, Wyndham Vacation Ownership celebrates its 50th anniversary and paramount in the brand’s legacy has been its commitment to give back. In Central Florida, WVO remains committed to enhancing the community through sustained corporate social responsibility and the support of organizations that make vacation dreams come true for families. Since 2009, WVO has supported Serious Fun Children’s Network camps, which provide a carefree, nurturing physically safe and medically sound setting for children with serious illnesses to experience the magic of camp. WVO maintains a strong relationship with Camp Boggy Creek in Eustis, Florida, and associates frequently volunteer, provide in-kind donations and participate in annual fundraising events. Last year, WVO donated more than $80,000 to Camp Boggy Creek and thousands more in volunteer hours and in-kind donations.

Throughout the past year alone, WVO donated $73,000 and dedicated countless volunteer hours with hundreds of associates at Give Kids the World (GKTW) Village – a 79-acre, non-profit "storybook" resort in Kissimmee, Florida for families with children facing life-threatening illnesses. In 2014, the company played an integral role in the Give Kids the World (GKTW) “Extreme Village Makeover” where 400 WVO associates supported the initiative, renovating 88 villas with new paint, flooring, kitchens and baths, furniture, electrical, recycling materials and more. The initiative earned WVO recognition as the ACE Outstanding Philanthropic Corporation by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA).

As part of the company’s philanthropic commitment, WVO associates are offered one day of paid-time-off annually for community service known as a “Wish Day,” allowing them the chance to give back to their local area. Last year, 6,886 WVO associates donated more than 36,000 volunteer hours.

Wyndham Vacation Ownership Receives Its First Gold LEED Certification from U.S. Green Building Council

ORLANDO, Fla. (April 03, 2014) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE: WYN) received its first-ever gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program for the company’s headquarters building at 6277 Sea Harbor Drive in Orlando, Fla. The certification makes the WVO headquarters the largest LEED-CI (Commericial Interiors) Gold level certified project in the state of Florida and among the largest LEED-CI (Commercial Interiors) 2009 Gold Level Certified Project in the Southeast U.S.

LEED is a third-party certification program and premier benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. It uses a point system to determine the environmental merits of a building, with four levels of certification, depending on how many points the project has earned: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum. A framework for delivering operational benefits throughout the life of the building, the rating system encourages owners and operators of existing buildings to implement sustainable practices and reduce the environmental impacts of their buildings.  It also allows them to address the major aspects of ongoing building operations and maintenance.

Prior to WVO moving into its new headquarters at the end of 2012, the Sea Harbor Office Center underwent an impressive build-to-suit renovation, including sustainable design and furnishing of an office environment, energy efficiency and superior employee comfort and diversion of construction waste from local landfills. The Sea Harbor Office Center is owned by an affiliate of Lexington Realty Trust.

“Attaining LEED Gold certification for WVO’s Orlando corporate headquarters supports our continued commitment to corporate social responsibility and the environment,” said Julie MacPherson, vice president, facilities, Wyndham Vacation Ownership. “In 2008 we achieved LEED Silver Certification at another of our Orlando offices  and our recent move provided us with the opportunity to pursue innovative ways to build on our past achievements and maximize our green efforts.”   

Receiving 66 points out of 100, WVO achieved Gold Certification through:

  • Reducing its energy use for lighting by 32 percent
  • Reducing its energy use for HVAC by 31 percent
  • Reducing water consumption 41 percent through the use of low-flow toilets, faucets and fitness center showers
  • Diverting 89 percent of construction waste from the landfill
  • Controlling 88 percent of lighting through occupancy sensors
  • Installing a heat reflective ENERGY STAR-rated cool roof
  • Using 97 percent new ENERGY STAR equipment and appliances
  • Maximizing daylight and access to views
  • Low-emitting materials such as paints, sealants, adhesives, flooring, and engineered wood products
  • Implementing an ergonomics program focused on furniture options and associate coaching

At its headquarters in Orlando, Fla., the company uses mostly LED and fluorescent lighting,  is in close proximity to LYNX Bus services, serves sustainable and fair trade Arbor Day Coffee, offers a carpooling program through ReThink Your Commute and provides predominantly shaded garage parking as well as a variety of on-site services, such as a fitness center, staffed health clinic, dry cleaning services, Starbucks and cafeteria.

Wyndham Vacation Ownership Awards Two More Luxury Vehicles in Popular Sweepstakes

ORLANDO, Fla. (April 21, 2014) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE:WYN), continues to drive excitement for the Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes with two new winners. Owners Phillis Scott and Lionel and Norma Theriot attended prize presentations at WVO resorts, showcasing the cars won in the sweepstakes. Ms. Scott, who has been an owner since 2013,  qualified to win the fifth car in the sweepstakes — a 2014 Infiniti JX35 — during an owner update at Wyndham Grand Desert in October 2013; Lionel and Norma Theriot, owners since 1996, qualified for the sixth car — a Cadillac Escalade — during an owner update at Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort in December 2013.

“My favorite part of owning with Wyndham is basically I can go anytime I want to,” said Phillis Scott. “I love the people, I love the resorts; when I come to Wyndham, I’m at home.”

In her short time of vacation ownership, Ms. Scott has learned the many benefits of ownership and has a wish list of resorts she would like to visit. The Theriots, having been owners for more than 17 years, are veterans at using their points and have visited numerous resorts across the country.

“Before we retired, we would joke that work was getting in the way of our vacations,” said Norma Theriot. “We started purchasing more points every time we’d go somewhere,” added Lionel Theriot. “The plan was when we retired, we wanted to have enough points so we could travel all the time, and it’s working out great!”

“I am so pleased we could present both Ms. Scott and the Theriots with these luxury cars as part of the Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes. Every day is a great day to give away a car, but being able to bring these valued owners to our resorts and treat them to the Wyndham experience they’ve come to love is truly gratifying,” said Jeff Myers, WVO’s chief sales & marketing officer. “Both Ms. Scott and the Theriots ideally maximize their ownership by spending time with family and taking advantage of the great locations of our world-class resorts.”

As a part of its Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes, the Company gave away one luxury car every other month throughout 2013. Wyndham recently announced that the sweepstakes was extended through 2014, giving four more winners that chance to win a luxury car worth up to $50,000. Owners and guests are automatically entered in the sweepstakes when they attend a sales presentation or owner update at a participating resort. Previous winners of the sweepstakes were George and Judy Maykowskyj of Colbert, Wash.; Chris and Melissa Todd of Humboldt, Tenn.; Wydea Winters of Charlotte, N.C.; and Hollis Cox of Iberville, La.

Wyndham Worldwide Names Industry Veteran Michael Brown To Lead Vacation Ownership Business

Parsippany, NJ – Wyndham Worldwide (NYSE: WYN) has announced the appointment of Michael D. Brown as president and chief executive officer of Wyndham Vacation Ownership effective immediately. Most recently serving as Chief Operating Officer of Hilton Grand Vacations (NYSE: HGV), Brown brings more than 25 years of experience leading a diverse range of asset management and vacation ownership sales functions.

Brown will report to Wyndham Worldwide Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephen P. Holmes, who has been serving as interim leader of the business since the start of the year. Orlando-based Wyndham Vacation Ownership is the world leader in timeshare development, sales, and management with 219 resorts and over 887,000 owners globally.

Prior to serving as HGV’s chief operating officer, Brown led its domestic sales organization, which nearly doubled its sales revenue under his leadership. Brown joined HGV in 2008 after serving in a series of sales, development, operations, and finance leadership roles across the U.S., Europe and the Caribbean for more than 16 years at Marriott International and Marriott Vacation Club International.

“Mike brings a combination of strategic vision, people-centric focus, and industry savvy that is ideal to successfully lead this powerhouse organization,” said Holmes. “A well-known and highly regarded industry leader, Mike values the long term relationship we have with our owners, knows how to leverage a hotel-based loyalty program, and understands how to best support the vibrant and successful sales and service culture at Wyndham.”

Loyalty Program as a Strategic Priority
Vacation ownership at Wyndham includes membership in the industry’s top-rated loyalty program – Wyndham Rewards – which allows owners to earn points that can be redeemed for everything from stays across the Wyndham portfolio to club maintenance fees. This past year, Wyndham Rewards became the first major loyalty program to include vacation ownership and vacation rental properties, adding more than 20,000 options to its redemption portfolio.

“Mike has proven success in effectively connecting hotel customers and loyalty program members with the vacation ownership experience – a strategic priority here at Wyndham as we continue weaving Wyndham Rewards as the ‘blue thread’ tying our hospitality portfolio together,” continued Holmes.

A Continued Focus on Innovation
Brown joins an industry-leading organization that has been a pioneer in hospitality for more than 50 years – first as one of the original providers of vacation ownership, and as an innovator of products and services that set the pace for the industry. Wyndham Vacation Ownership revolutionized the industry with an entirely points and credits-based offering, which has now become the standard across the industry. In recent years, Wyndham ramped up expansion into more urban markets based on the changing travel patterns of its owners – a pioneering move in the industry that others have followed. Wyndham also introduced its Ovation by Wyndham exit program – another industry first that recognizes long-term owners who have enjoyed their ownership, but whose needs have changed, providing opportunities to gracefully bow out when they feel the time is right.

Shared Values to Drive Results
From the inclusive environment created for its approximately 18,000 global associates, to more than 27 million square feet of rainforest preserved, to the many volunteer and philanthropic campaigns, Wyndham Vacation Ownership has aligned its operations with a responsible approach tailored to the many local communities where it operates.

These efforts are reflected as part of Wyndham Worldwide’s recognition as one of the world’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere; as a global industry leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index; and among the Top 50 Companies for Diversity by Diversity Inc.

At HGV, Brown championed responsible business practices, including serving as the inaugural executive sponsor of the organization’s Diversity and Inclusion Council.

“Wyndham has always been a value-driven organization, focused on delivering great experiences for owners and results for our shareholders by doing business in a responsible way we all can be proud of,” added Holmes. “Our culture continues to be an important driver of our success. Mike shares these values as we continue serving the needs of our growing owner base and make travel more accessible and more memorable than any other hospitality company in the world.”

Wyndham Vacation Ownership Once Again Named Among "Best Places to Work" in Southern Nevada

ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 16, 2015) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE:WYN), was named as the second place winner in the large companies category of the “2015 Best Places to Work in Southern Nevada.” The 2015 list, compiled by The Southern Nevada Human Resources Association, recognizes innovative people, practices and programs. WVO has five timeshare resorts, a corporate office and more than 1,700 associates with positions across consumer finance, sales and marketing, and hospitality operations in Las Vegas.

“It’s an honor to once again be recognized among the best places to work in Southern Nevada,” said Sarah King, executive vice president of human resources for WVO. “We aspire to be an employer of choice in the markets we serve, and we’re committed to providing our associates with a rewarding work environment. In addition, our associates are extremely passionate about giving back to their local communities, and I am very proud of our Las Vegas associates for continuing to make a positive difference in the lives of others each and every year.” 

In addition to offering a robust variety of development programs, associates are encouraged to lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle, supported by the company’s Be Well program. In 2014, the Las Vegas campus added a one-mile walking path, and associates once again participated in the City of Las Vegas Corporate Challenge, which provides a healthy way for local companies and their employees to stay active in the community.

Last year, Las Vegas associates contributed more than $130,000 in monetary and in-kind donations benefiting several charities, including the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation and Cure 4 the Kids, as well as The Painted Turtle summer camp, a part of WVO’s signature charity, SeriousFun Children’s Network.  During the holiday season, the company partnered with the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation to provide new shoes to more than 400 children with financial hardship at a local elementary. Associates also delivered gifts to nearly 1,000 children at the same elementary school.

As the world’s largest vacation ownership company, WVO provides a wide-range of benefits including medical/dental/vision coverage, travel discounts, matching 401k, as well as work-life balance options, and educational assistance, including tuition reimbursement for higher education degree credit courses and certificate programs.

Wyndham Vacation Ownership is comprised of more than 200 vacation ownership resorts in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and the South Pacific, and earlier this year added Wyndham Desert Blue – a new CLUB WYNDHAM® Plus resort in Las Vegas.
