Each year, Visit Indy holds its annual ROSE Awards Gala to honor those in the hospitality and service industry. ROSE stands for Recognition Of Service Excellence, and Markey's very deserving nominee this year was Babs Ross. Babs manages the audiovisual needs for customers at The Marten House Hotel & Conference Center and the Embassy Suites North. She learned of her nomination when a Visit Indy representative surprised her by showing up at our company meeting with roses and made the announcement!
Babs consistently gets compliments about her work and attitude from our customers, She is described as "knowledgeable, caring, enthusiastic and dedicated, with a can-do attitude." We couldn't agree more.
The Gala was March 12th, and Babs and her husband Jeff were picked up in a limousine and taken downtown to the elegant and historic Indiana Roof Ballroom. She was announced, had her photo taken with Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, then could sit and enjoy the evening at the front row Markey's table with her colleagues.
