Rye Brook, NEW YORK, February 1, 2022 - The Doral Arrowwood Conference Resort in Rye Brook, New York is pleased to announce that it has awarded Grill Cook Eugenio Chumpitazi the distinction of being their 1999 "Employee of the Year." In a property-wide contest with 11 of his fellow A-Team Members (Employees of the Month), the resort's managers elected Chumpitazi as Doral Arrowwood's "Employee of the Year." Chumpitazi's victory was announced at Doral Arrowwood's holiday party on December 19, 2021 and entitled him to a $1,000 prize.

An employee of Doral Arrowwood since 1998, Chumpitazi is employed as a grill cook at the resort's Atrium restaurant. Chumpitazi cites his Pfizer clients as his favorite to serve. According to Chumpitazi, "I feel very proud to be Doral Arrowwood's 'Employee of the Year' and I appreciate everyone who voted for me. I really enjoy working with people, especially our guests. They keep me going - that's why I'm here."

A native of Lima, Peru, Chumpitazi moved to the United States in 1987 and now lives in Port Chester with his wife and three children. In his spare time, Chumpitazi enjoys spending time with his family, playing chess and meditating. His favorite dish to cook is Penne `a la Vodka.

Doral Arrowwood's General Manager, Joe Crimmins, remarked, "We are thrilled to honor Eugenio Chumpitazi as our 'Employee of the Year.' His tremendous work ethic and pleasant demeanor serve as a great example to all of our staff and as a valuable contribution to our guests' perception of our property."

Chumpitazi's nomination comes at a time when Doral Arrowwood is undergoing a multi-million dollar expansion that includes the addition of over 120,000 square feet of state-of-the-art conference facilities and 100 new guestrooms (The Lodge at Doral Arrowwood). The expansion is scheduled for completion by June 2000.
