NAPW honors Vicki L. Barge, general manager and director of hospitality and guest services at the Hotel Paisano, as a 2013/2014 Professional Woman of the Year for leadership in management with this prestigious distinction. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 400 Local Chapters.
“I have been working at the Hotel Paisano since 2002,” says Ms. Barge, who is now Hotel Paisano’s general manager and director of hospitality and guest services.
The Hotel Paisano is an architectural gem built by Henry C. Trost, a renowned Texas architect and admirer of Frank Lloyd Wright. The hotel, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, may be best known as the location headquarters for the 1950 blockbuster film “Giant” starring Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor. The Greaswood Gallery located next door is an additional attraction offered by the hotel, exhibiting works by various local artists who have ties to the Big Bend area of West Texas.
Ms. Barge does more than simply oversee the daily operations of this renowned hotel. She is also admired for her business ethics and attitudes, which inspires an atmosphere of cooperation and trust. In an industry where expectations are high, Ms. Barge has managed to supply her customers with a unique combination of personal consideration and prompt, efficient and courteous service. With deep roots in the civic and economic life of her community, she takes great pride in maintaining Hotel Paisano’s reputation for being “one of the grandest hotels between El Paso and San Antonio.”
