COMPANY EMPLOYEES RECOGNIZED FOR EXEMPLARY PERFORMANCE Daniel Frazee and Will Dixon were nominated for the 2007 ARDA (American Resort Development Association) Award finalist. The nomination resulted from the performance of the Frazee, Inc. team led by Daniel and Will on the “extreme makeover” of 840 timeshare units in Orange Lake Resorts and was submitted by the President of Orange Lake. Daniel Frazee was presented with the 2007 finalist award at the 2007 Awards Gala, held at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. Orange Lake operates 2,300 timeshare units and has elevated standards in excellence with each new development. Thus, it was natural to assume that management was anxious to incorporate the “new feel” in older properties. Daniel Frazee “worked with the management company to develop a model unit that incorporated all the different and complex design details. Through that process, the resort experimented with moving, adding and modifying walls; upgrading finishes; and many other enhancements to the model unit. After completing the model unit, the resort invited owners to view the before and after product and received overwhelmingly positive comments about the final product.” Join us in congratulating Daniel for his outstanding performance and being presented the Finalist Award by ARDA and Will for being a nominee.
