Regional recruiting manager at Wyndham Vacation Ownership
Charity: H.O.P.E. Foundation
Heidi Bleil’s job is to find people bursting with potential and give them the tools to succeed at Wyndham Vacation Ownership. From interview to promotion, Heidi encourages her employees at the Branson branch.
“I get to watch them grow, succeed and be fulfilled in their jobs, while I also get to give back to Wyndham by growing their charitable donations locally,” Heidi says. “We were one of the top in our company for fundraising and volunteer hours last year, and that’s something that makes me very proud.”
Last year, Heidi spearheaded volunteering and charitable donations, hosting the Christel House Open to benefit the international Christel House organization. The event raised $36,000 to benefit schools in impoverished areas, like the school she visited in Mexico City in 2012. The trip changed her life and led her to want to give back more to other charities, including the H.O.P.E. (Helping Overcome Pediatric Emergencies) Foundation.
“It’s my second family, the H.O.P.E. Foundation,” she says. “And between the two, I just try to raise as much money as I can. I just have to remember to smile more; I get too serious sometimes.”
