I am nominating Mekidalawit Teka as Leader of the Month for a variety of reasons, most notably for her commitment to the entire Houston First Portfolio. In April, “MT” managed the Avenida North Garage’s return parking for the Houston Astros home games, the adjoining Marriott Marquis Hotel returning to high occupancy levels, and George R Brown Convention Center events. Her locations have maintained month over month revenue growth throughout the last year, and she has managed this growth deftly. In addition to all of this, she has continued the bookkeeping duties for the entire Houston First Portfolio (8 locations) since the pandemic. MT’s unwavering dedication to her position and the greater project makes it an easy choice as a nominee for leader of the month.
