Anefe Hachac

 Anefe Hachac is a strong supporter of women and shows this support daily in her dealings with her staff and through her community involvement. Ms. Hachac is the General Manager of the Franklin Suite Hotel and is the only female to hold this position. She earned her degree in Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Adamson University. Anefe or Annie, as she is called, encourages and empowers her female subordinates to learn and achieve through her leadership. She views each and every employee as being vital to the success of the hotel’s operation. Through her leadership, the hotel has had its staff nominated for Star Awards for service and the Franklin Suite Hotel has been named as one of the recipients of the Community in Bloom Award.
Despite her hectic work schedule, Ms. Hachac, is an avid volunteer within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. She has volunteered for the homelessness initiative by speaking with homeless indigenous people and doing surveys to gather information. She is also a strong supporter of the local Food Bank and helps with fundraising efforts. She is an active member and volunteer for the Catholic Women’s league, providing hospitality services to St. John’s and St. Pau’s Churches. She is described by her friends as being ‘full of life’. She has a sincere interest in the well- being of others and works to bring positive change to her community.
Education is very important to Ms. Hachac and she never misses the opportunity to give advice to young girls on the importance and value of education and how far reaching it is going to be in their life’s journey. She encourages girls not to allow themselves to be stereotyped in terms of gender and ability. She is a role model to others by encouraging them to pursue their dreams and goals. She is a friend to many and a deserving recipient for recognition as a Woman of Inspiration.

Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta and Syncrude will honour Aanefe (Annie) Hachac and 11 other nominees, at the Women of Inspiration Celebration which will take place in June, 2017
