Hector Honorato Casino Host

The path Hector Zertuche Honorato took to his Executive Casino Host role at Angel Of The Winds Casino Resort was quite unique! He began his career in the casino industry about six years ago as a cook with aspirations to become an Executive Chef, but when he found that the kitchen environment wasn’t the right fit and discovered he wanted to be out on the casino floor talking to guests, he shifted his focus to the gaming side. His journey has included positions in Keno, Slots, and Player Development, and even an eight-month stint with the Oregon Lottery.

Hector brings a variety of skills and Xpertise to the Casino Host team. From his enjoyment for building relationships with guests to using his talents as a bilingual to open doors with the Spanish-speaking community, his attributes serve as assets to his passion: meeting new people.

“My passion is definitely meeting new people,” Hector says of building relationships with guests. “I love walking around the casino to welcome guests and provide them with a happy gaming Xperience!”

Phong La Casino Host

Phong La has played with cards all of his life, so it’s natural that he’s made a career out of it! Phong has been a Team Member at Angel Of The Winds for a little over a year, but his career in the gaming industry has spanned 13 years and included work as a Dealer, Pit Manager, and Table Games Supervisor.

Along with using his background to attract clientele to Table Games, Phong hopes to utilize his ability to speak both English and Vietnamese fluently, as well as his knowledge of common phrases in both Cantonese and Mandarin, to connect with guests and provide them a great Xperience that they’ll share with others.

“My passion is Xperience,” Phong says of serving guests. “That’s the most important thing is they have a great Xperience. That, to me, is the ultimate end goal of a successful host.”
