Fund in Memory of Tom Wingham



Tom Wingham, the Director of Global Public Relations for DoubleTree, has passed away. He was a much-admired colleague, a caretaker for his parents, and a guardian for his niece Veronica. His love for his family and friends, and passion for travel and his job, were ever-present and will be truly missed. In memory of Tom, donations will be sent to the American Heart Association and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Hilton Worldwide community is saddened to report that Tom Wingham has passed away. Tom just celebrated his 25-year anniversary with Hilton Worldwide. While most knew Tom as the Director of Global Public Relations for DoubleTree, many also knew him as a caretaker for his parents and a guardian for his niece Veronica, whom he loved dearly.

How will this project solve this problem?

Donations to this fund will go directly to the American Heart Association and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in Tom's honor.

Potential Long Term Impact

Tom was a true professional and delightful to be around. His passion, positive energy, and warmheartedness will forever resonate within Hilton Worldwide.
