A Strategic Alliance in Hiring Your Next Executive Chef

I had the pleasure of working with David when he was the General Manager of North Shore Country Club.  In addition to experiencing his wonderful culinary skills when he was a Executive Chef at North Shore, I also worked very closely with David while I was on the Board of Governors and in my years as a member of the Executive Committee and ultimately President.  David was extremely supportive to me and the other Board members. He is articulate and always very well prepared.  While David has strong convictions and is prepared to stand firm on issues where he feels the need to do so, he also is open minded and willing to consider alternative ways of getting things done.  He is an excellent individual and understands the benefits of bringing balance to everything he does. His knowledge of the hospitality industry is without equal and I wholeheartedly recommend David to join your recruiting team.

DEAREST FRIENDS,

It's that most wonderful time of year!  And an equally appropriate time to share Sincere Thanks for another year of friendship.  Through your continued support and feedback we successfully launched our bi-monthly newsletter receiving remarkable reviews while growing as the premier chef placement practice to the private club community.  We are hopeful, and there are hints daily, that the coming year will be stronger for business which can only be good news.  Likewise we are looking forward to another good year!

 

The introduction of the "Chefs at Work" articles has been one of many highlight of my year.  Your comments suggest true interest in these features, learning of different practices, styles and career journeys these respected chefs' stories tell.   I'm pleased to announce a line-up of additional interesting articles and topics in the coming year which include Mark Rigano, Director of Culinary, Sunrise Corporation at Toscana Country Club, Indian Wells, CA; Gerald Schmidt, CEC, Director of Culinary, Reynolds Plantation, Greensboro, GA; and Michael Garbin, CEC, AAC, et al, Executive Chef of The Union League Club of Chicago.  A variety of articles and links to other career management, leadership and industry news shall also continue in full length in the January/February 2011 edition, along with my commentary.  However, for today, I leave you this link to anticipated trends for foodies in 2011 (Detroit Free Press, 12/5/2010). Click here.

 

Now to this year's finale and highlight of all issues, "Chefs at Work," interview with longtime friend, ever-respected and always modest Russell Scott, CMC, et al, Executive Chef, Isleworth Country Club, Windermere, FL. We hope you enjoy his perspective on becoming an industry leader and his somewhat unconventional and refreshing approach to professional growth and continuing education...

Wishing you, your family and industry fellows the happiest of Holiday Seasons and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!!
