Christian Ojeda Named Executive Chef of Montage Deer Valley in Park City, Utah

USA, Park City, Utah. August 31, 2020

Montage Deer Valley has announced the promotion of Christian Ojeda to executive chef. In his new role, Ojeda oversees the wide range of culinary experiences available at the Park City, Utah resort including signature restaurant APEX as well as Burgers & Bourbon, Daly's Pub & Rec, The Après Lounge, and more.

"We're pleased to recognize chef Christian's hard work with a well-earned promotion," said Joseph Mattioli, general manager of Montage Deer Valley. "Culinary programming is an integral component to the guest experience at Montage Deer Valley, and we look forward to chef Christian leading the charge with his sense of creativity, leadership and innovation."

Ojeda is a longtime veteran of food and beverage operations at Montage Deer Valley, having initially joined the resort as chef de cuisine at APEX in 2014 and three years later as executive sous chef. Ojeda brought an impressive culinary background with him, counting experience at highly acclaimed hotels and restaurants including at Calistoga Ranch in California and Encantado in Santa Fe, New Mexico, both members of the Auberge Resorts Collection. He also worked as executive sous chef at award-winning Geronimo in Santa Fe, and most recently prior to joining Montage Deer Valley, as executive chef at The Sky Lodge in Park City.

Ojeda earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in culinary management from the Art Institute of Colorado and is bilingual in English and Spanish. He has long drawn inspiration from the beauty of the Wasatch Mountains surrounding Montage Deer Valley.

"Park City has always felt like home to me, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue growing roots within the Montage family," said Ojeda. "They say a chef is only as good as the talent he works with, and the team here at Montage Deer Valley is second to none."

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
