Sheraton Dallas Hotel Names Zeb Hartline as Executive Chef

USA , Dallas , Texas. January 07, 2019

The Sheraton Dallas Hotel, part of Marriott International, announces that it has appointed Zeb Hartline as Executive Chef.

Hartline joins the Sheraton Dallas with more than 15 years in the food and beverage industry, and proven experience in building teams, increasing profits, and improving quality for high-volume convention centers and resorts.

His addition to the team is instrumental as the downtown convention hotel currently undergoes a multimillion dollar renovation, including the addition of multiple food and beverage outlets and redesign of existing ones.

"Zeb's culinary innovation and expertise will be a significant asset as we revamp our restaurant and banquet offerings," said Ryan Littman, Director of Food and Beverage of Sheraton Dallas Hotel. "Zeb's education, experience and passion for cooking will undoubtedly elevate our culinary experience for our guests and locals alike."

Hartline hails from southwestern Michigan, where he firsthand learned the art of cooking growing up on a 67-acre produce farm. He earned his degree at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy in Orlando, and has earned more than two dozen awards on the professional barbecue circuit.

Most recently, Hartline served for four years as Executive Chef over multiple restaurants and Director of Restaurants at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. Prior to that position, Hartline served in culinary leadership positions at The JW Marriott & Ritz-Carlton Hotel at Grande Lakes Orlando and Orlando World Center Marriott.

Sheraton Dallas Hotel is located at 400 North Olive Street in Dallas, Texas.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
