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.

Revenue Management: Maximizing Profit

Hotel Revenue Management continues to evolve at a blistering pace. Driven by technological innovation and new distribution channels, there are some dynamic opportunities for expansion in this fast-growing field. The technology is primarily designed to help revenue managers further refine their operations and pricing models to maximize hotel profit. For example, hotels can't be all things to all people, so a key strategy is to precisely identify their target audience. By employing geo-targeting techniques and analyzing behavior such as previous bookings, on-property purchases and online shopping practices, there is an increased capability to define guest demographics. By segmenting customers in more specific ways, hotels are able to create more personalized experiences which, in turn, allow managers to optimize their room rates. It is also an effective way to fulfill the unique needs and preferences of the individual. Another methodology is to consistently monitor the competition's pricing strategies. There are software tools that analyze a competitor's current rates, and then allow a hotel to make its own pricing adjustments. It is also a useful means to conduct forecasting models. Other technologies that are being integrated into a revenue manager's toolkit include Artificial Intelligence in the form of automated algorithms, and Voice Recognition (VR) for data inquiries, rate changes, and booking behavior. Predictive and analytic software programs are also being leveraged to provide more forward-looking data, instead of the usual reliance on historical performance. These metrics allow managers to be more proactive - rather than reactive - with their revenue strategy. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
