The Maritime Hotel, located in New York City's West Chelsea neighborhood, has named two new industry vets to its executive team: General Manager Matt Moore and Director of Sales and Public Relations Callan Polmer.
As general manager, Moore will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of management and operations for the hotel, including oversight of staff, recruitment and development, training, scheduling, preparation of annual budgets, and guest satisfaction. He most recently worked as director of front office at the Greenwich Hotel in downtown Manhattan where he hired, trained, and managed the opening team. His new position at The Maritime is something of a homecoming, having worked at the hotel for four years prior to his time at the Greenwich. He began as the Front Desk Supervisor, and after one year was promoted to Assistant Front Office Manager, where he managed a team of 12 guest service employees. A resident of New York City for the past 12 years, Moore began his career in the hospitality industry as the F&B Assistant Service Manager on the opening team of the boutique Hudson Hotel in Manhattan.
Polmer comes to The Maritime Hotel with four years of experience in the New York City hospitality industry, where she worked as the Concierge Manager at the Soho and Tribeca Grand Hotels. As Concierge Manager, Polmer led a team in planning and executing personalized itineraries for guests, and handling special requests both in and outside the hotel. Prior to her position at the Soho and Tribeca Grand Hotels, Polmer worked as the event manager for Gabel Entertainment, an events managing company in Manhattan. As event manager, Polmer was responsible for the execution of events and overseeing a team of promoters.
The hotel is located at 363 West 16th Street in New York City. Visit www.themaritimehotel.com for more information.
