Catering Sales Director, has been a part of the Hotels Unlimited team since early 2017, yet at first glance you would think she’s been with this venue for years! She started in room sales and quickly worked her way up to catering, where she truly belongs. She comes from an extensive background of event logistics and catering, and has loved working event planning for years. Her favorite part about being on the catering team is that it allows her to meet so many unique couples. When they walk in her office, whether they are excited or stressed, they always leave thrilled about the details of their special day. Reena makes sure there is no stress with their big day and that all of the details are worked out for them. She especially loves telling couples about Sterling’s dessert stations: “Their faces light up in awe when they hear the endless options for sweet treats… far more extensive than just a Viennese dessert table!”
Catering Sales Coordinator, just recently joined the Sterling Ballroom team after working at our sister property, Windsor Ballroom. She comes from a retail background, so working face to face with clients is something she has a huge passion for. Event planning started for Susan in her high school days, and her love for it has carried on ever since! Her favorite part about her job is meeting every unique personality that walks through her door. She says, “helping to make the small dreams in people’s lives come true, now those are the victories that make this job special.” As a Disney lover at heart, Susan thinks no dream is too small, and she will work with brides and grooms to make sure that everything on their special day runs smoothly and just how they envisioned.

Executive Chef at the Sterling Ballroom, Frank has been cooking in various restaurants, country clubs, and hotels for over 20 years. He joined our team in early 2018. Executing a small 20 person buffet or a full service 200 person wedding are both second nature to Frank, and he loves being in full control of the operations and making a difference. His favorite part of being executive chef is not just cooking for a party, but taking pride in the food and receiving positive feedback from the guests enjoying it. His motto is, “do it right, do it once,” and whenever someone stops him in the restaurant or ballroom and asks how he makes something he responds, “with love.” Over the years he has learned to become adaptive and embrace change because, he says, “If we aren’t moving forward we are falling behind while everyone else keeps up with new trends in food.”
