Please accept this letter and the enclosed resume, in confidence, as my expressed interest in securing a position with your company in a capacity that will most effectively utilize my leadership skills, ability to conceptualize, implement, and direct strategic marketing plans to develop business; and extensive, successful experience in total hospitality management. I am seeking a role in an environment that acknowledges personal initiative and independent decision-making, encourages team work, and demands both flexibility and professionalism.
As my resume reflects, I have built a solid foundation in the various aspects of elevating, expanding, and developing restaurant, hotel, resort, and entertainment businesses, not only through my current role as the Owner/Manager and Talent Buyer for a popular bar & eatery, but also through my successful endeavors in total business management for a restaurant/concert facility, a hotel, and a resort. As the owner and manager of one of Cleveland's popular downtown restaurants/concert venues, I was able to fully utilize my expertise in identifying, developing, and managing opportunities previously-overlooked by others while demonstrating my commitment to exceed client/patron expectations. My years of experience encompass responsibilities in all aspects of restaurant management; special event planning; developing new business markets while earning and maintaining the loyalty of established customers; recruiting, training, coaching, and mentoring high-caliber personnel; marketing; sales; total business management; P&L accountability; goal setting; and identification and resolution of problems.
I am a disciplined, creative, highly-motivated leader seeking another rewarding position where I can continue to utilize my experience, skills, talent, and interest were I can contribute to the success of an established organization. I am confident my diverse skills, proven experience as a creative marketing and promotions guru, and desire to continue utilizing my knowledge of the vast hospitality industry talent would be an asset to your team. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you, in person, to discuss my particular qualifications and goals.
Thank you for your attention, consideration, and forthcoming reply.
