Discovering a passion at a young age
From his very first experience as a kid, Zeb fell in love with the romance of hotels and knew this was the career for him. That’s why he decided to study hotel and restaurant management in college.
Working at one of the most iconic hotels in the world
Zeb’s first role in hospitality was with the Rooms division at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. It was his dream role out of college and set him on his path to success.
Sharing the industry with everyone
Zeb says that everyone knows he works in hotels because he is always sharing his love of the industry. “They know what city I’m in or what brand I’m working for,” he says. “And I’ve got great stories to bring to the dinner table.“
“If you love to serve, there is no better industry in the world. To serve our guests, to serve your coworkers, we are in the business of service. If you are passionate about being hospitable, about making folks feel comfortable, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”
