The historic Nassau Inn would like to welcome our newest members of the Food and Beverage Management Team, Greg Newman and Carter Smith.
Greg got his start in the field of hospitality while in college. While attending East Stroudsburg University, he was highly involved with the Campus Activities Board, planning numerous events for the students on campus. His interests lead him into a career in event management, where he worked as a stadium operations manager, a park ranger, an event coordinator, and dining services manager. Greg’s favorite part of hospitality is seeing the favorable expressions on his clients’ faces when an event goes well. Recently, Greg had the opportunity to be on the receiving end of his own line of work, when he married his fiancé of 5 years! The wedding was exactly what they were looking for. Greg is a beer fanatic; he would say he is an expert. Greg has recently posted, Beers with Newman, featured here on our blog.
Carter first got introduced into the Hospitality field several years ago, starting out at the Front Desk. It was at that moment that he realized that he had a passion for customer service and pleasing guests. With a background in fine dining, banquet and bartending it was inevitable for him to gravitate toward the Food and Beverage department. After a few months of working at the Front Desk, he was promoted to Restaurant Manager, during which time he ran a very successful Sports Bar. He was then promoted to Food and Beverage Manager and managed banquets, the restaurant, and the bar. He realized that he had chosen the right career path. Some of his favorite things to do are to go to NYC for a matinee and dinner. He loves experiencing the foods from different cultures.
It is my pleasure to be working with such unique and passionate individuals. May they come to love working at the Nassau Inn as much as I have.
