The Statler in downtown Dallas named Evan Danziger general manager and Jennifer Wasserman as director of sales and marketing. The boutique luxury hotel is currently undergoing a $225 million renovation and is anticipated to open in spring 2017.

Danziger joins The Statler with more than 13 years of experience in hotel management, including a variety of top-level management positions throughout the United States. Additionally, he owned and operated a recruitment agency called Open Door Hospitality for five years where he recruited for high-profile companies within the hospitality industry.

Wasserman brings more than 20 years of hotel sales and marketing experience to The Statler, most recently serving as opening director of sales and marketing at The Highland Dallas. Wasserman also currently serves as the director of leadership for the D/FW chapter of Meeting Professionals International.

“We are honored to welcome two remarkable hospitality executives to The Statler,” says Dave Johnson, president and CEO, Aimbridge Hospitality. “Both Evan and Jennifer are proven experts in the hospitality industry and with their combined wealth of experience, are the perfect fit for a redevelopment of such magnitude as The Statler.”

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
