– Nuno Rodrigues has been named Food & Beverage Director of The Statler, a Curio Collection by Hilton hotel managed by Aimbridge Hospitality, the leading global third-party hotel operator.

 

Rodrigues is a perfect fit for The Statler with over 20 years of international hospitality experience and a focus on hotel food and beverage outlets. His most recent position was at Mayfair Hospitality Street Partners in Alpharetta, Georgia, where he was Vice President of Food and Beverage. Before that, he served as Food & Beverage Director at The Hamilton Alpharetta, another Curio Collection by Hilton hotel.

 

At The Statler, Rodrigues will direct all food and beverage operations to include managing and building concepts and staff training. The main goal is to increase revenue and service quality at The Statler’s four food and beverage outlets, Scout, Overeasy, Bourbon & Banter and Waterproof. Rodrigues describes his leadership style as a team player who values every staff member’s ideas – his favorite thing is seeing staff members grow and develop.

 

“Hospitality has been my passion since I was born. My Italian father was a pizza maker who taught me to cook well and serve well, and my goal at The Statler is to carry on that legacy,” Rodrigues said. “After spending 22 years working in hospitality in the U.S., I’m excited to work for Aimbridge Hospitality and lead the amazing venues at the iconic Statler.”

 

Rodrigues has also served as Director of Outlets at 1 Hotel South Beach in Miami Beach, Florida, where he implemented an outlet revenue strategy resulting in a 20% increase in revenue per available room and a 12% increase in overall hotel profitability. He was also Assistant General Manager at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Atlanta, bringing a truly well-rounded background to the new role.

 

“In Nuno, we’ve found the best person to direct our food and beverage operations, ensuring the highest quality restaurants and bars that will excite both hotel guests and locals from around DFW,” said Brett Krafft, General Manager of The Statler.

 

Rodrigues holds an MBA in financial business and hotel management from Lusíada University in Lisbon, Portugal, and is a certified food and beverage executive (CBFE) with a ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification.

 

In his free time, Rodrigues enjoys spending time with his wife and three grown children, traveling, playing golf and tennis and watching European soccer.
