Congratulations to Art G. on his promotion to Executive Kitchen Manager of Newport Beach, CA!
Art was hired back in October of 2010 and trained in Brea then moved on to Irvine where he quickly became a strong addition to the team there. He had a huge level of buy in from all of the team members there and understood our culture and that people are what matter most. His level of execution and big picture vision for the team, along with his contributions to the training program really made an impact and provided forward momentum for the Irvine team.
He moved onto Newport Beach where he quickly took the lead to drive the team with no EKM present and was able to implement and drive systems there with a high level of execution and success. His ability to create buy-in once again and have a cohesive team driving the same goal proved to have great results and clearly he was the EKM even without the title. We are excited to see where the road takes him as he continues to move forward in his career and grow with the Yard House.
