Alexander Schubert joins The Trade team as the highly-anticipated hotel prepares to open
A Wisconsin native, Schubert has found incredible success in the local food and beverage industry. Breaking into the industry as an Executive Chef for Granite City Food & Brewery and later the Marriott Schaumburg, he joins The Trade team after a five-year tenure as Market Director of Food & Beverage for another hotel property management company.
Of his new position, Schubert said, “I am incredibly excited to begin my journey here at The Trade. The promise of lending all focus to one property, especially one so unique, is very exciting to me. My goal here is to develop an experience unlike any other in Milwaukee and I am deeply thankful for the opportunity to create that experience.”
The search for a new Food & Beverage director was no easy feat for The Trade team. With meticulous attention being paid to not only the guest experience of The Trade, but also cohesion and contribution to Milwaukee’s local food scene, finding the right candidate was imperative.
“We are very excited to have Alexander join The Trade team. The vision for The Trade Hotel has always been excellence, to the search for a Food & Beverage Director had to be highly specific. Alexander’s resume alone was enough to garner our attention, especially with such broad hotel experience, but in conversation with him it’s clear that he shares our vision of excellence as well.” Said Rich Lundt, General Manager.
