Aside from their passion for parties and years of hospitality experience, the most important key to these ladies’ success seems to be their appreciation for one another. These seven standout women ensure that every detail falls into place: From confetti and queue times to cocktails and corporate buyouts—A feat that requires a lot of seamless communication and mutual respect. “Everyone is a partner,” says Rivka Noble, vice president of catering and corporate sales.We’re all family. At Drai’s, operations managers Michele Bowman and Missy Posterli spent three-month rotations in different departments, learning the needs and expectations of their colleagues so that they can better support them in their permanent positions. Several of these executives started their careers as entry-level assistants, cocktail waitresses or bartenders, learning as many roles as they could along the way. Suzanne Smith, the Beach Club general manager wants to instill the same aspirational ethos upon her staff. “The team supports you because you help them grow,” she says. Smith, who has worked 15 years in hospitality, also credits the team’s success to the balance of personalities: Tiffany Bosman brings experience from nightclubs, dayclubs and festivals to her director of marketing position; Robbie Hardy flexes her creativity, overseeing hospitality and production; and Tanya Myers keeps it all running as the executive assistant to Drai’s managing partner Brian Affronti. His is a team that works and plays well together.
