I told you dear readers on Sunday about the sad departure of The Ritz-Carlton Denver general manager Andrew Rogers who left Monday for his first trip to his new gig as GM of the under-construction Ritz in Chengdu, China.
Meanwhile, Rogers’ replacement (and I hope he has big feet, because he has big shoes to fill) Steve Janicek takes over The Ritz Denver GM job after serving as the top dog at The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera.
Janicek’s 25-year hospitality career includes stints with Stouffer Hotels, The Ritz-Carlton Aspen, The Coeur d’Alene Resort, The Lodge at Rancho Mirage and Vail Cascade Resort and Spa.
His biggest challenge as the general manager of one of Denver’s two luxury hotels will be to maintain the AAA Five-Diamond rating that Rogers led his team to earn two years in a row. Good luck!
