The Trade Milwaukee Welcomes New Food & Beverage Director
The Trade Milwaukee, a premiere hotel under construction in Deer District, continues to build its staff in preparation for its expected Spring 2023 opening. Rich Lundt, General Manager for The Trade Milwaukee, is excited to welcome Food & Beverage Manager, Alexander Schubert.
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,” said Rich Lundt, General Manager. “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.”
Owned and operated by NCG Hospitality, The Trade Hotel is slated to open in May 2023 and will boast 207 luxury guest rooms and suites, featuring California King beds, heightened ceilings, and state-of-the-art finishes. A destination rooftop restaurant and lounge will offer breathtaking views of the city, while the ground-floor signature restaurant will honor Milwaukee’s rich history and local fare through an innovative yet approachable culinary experience. The Trade Hotel will also feature more than 9,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor gathering space, as well as meeting packages that can accommodate up to 400 guests.
