Wilton, N.H.-based Roedel Companies appointed Jason Jette to fill the newly created position of company executive chef for RGH Hospitality, the company’s growing hotel-management subsidiary.
Jette is responsible for revenue generation and operating expenses, menu development and maintaining a consistent focus on culture, guest satisfaction and product quality at Roedel Companies’ five properties that have a food-and-beverage operation.
Jette has an established ability to lead a food operations team for Roedel Companies, serving as director of food and beverage for RGH Hospitality since 2014. He was the executive chef and beverage manager of Hilton Garden Inn Manchester (N.H.), a Roedel Companies property, before that.
“As RGH Hospitality continues to grow along with the Roedel Companies portfolio, we felt there was a definite need for a company executive chef,” said Glenn A. Hardman, president of RGH Hospitality. “Jason’s demonstrated ability to lead teams and his thorough knowledge of the food service industry made him an obvious choice.”
Jette was recognized by Hotel Management as one of its Thirty Under 30 Top Rising Stars in 2015. The annual award acknowledges emerging leaders in the hospitality industry who have completed a significant project for their organization.
