Many thanks to FIU Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management for giving me the opportunity to interview Chipotle’s top female executive Gretchen Selfridge, Restaurant Support Officer, who went from General Manager to managing half of Chipotle’s restaurants throughout the country. Gretchen spoke to over 100 students and industry partners about her career and the tremendous success and growth of Chipotle across the country. She inspired the students with her story as well as the great opportunities to become a manager through their training program.
Congratulations to our Chair of the Board, Peggy Benua, for winning The Coral Gables Chamber Of Commerce 2015 AXA Advisors Businesswomen of the Year Outstanding Hospitality Leader of the Year Award.
