If a newborn slept in a different bed every night for 100 years, he might experience all of the hotel beds and guest rooms Peter Grosseibl has delivered, realized. Peter was there in 1990 when the Walt Disney Company identified a new monetization: Resorts to complement its theme parks in Florida and California. He was on the team that developed the Disney playbook to build resorts fast, build them smart and build them on a budget. The processes covered everything from design through construction, accessorizing through furnishing; the larger developments having as many as 6,000 rooms. Overall, the number of beds he was involved with in various capacities measures in the tens of thousands. It would take a newborn a century to spend one night in each of them. Time enough to enjoy all of the accompanying restaurants, swimming pools and spas.
Of course new properties eventually require refreshing, so Peter evolved. He managed staff responsible for room renovation procurements: Everything from custom fabrics to flooring, furniture, lighting and electronics. In short, anything found in a guest room, suite, villa or public space. Just like new construction, renovation projects require detailed processes for planning, budgeting and making sure vendors and contractors deliver what they promise. These decades of experience are the foundation of Peter’s own company specializing in hospitality consulting, procurement services and project management.
Bonus background: Like many people in the hospitality industry, Peter started in the kitchen. He is a trained pastry chef, a Johnson and Wales University graduate who joined the Air Force after college and eventually managed the Officers’ Club at McConnell Air Force Base. His first job at Disney was Assistant Restaurant Manager. Those are the roots of his passion for providing exceptional guest experiences.
Jeffery A McCabe, MBA, RN (above left)
A bean counter with a heart? Is that even possible on Planet Earth? Well, snap on that seatbelt, there are some sharp curves on this career journey.
First came Jeff McCabe’s BA in philosophy from Eckerd College, the prerequisite for a Master’s in Theology, before Jeff decided the priesthood wasn’t for him. A job in a local hospital’s business office followed graduation, where Jeff was asked to join a task force. The hospital’s parent company wanted to open an Insurance Division. The idea proved viable, and Jeff helped this national health care chain create an entirely new line of business.
Over the course of the next couple of decades Jeff picked up an MBA from Everest University as he rose through the ranks of the financial and insurance industry, working in data management, claims, customer service and provider relations. His last insurance position was a Director of Network Development for a national health insurance company.
Lots of bean counting ... not enough heart, so Jeff quit that job and enrolled in nursing school. He has since worked as a critical care, a cardiac care and a surgical care nurse. He remains engaged in hands-on health care.
Jeff also remains engaged hands-on with numbers and spreadsheets, overseeing PKG Services’ abilities to monitor monies expended and goods received in any hospitality construction or renovation project. He is also a consumer of Peter’s tasty pastries. Oh, and if budget reviews give you heart palpitations, Jeff can help with that too.
