General Manager

NoMad Hotel New York

As Patrizia ‘Pat’ Zueck gives her debut as a host on Smack, we welcome Michelle Walder, GM at the NoMad Hotel New York to the show. The two former co-workers share their personal experiences on being women in the hospitality industry and discuss how travelling and hotels have been affected by the pandemic. Michelle also talked to us about how working within the Sydell Group and experiencing Covid-19’s sudden rise in the US was a game-changer and how they tried to cope with what it brought. All of this, while reflecting on the early parts of her career – including some free-of-charge career tips for recent graduates currently looking for jobs in hospitality!

Enjoy the show!
