A career with Relais & Châteaux

As part of my graduation year studying Hospitality Management, I did my internship at the Reception, where I then got hired. A year later I became Front Desk Assistant Manager, before my attention to details led me to the Sales department. Since 2013, I am the Coordinator of Groups & Events.
– Success stories, Julia Brouillard
I arrived as a server at Le Hatley Restaurant in 2004. Promoted the year after Chef-de-Rang, I then went to study sommellerie and returned in 2007 as Assistant Sommelier. Three years later, driven by my passion, I became Assistant Maître-d’/Sommelier and since 2012, Maître-d’/Sommelier.
– Success stories, Patrick Grieve
I started at the Reception in 2012 and thanks to my computer skills, I was able to assist in some marketing tasks. Today and since the end of 2013, I am in charge of Marketing and Revenue. Working at Manoir Hovey has really allowed me to expand and diversify my knowledge!
– Success stories, Florian Gavinaitis
When I started at Le Hatley Restaurant in 2011, I would never have imagined that a few years later, I would go to California with Chef Francis Wolf to participate in a culinary event and work alongside legends like Michel Bras and Olivier Roellinger! In addition, I acquired new knowledge and discovered foraging, a new passion!
– Success stories, Pier-Olivier Denicourt
After an experience in service, Luc discovers his passion for cooking. He began his studies in Sherbrooke and quickly joined the team at Le Hatley Restaurant where he stayed and perfected his techniques for 2 years. He then joined Alain Labrie’s kitchen as a sous-chef before opening the Antidote Foodlab, which has since become one of Sherbrooke’s best restaurants!
