Your Mission:
As Tenant Experience Director you are the ultimate Head of Hospitality for the Esplanade’s elevated workplace campus that is so much more than just an office. Your job is to create incredible experiences and programs for the tenants through on-site hospitality services. You’ll lead a team of four to develop collaborative partnerships, launch engaging programs, enhance tenant experience, and drive revenue, all while fulfilling your dream job.
The Legacy You’ll Leave:
As a result of your time in this role, you brought daily joy to 3,000 human beings who work at the Esplanade. You created such deep and meaningful relationships with the building’s management team, their tenants, and external partners that they never wanted lulafit to leave. Your legacy brought wellness and peak performance to the masses and turned their office building into somewhere they were excited to show up every day. Lastly, you led lulafit to become a lasting fixture in the Esplanade community.

What You’re Responsible For

  • Event Planning and Execution: Develop, plan, execute, and evaluate a variety of events for tenants, including space activations, surprise and delight moments, happy hours, and educational sessions.
  • Stakeholder and Tenant Relationships: Cultivate meaningful relationships with tenants and stakeholders, providing personalized solutions and white-glove hospitality experiences.
  • Amenity and Operational Management: Oversee the operational strategy and management of amenity spaces like fitness centers and conference rooms, including revenue generation and financial reporting.
  • Marketing and Communication: Implement and oversee marketing strategies and communications, including newsletters, email campaigns, digital marketing, and printed materials to engage tenants.
  • Tenant Satisfaction and Community Integration: Plan hospitality-centered programs to enhance tenant experiences and integrate the buildings into the surrounding community, ensuring high tenant satisfaction and engagement.
  • Partnership Development: Establish and manage relationships with local vendors, retail tenants, on-site food and beverage operators, and external partners to enhance event offerings and tenant experiences.
  • Team and Operational Support: Onboard, manage, train, and develop on-site lulafit staff, and support the lulafit Operations Team with projects to increase client engagement and member experience.

Who You Are: Baseline Requirements

  • Must have: You have 5+ years of hospitality experience. You may have worked in a hotel, in community management, or event planning and you have experience directly managing F+B partnerships or catering. You are proficient with both the Google suite (what lulafit uses) and Microsoft Office (what our clients use). Don’t worry, you don’t need to be great at PowerPoint nor super savvy with Excel.
  • Even better if your experience has also touched the real estate sector. Examples of this include: 1) You’ve been a Community Experience Director with Industrious, Convene or another co-working space; 2) a Marketing and Events Director who has worked for commercial real estate clients; 3) a Wellness or Spa Director at a luxury residential building.
  • Experience directly managing F+B partnerships and catering is extremely helpful.

Who You Are: Key Competencies

  • Obsessively customer-centric. In previous roles, you have exceeded what customers expected of you, you have an innate hospitality mindset and are happiest when you are serving others.
  • An exceptional leader. You have at least 5 years of people management experience and have managed teams of up to 4 direct reports before. Your previous managers would tell us they trusted you deeply because you set clear expectations for your team, managed their performance fairly while holding them accountable, and provided meaningful coaching and mentoring for them.
  • A proven revenue generator. You have experience sourcing, vetting, and managing vendor relationships. You have also managed conference rentals, upsold catering with an on-site food & beverage operator, monetized fitness center memberships, and brought in respected personal trainers.
  • A confident P&L manager. You can read a P&L and are comfortable telling the story of expenses and revenue, budget vs. actuals and know how to forecast. You don’t need to build a P&L from scratch nor understand things like the nuances of depreciation.
  • A strategic thinker who elevates company performance: You have strategically moved the needle for past organizations by seeing the big picture, understanding the interconnectedness of decisions and activities, and using that insight to drive revenue and exceed your goals.
  • A hyper-organized ball juggler. You stay extremely organized and are constantly reprioritizing your own work because it’s what makes you most effective. Everyone refers to you as a stellar multi-tasker.
