Name: Wesley Hepburn

Position: Senior Food & Beverages Operation Manager at The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C.

How he makes guests feel special: “I listen and act on their unexpressed wishes — having been in the industry for a while, you learn patterns of what guests want and appreciate, and what guests need and how to approach different relationships and personalities. I apply my experience and learnings with a personalized touch.”

Favorite way to enjoy the city: “I’m a cyclist. As for road cycling, I enjoy the trails as they are scenic and free from traffic — Rock Creek is great as well as the Chesapeake & Ohio (C&O) Canal trail. As for mountain biking, I keep it local and get on a trail from my front door that leads me to Fort Dupont Park.”
