I am a professional in the travel and hotel industry with more than two decades of experience spanning several countries, including the UK, Europe, Indonesia and my homeland, Australia. Prior to joining Red Carnation in 2008, I worked for Contiki, another Travel Corporation brand, for 10 years, where I also managed resort properties. I am thrilled to have joined The Chesterfield Palm Beach and to be leading the fantastic team here. Our intimate hotel is known for its fine service, and I look forward to welcoming guests and ensuring that every request is fulfilled with warmth and care.

I’m a native Floridian with 25 years of experience in the Food and Beverage industry. My experience ranges from silver service for a yacht company in New York City to a fine dining restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. I studied English at Florida Atlantic University, working as a Bartender part-time. When I graduated, I realized my passion was in the Hospitality industry. I began my career at The Chesterfield Palm Beach as a Bartender in 2014. After a year, I received the ‘Bartender of the Year’ award and since then, I have worked as a sever, a PM Restaurant Manager, as well as an Executive Assistant to the General Manager.

I started my career in New Jersey as a Guest Service Agent in 2001 in a hotel near New York City.

I advanced in my career to Revenue Analyst, then Reservations Manager and subsequently to Revenue Manager at another Hilton property. I am very excited to have joined The Chesterfield Palm Beach Team and I look forward to making our guests feel like they are home away from home while providing them with a superb service.

  • Executive Chef
  • gcoughlin@rchmail.com

While growing up in Florida, I worked in a variety of fine restaurants and gained diverse culinary knowledge. Early on I realized that cooking and preparing good food for others was not a job, but a passion. This instinctive desire eventually led me to attend culinary school where I was able to fine-tune my innate skills. After graduating with honors from Florida Culinary Institute in 2000, I began working as Sous Chef at some of Palm Beach’s most highly acclaimed restaurants. Since 2004, I have been Sous Chef at The Chesterfield Palm Beach and was promoted to Executive Chef in August 2007.

  • Front Office Manager
  • jfairchild@rchmail.com

I have wanted to pursue a career in hospitality since I started waiting tables when I was 15 years old at an assisted living home. I am truly passionate about serving guests, it is a privilege to do so each day. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management from Florida International University in 2016, which has enabled me to perfect my craft. It is my top priority to ensure each guest at the Chesterfield is looked after and always feel like a 'V.I.P'.
