Enzian Staff Change Announcement
Orlando, FL (October 4, 2012) – Enzian is proud to announce the promotion of two exceptionally talented senior staff members. Christy West, Food & Beverage Director, and Hollie Mahadeo, General Manager, are now responsible for all of Enzian’s general operations. Their combined qualifications and abilities cover the diverse needs Enzian has as a one-of-a-kind organization. In addition, Elizabeth Tiedtke has been named Executive Vice President to assume a roll encompassing strategic planning including setting and attaining Enzian’s long term goals. These staff changes ensure that Enzian will continue to thrive and grow for years to come.
Christy West began her career in the food service industry at the age of fifteen. She was promoted to General Manager of a Friendly’s family restaurant at age eighteen, making her the youngest person in their history to be the head of a thriving restaurant. She combines the ability to analyze profitability margins, a passion for customer service, and exceptional leadership skills with confidence and gusto. Her ten-plus years of managing food service concepts of all varieties has afforded her the advantage necessary to propel the Enzian to a new level of guest service.
Hollie Mahadeo joined the Enzian team in 2011 with a diverse background in fine arts, hospitality, administration, and marketing. After several years of attending Enzian and Florida Film Festival she was thrilled to take her Enzian “campaign” further than just telling everyone she met about it. She is a true believer in the mission statement and greatly appreciates the opportunity to entertain, inspire, educate, and connect the community through film. Her versatile skill set makes her uniquely qualified to be Enzian’s General Manager.
Elizabeth Tiedtke graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rollins College with a degree in Economics. She then earned a Grande Diplome in Culinary Arts from the French Culinary Institute in New York City and afterwards returned to Winter Park and Enzian. Under her leadership, Enzian has been able to seed substantial operating reserves for two consecutive years. The efficient budget established during her career at Enzian will provide stability and sustainability for Enzian for years to come.
Enzian is Central Florida’s only full-time, not-for-profit cinema for first-run independent and international films, classic revivals, documentary features, and select family entertainment. Enzian, a member-supported organization serving the community for 27 years, is home to Eden Bar and the internationally recognized Florida Film Festival.
