Andrea Maturo, Catering Sales Director, has been part of the team since April 2012. Andrea loves working at a venue with newly renovated event spaces that are full of character and charisma. And she loves the opportunity to connect with her brides and grooms and event planners at a personal level, and meeting so many exciting people at an exciting time in their lives. “Spending time with each new couple doesn’t feel like a business transaction. I love getting to know them as friends.” She takes pride in making sure that clients don’t feel rushed, in encouraging them to ask a million questions, and sharing the moment when they see the ballroom for the first time on their big day. Her advice? “Take it a day at a time. Ask for advice – that’s what we’re here for!” Andrea is devoted to her family, to her dog, and to embarking on new culinary adventures. She even had her own wedding at a Hotels Unlimited wedding venue and it was everything she’s dreamed of!

Erik Schacht, Banquet Manager, has been in the hospitality industry for over 14 years.

Lucky for us, Erik discovered Hotels Unlimited through a local career fair and has been a part of the team since November 2018. His kindness, caring personality, and meticulous attention to detail are why our clients adore him. “When a couple tells me I made their dreams come true, it makes everything worth it.”

Pamela Burns, Room Blocks and Room Sales Coordinator, has been with Hotels Unlimited since 2017. She studied hotel and restaurant management and started her career in 1990 before taking some time off to raise her children. Why hospitality? Pam is outgoing, loves to build relationships, and takes guest satisfaction seriously. She’s especially proud to help provide a great experience to visitors of our Jersey Shore hotel since she’s lived at the Jersey Shore most of her life and it’s her favorite place. Pam’s advice for wedding and event planners? “Event planning can always be frustrating, so be sure to take some time to relax. We’re here to make the process as stress-free as possible!”
