Family-owned hospitality company, The Kaeding Management Group, is experiencing rapid growth. As evidence of this they recently announced newly appointed managers and the creation of a new home for the museum of aviation, Northwest Airlines History Center.

The new appointments include Tim Blaschke who is now the general manager of Crowne Plaza AiRE in Minneapolis; Jamie Goodchild, who will be the general manager of Hampton Inn and Suites Minneapolis University Area; Janessa Bradley, the new assistant general manager of Hampton Inn and Suites Minneapolis University Area; and Nanci Figueroa, director of sales and marketing at Kaeding Management Group, who has been placed on the board of Global Business Travel Association and will serve as treasurer.

Early next year, The NWA History Center will move to the third floor of the Crowne Plaza AiRE in Bloomington, Minn. The museum will feature a collection of photos, model planes, uniforms and other content that focuses on the airline’s history. There will be assistance and guidance from former employees of the airlines; the museum will be available to both guests and non-guests of the hotel.

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

This fall, chef Jorge Guzman will open a new restaurant, Petite León, in the former Blackbird Cafe space in South Minneapolis. The restaurant will serve dishes with Mexican, Spanish, French, and American influences, that aim to be approachable, creative and delicious.
