Position: General Manager Location: Omaha, NE


Reports to: EVP Operations, position is exempt


Hotels done differently. It’s not just a slogan it is who we are in everything we do. We believe in the power of People, Place and Character; ensuring our properties are a place where individuals are valued and celebrated as a tribute to the neighborhoods and the people of the communities in which we operate; elevating our associates’ pride in who they are, where they live and who we serve.  The Hotel Deco will reopen in early 2021 with its 89 newly renovated suites, guest rooms and exceptional event spaces, welcomes guests to an Art Deco landmark. With nods to the 1930s and high-end amenities and services, the hotel effortlessly blends history and a contemporary boutique hotel experience. The hotel is managed by Aparium who was founded in 2011 by Chicago hospitality executive and entrepreneur Mario Tricoci and luxury hotel veteran Kevin Robinson. The duo saw a clear need for a company that could bring c-suite service and accommodations to underserved, yet distinct and important cities, while maintaining and celebrating the unadulterated character of each. Driven by the belief that all hospitality experiences should be fueled by the poetics of their surroundings, Aparium was born with an intense focus on unearthing the amazing moments unique to every city.


When Aparium speaks of "cultural fit" for a position, it is largely due to the psychographic or lifestyle of an individual. This need is unique to Aparium, as the personal interests and participation in an individual's community is critical to driving the company's translocal hospitality belief and operating principle. The key lifestyle components we expect of a General Manager for the hotel include the person's activities and interests.  The traits for the General Manager that propel the company's culture of translocal hospitality, intuitive service and collaborative spirit are the need to be adventurous - comfortable in seeking out new experiences, exploring the unknown and are unlikely to have a routine. Discovers the hidden stories and insights of their communities, and continually explores their neighborhood and city to identify what's new. Understands that the FOMO (fear of missing out) can be a good thing. They are also gregarious by nature demonstrating an extroverted personality; fueled by meeting new people, forming new partnerships and new experiences. They seek and initiate new relationships within the hotel and community and take a general interest in the personal stories of the individuals they meet and work with.  Creating harmonious relationships by seeing the bumps in the road ahead of time and taking precautions to steer around and resolve potential conflict with all stakeholders; partners within the community to establish mutually beneficial relationships; and can be chameleon and shape their style and presence to fit any situation and audience. Finally, they are intelligent – exhibiting emotional maturity and intellectual health to adapt to a variety of situations that may occur with the demands within the lifestyle of high ­net worth individuals. They remain unflappable in contentious situations and knowledgeable in how to deescalate emotional responses. THE ROLE
