Executive Chef Search Update

We are pleased to announce that Big Canoe has been presented with seven exceptional Executive Chef candidates by top culinary recruiting team DZK. These chefs all have extensive industry experience from top restaurants, hotels, resorts and club properties. After an extensive review of our gorgeous property and F&B operations, all of them are “chomping at the bit” to be selected to lead our culinary team at Big Canoe.

General Manager Scott Auer and Director of Amenities Carrie Scott have conducted one-on-one interviews with these exceptional candidates and selected four to proceed to the second round of interviews. The review process was then expanded to include Property Owners with expertise in operations including Jim Conneely, Vice President of Student Affairs at the University of North Georgia.

Three of the executive chef candidates have advanced to our final selection process and will join us for in-person interviews in the next few weeks. Among them – and already leading our kitchen operations as a guest chef in the Clubhouse – is Michael Gogolin, who has graciously agreed to assist us during the selection process.

We will provide hiring updates as they become available.
