Abhishek Sonkar is the general manager of the Amarillo Club, but he didn’t take the normal path. Abi was born in India in the small town Mussoorie. He went to a Hotel School on Kolkatam India and then to Edinburgh in Scotland to graduate at Edinburgh Napier University with a BA in Hospitality Management.
Abi always wanted to be a chef but couldn’t just get a start. So he took a banquet server’s job as a student in the UK. He quickly got promoted to banquet supervisor and Banquet Manager in the same company.
Abi was part of the team hosting The Open in 2013. Not too long after, he took Food and Beverage Manager’s role. He left the UK and went home to India and started business with his dad. After he got it up and running, he came to the US where he worked on a special project for Marriott.
He was there a year and was approached by the Amarillo Club when they needed a Food and Beverage Manager. He was promoted within a year to Assistant GM. Last year, he was asked by the board to step up as General Manager and revive and rejuvenate the Amarillo Club which was on a very shaky path.
One year later they are in the middle of a $1M renovation and have experienced a 35% increase in membership.
Learn how this remarkable young man, did it.
