RICH CELENZA and Brian Marchi (from New Jersey) met one another in Florida over 30 years ago. What's interesting about these two old buddies is that Rich in his youth used to work inside and film his movies at The Hilton Chicago. Fast Forward thirty years later and Brian ending up being a Manager at that exact hotel. Brian talks about what life is like running a hotel with 1,544 rooms. Brian also discusses how he is currently living a healthier lifestyle along with what the hotel industry is going through during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Rich and Brian talk about Brian's 25 year journey starting at the very bottom and working his way all the way up to his dream job. The movie, "For Love or Money", featuring Michael J. Fox who was a concierge at a luxury hotel on Manhattan, changed the direction of Brian after he saw it. Once Brian saw that he knew what he was going to be for the rest of his life. Brian realized that he truly found his calling once someone hired him in the hotel industry.
