Hotels & Resorts
, a nationally recognized hotel owner and
management company, today announced that Steve Martin, vice president of
human resources, has been recognized as a 2018 HR Award winner by the Milwaukee
Business Journal

The prestigious award salutes southeastern Wisconsin’s top HR
practitioners who are making a difference in the human resources
profession. Martin, who was recognized in the publicly held company
category, is responsible for supporting and overseeing human resources
issues and strategic initiatives for the company’s entire hotel

An 18-year employee of Marcus Hotels & Resorts, Martin was instrumental
in re-imagining culture initiatives for the company and recently led the
development of a new mission statement, “Serve People, Create Memories,
Deliver Exceptional Experiences.” Under Martin’s leadership, the mission
statement was integrated into all facets of hotel operations, and

customer service gestures make an extraordinary impact on guests. Martin

associates through a variety of initiatives to include transforming
associate break areas into “family rooms” where associates can dine in a
special area that is focused on their enjoyment and relaxation during
their shifts.

“Steve is passionate about building a highly engaged culture that
creates a better experience for our associates, and ultimately, our
guests,” said Gregory S. Marcus, president and CEO of The Marcus
Corporation. “With his kind-hearted spirit coupled with his push for
perfection, Steve is the consummate example of what an HR leader should
be, and we are very proud that he is getting such wonderful recognition
for all he has done for our company and the HR community.”

Martin joined The Marcus Corporation in 2000 as corporate human
resources director of the company’s former Baymont Inns & Suites
limited-service lodging division. During his career with the company, he
served as the director of human resources for the Hilton Milwaukee City
Center and held several human resources roles for The Marcus
Corporation, including director of benefits and most recently, assistant
corporate director of human resources. Prior to joining The Marcus
Corporation, Martin worked for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Radisson Hotels
and Embassy Suites.

Martin is a member of the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM)
