CFO and Managing Partner
Originally from Berlin, Germany Daniel started his career as an apprentice at The Hotel Bornmuehle after getting his hotel & restaurant management degree. His passion for wine moved him to spend more time in the restaurant where he executed all food and beverage including private functions, meetings and events.
Daniel’s friends recruited him from Germany to come to the United States to work at the famous White Barn Inn restaurant in Kennebunkport Maine. In a few years, he worked his way up from server to Food and Beverage Director. While working at the White Barn Inn restaurant, Daniel opened a few sister properties; an Italian restaurant called Grisini, an upscale Fish & Seafood restaurant in Kennebunkport, Maine called Stripers, and Muse by Jonathan Cartwright at the well-known Vanderbilt Grace Hotel in Newport, Rhode Island.
Daniel met his wife Mawa while they were both working in Kennebunkport. In 2012, Daniel was asked to be part of the opening team for the new Hotel Jerome and Prospect Restaurant in Aspen, Colorado. During this time, Daniel was also working at McQueen Hospitality as the Catering Manager. When the business started growing quickly, Daniel left the Jerome to concentrate on the family business.
Today, Daniel is the CFO and Managing Partner of McQueen Hospitality, LLC.
