Our Team

Kenneth Lee - General Manager

Kenneth Lee

General Manager

My first taste of the Food & Beverage Industry was at Burger King on Granville Street in downtown Vancouver flipping burgers in my early high school years.  And my love of food and servicing kept me in the industry for the next 30+ years.

I came to the Compass Group Canada in 2019 in the Eurest Dining Sector and now to Chartwells.  Before I came to Compass, I was the Restaurant Manager at Garden Terrace, Assistant Culinary Operations Manager with Holland America Cruise Line and the Food & Beverage Manager at the Empire Landmark Hotel.  Times were also spend at Renaissance Hotel Vancouver Harbourside, Four Seasons Hotel and 1886 Fine Dining Chinese Restaurant at Parq Casino to fine tune my service and operational skills.

I am quite adventurous when it comes to food, especially with the street vendors in Asia.  I love my wine, red or white, port and, of course, single malt.
