The Allison Inn & Spa, Oregon Wine Country’s luxury boutique hotel, welcomed Ron Stevens as the new director of food & beverage and Jill King as marketing and communications manager.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome Ron and Jill to our growing team at The Allison,” says General Manager Percy Brandon. “Jill’s local perspective and creative eye will be invaluable assets for our team’s marketing efforts. Likewise, we cannot wait to see Ron support and elevate the culinary program at the hotel.”
Ron Stevens joins The Allison with extensive experience working in food and beverage at hotels, covering both restaurants and banquets. Stevens previously worked as the director of food & beverage at the Hilton Curio Collection where he oversaw operations for the hotel’s four restaurants, bar, and nightclub. In his new role at The Allison, Stevens will oversee all culinary programming at the 85-room award-winning resort, including the signature restaurant JORY as well as events.
The Allison also welcomed Jill King as marketing and communications manager. For the last four years, King served as the director of website communications at her alma mater, Linfield University in McMinnville, Oregon. King was the first to serve in that critical role and assisted in the rebranding of the institution from a college to a university.
“I’m honored to become part of The Allison Inn & Spa’s team,” shares King. “As someone who grew up in this area, it is inspiring to see a business built on community and incorporating what truly makes this region beautiful. I look forward to working alongside the entire Allison team furthering this luxury brand and celebrating its solid reputation.”
“The Allison Inn & Spa is pleased to grow its leadership team across all areas of the property, including culinary and marketing,” continues Brandon. “With these new team members, we look forward to leveraging fresh perspectives and talent to continue delivering excellent service and experiences to our discerning guests.”
