Mark Dewar - Trinity Hospitality Partners - Hospitality Executive Recruiters -

Founding Partner

Mark Dewar, a highly motivated hospitality professional, brings over thirty five years of diverse industry excellence and understanding to the table.

An advocate for the highest standards of quality related to products, service and top-caliber staff development, Mark championed the creation and operation of two very successful restaurants, still currently in operation today. In addition to his extensive experience in the culinary industry, he discovered very early in his hospitality career that he possessed the natural skill set required to succeed as a recruiter.  Having experienced the  industry from the perspective of a top recruiter for both a private boutique search firm and a national corporate recruiting firm, Mark wanted to provide a personalized, more hands on experience for both his clients and candidates. He discovered  and implemented opportunities for improvement that led him to establish this company, based on diversification and focused on the critical element of long-term client and candidate relationships.

Mark holds earned degrees in the Culinary Arts and Entrepreneurism from Johnson and Wales University, as well as earned degrees in the Culinary Arts and International Business from universities in Ireland, Holland and China. 

As a by product of his original career, Mark likes to spend his free time developing gastronomical delights for family and friends, with a preference for using ingredients from his garden outside of Chicago, as well as those sourced from surrounding farming communities.  He is also an avid global traveler, with his sights set on the exploration of the Southern Hemisphere.
