Courage to pursue a dream

CGC Management, the operations arm for the food and beverage outlets at CityGate Centre, named Kristine Chinnici senior sales manager for CityGate Grille, Tap In Pub & Carvery and newly opened Che Figata.


A graduate of University of Central Florida in Orlando, Chinnici relocated to Naperville in 2014, bringing with her a Walt Disney philosophy, “All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”


With nearly a decade of experience in hospitality industry sales, Chinnici said of joining CGC, “From the time I moved here it was a dream to work for CityGate Centre.


“I was so impressed with the luxury environment and high-level service standards.”


When a mutual acquaintance introduced Chinnici to Che Figata Co-Founder and Executive Chef Mark Grimes, who also serves as CGC Management’s director of food and beverage, she took the opportunity to pursue that dream, expressing her interest in working at CityGate.


Prior to joining CGC, Chinnici held sales management roles locally at Main Event Entertainment, opening its Warrenville location in 2014, and Pinstripes. She held similar roles at hotels in her native Orlando before moving to the Midwest and settling in Naperville.


CityGate Centre also is home to the Forbes Four Star, AAA Four Diamond Hotel Arista. Among the restaurants and hotel, private event space is available for groups of 10 to 400.
