Arturo Gomez’s operational and marketing expertise, industry knowledge and hard work have made him one of the most respected professionals in Chicago’s highly competitive restaurant and nightclub world. Always at the forefront of highly profitable business partnerships and employee relations, Gomez’s successful leadership style is extremely well-respected and his effect on customers is matched with a business sense that has placed his projects at the top of the very short list of consumer and media favorites.
In 2006 and 2007, Gomez, along with partners Billy Dec and Brad Young, was asked to speak at The Nightclub and Bar Convention in Las Vegas as an industry expert. In 2008 he was selected as a keynote speaker on how marketing and operations, when jointly executed, empower a brand beyond measure. With partners Dec and Young, Gomez was presented with the “Operator of the Year” Award at the convention in 2008. Additional honors include being selected by Chicago Social magazine as one of eight “Men on Fire” in May 2006, an accolade that recognized Gomez’s unique representation and individualistic style, and he was recently named one of Chicago Now’s “11 People to Watch in 2011.”
