MADISON, Wis. (July 13, 2016)

IDM Hospitality, a hotel management and development firm headquartered in Madison, Wis. overseeing independent properties around the Midwest, named Jesse Kloskey executive culinary director, a newly created position within the firm. A Cambridge, WI native, Jesse returned home in 2014 after gaining valuable experience in the industry working on the West Coast, including Chef de Cuisine at Google in the California Silicon Valley. His background offers multiple Michelin two-star restaurant experiences both in the US and Europe.

It is Klosky’s primary effort to assist in the Food & Beverage functions at the different IDM properties in an effort to maintain high standards of food and beverage quality, service, and merchandising. Maximizing the F&B profitability is core to his role. IDM currently serves as the operator of seven independent restaurant and bar establishments throughout the Midwest with three additional projects in development. With a goal of providing additional support, trends, market analysis, menu development, and enhanced training, Kloskey’s addition is a welcome one.

IDM’s founder and president, Craig Neddersen, noted this was an exciting new addition for the firm. “Jesse’s hospitality pride outside of the kitchen will contribute to a strong culture of hospitality to our operations,” said Neddersen. “His perspective and comprehension of the role food plays in our businesses provides a strong platform which will simultaneously enhance the established brand of the F&B experience and drive profits.”
