New General Manager and Executive Chef at Belo
Kevin Brant Chef Brian Litolff
The Dallas Bar Association welcomes two outstanding new members to the Belo Mansion staff.
General Manager Kevin Brant, CPCE, comes to the Belo Mansion with a wealth of experience in all facets of management. Prior to coming to Belo, Mr. Brant was the Director of Sales for Wolfgang Puck Catering in Dallas, where he oversaw catering sales and marketing at Union Station and Reunion Tower. In addition, he served as the Director of National Accounts for BBJ Linen and Vice President of Private Events for ClubCorp, USA. His 17-year career with ClubCorp began in Miami and took him to Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta and San Jose before bringing him to Dallas.
Mr. Brant is a member of the International Special Events Society and of the National Association of Catering Executives, in which he has held several positions including President of both the Ft. Lauderdale and Atlanta Chapters. He is one of a select few who have attained their CPCE (Certified Professional Catering Executive) Certification and he has been honored with NAFEM’s (National Association of Food Equipment Manufacturer’s) Doctorate of Food Service Award for his contributions to NACE and the industry-at-large.
Now firing up his delicious culinary talents in the Belo Mansion kitchen is Executive Chef Brian Litolff. A New Orleans native, Chef Brian is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute of New York. His life has revolved around food since the age of 7 when he began helping his mother and grandmother in the kitchen. After pursing a degree in architecture, Chef Brian realized he was missing something. He quickly returned to New Orleans to begin the study of his true passion—food.
After years of study, including an apprenticeship under renowned French Master Chef Pierre Bertanet, Chef Brian began his culinary career. His experience has taken him to the kitchens at Food Glorious Food, World Yacht Cruises and New York City’s famous Tatou Restaurant.
The Dallas Bar Association is pleased to welcome Mr. Brant and Chef Brian to the Belo Mansion.
