Kimpton Pittman Hotel is proud to announce Jack Murray as general manager of the forthcoming property.
Set to open in late summer 2020, the Kimpton Pittman Hotel is the first hotel to open in Dallas’ Deep Ellum, a neighborhood known for its vibrant art, food, and beverage scene and storied
music venues. The property offers 165 guestrooms and more than 8,000 square feet of meetings and event space, as well as a chef-curated American tavern, Elm + Good.
“We are honored to welcome Jack as general manager with his expertise and knowledge of the
Dallas market,” said Joe Pagone, regional director of operations for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. “His experience operating lifestyle and luxury hotels combined with his work ethic makes him the perfect person for the role.”
A native Texan, Murray brings more than three decades of hospitality experience in the local market to the position. As general manager, Murray will lead day-to-day operations of the hotel and oversee the creation of curated guest experiences.
Having begun his career with the Hyatt Hotels Corporation, he has since worked with numerous Dallas establishments including the Fairmont Hotel, Hotel ZaZa, The Adolphus, InterContinental Hotel, and Wolfgang Puck Catering. Murray comes to the Kimpton Pittman Hotel from The Joule, where he served as the regional director of sales and marketing for five years.
“I grew up going to Deep Ellum to watch various shows and see different artists, so the Kimpton Pittman Hotel feels like a natural passion project for me,” said Murray. “I am excited for the opportunity to work alongside so many talented colleagues.”
