Senior Catering Sales Manager

For Lucas, Catering and Events have been near and dear to his heart for as long as he can remember. His favorite childhood memories all involve food, family, and a warm, inviting atmosphere. There is an inexplicable feeling he gets when thinking about these memories that can only be described as “cared for”, and this feeling is what inspires his approach to hospitality. Whether it is a intimate ceremony or a largescale celebration, his goal is to create an environment where people can forget their troubles and simply enjoy the moment.

Lucas has planned weddings in the Des Moines area for the past five years and has been with Hilton Des Moines Downtown since June 2019. Whether he’s at the hotel or off-site, food is a common topic of conversation for Lucas. He believes it’s the food we love and the traditions we hold on to that tell our stories. Discovering these stories and seeing them come to life during a wedding is one of Lucas’s favorite things to witness.
