Fresh out of college, Meg Coomes began her career as an Administrative Assistant with 21c Museum Hotels in 2009. Company leadership quickly came to rely on her commitment to organization and efficiency and she was promoted to Retail Coordinator, overseeing the retail needs for both the online 21c Museum Shop and each property’s brick and mortar shop location.
As 21c has continued to grow, so has Meg. “I have basically been with 21c my whole career, so I have definitely grown tremendously both professionally and personally. I have learned everything I know from the team around me, which is a pretty amazing group of people.”
“I love my coworkers and I love being able to go to all of our different properties and seeing the teams there. Everyone can be themselves. It is great to see, especially at the property level and how that translates to guest experiences.”
Recently a new role was created, tailored specific to Meg’s strengths. As Procurement Manager she oversees all buying, manages budgets, and keeps things in order for all 21c Museum Hotels, including leading the opening orders at new hotels. With her new responsibility, Meg’s positive attitude shines and she’s known for exemplifying the 21c culture of YES. Her advice for potential teammates? “Don’t expect anything to be normal. There is nothing ordinary at 21c!”
