Chelsea Hershelman is the Senior Project Manager for Atelier Ace. As such, she is responsible for the implementing new Ace Hotels from the early planning stages through to opening on behalf of the brand. Working with the property and internal teams as well as the developers, architects, designers, contractors, consultants and partners, she serves as the main conduit of communication and oversight throughout each project.
Chelsea began her career in hospitality at Benjamin West whilst finishing her MA in Art History. She enjoyed the challenge of finding ways to bring design to life, within budget and timing constraints and working to bring out the best in what everyone had to offer. After two years in the Colorado office, she went on to help launch the BW London office, where she stayed for over seven years growing the team and working in every facet of procurement from purchasing to development to accounts.
For Chelsea, her work with Atelier Ace affords a natural marriage of her enjoyment of making connections between people and their abilities, organising many different entities toward a single goal and seeing creativity come to life. After procuring Ace London, she came to work for Ace full time and has managed the Pittsburgh and New Orleans hotel openings. She looks forward to many more in future as the family of Ace Hotels continues to grow.
