After serving as a director in Hyatt Hotels Corp., Stacey Snyder Murray made the leap to the restaurant business in 2016. She serves as head of marketing for the fast-growing Naf Naf Grill chain, where she’s responsible for everything from brand strategy to consumer insights and guest experience design. “Stacey does an outstanding job marketing our brand, and always does so with the guest in mind,” says CEO Paul Damico. “She works flawlessly within all of our sales channels—in-store, delivery, app, catering, loyalty—and is always cognizant of her work and how it relates to comp store performance.” It’s not just her focus on performance that Damico says makes her a standout—and likely a CMO of a large organization in the future—but also how she manages her team and consultants in a professional way that still keeps the mood light and fun.
