Robbie Berger: El Gaucho Seattle Events Director

“The devil is in the details,” is something Robbie Berger, El Gaucho Seattle Events Director, knows a few things about. It’s no surprise that Robbie actually enjoys putting all of the pieces together, which is important for a role like hers.

After spending seven years as the Private Dining Director at AQUA by El Gaucho, Robbie, who is also lovingly referred to as “Berger,” was tasked with helping grow the off-site events business for El Gaucho Hospitality, and was recently promoted to Event Director for El Gaucho Seattle.

Robbie loves her new role, which provides a lot of opportunities and challenges. “Everyone works together well – we all work for each other. We all enjoy what we’re doing, and it shows. It’s really a great family feeling.”

That family feeling is an important accomplishment for Robbie, which she enjoys both at home and at work. She and her husband Tymon, have two daughters: Ella James and Avi Marie.

“The dynamics of such a young family is incredibly exciting and always changing. It keeps us on our toes!” she exclaims. “I feel incredibly blessed to be their mom, and that I’m able to experience their worlds with them and help them grow on a daily basis. It’s a huge accomplishment.”

While her best personal accomplishment is certainly raising her young family, Robbie‘s most important professional one is taking on the role she has now. “It’s an ongoing achievement,” she explains. “Knowing that what we do has a direct impact on the success of this exciting and innovative way of delivering the El Gaucho experience.”

She goes on, “I can’t say enough about our team. It’s such a talented group that’s fun to be around.”

Robbie‘s biggest claim to fame with her teammates is the fact she’s a vegan – in a steak-driven culture. That, alone, probably helps her most in working with guest’s special requests.

“We are here for anything our guests need, and we deliver on that commitment,” she says. “Everyone here is committed to execution, and I think our guests sense that. New business is great, but repeat business is personally satisfying because it’s a huge complement to the entire team’s commitment. We gain a lot of trust in our guests.”

In her free time (which is hard to imagine she has!), Robbie enjoys shopping and photography. “I love to take pictures of things close up. There is something beautiful about the small pieces that fit together to make life possible.”
