Get to know our Westin Associates

I thought it would be nice to periodically introduce readers of the blog and hotel guests to our associates.  We are very fortunate at the Westin Nova Scotian to have many dedicated, long-term associates who are very proud of the hotel and the job they do.  I was chatting with Grant Wade, Catering Sales Manager, the other day and we got to talking about his boys and how quickly they are growing up.  This lead us to his years living in Vancouver and when he started working at the Westin.  Ladies & Gentlemen I introduce to you, Mr. Grant Wade…

Grant with his wall of success - social events are his specialty!

  • Grant graduated from Halifax West Highschool in 1985.  While at the West he played football for the Warriors. 
  • He attended Dalhousie University and studied sciences.
  • One of Grant’s first jobs was as a banquet server at the Nova Scotian Hotel, 1986-87, (now the Westin).
  • He worked in Banff, Alberta during the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.
  • Moved back to Halifax after Calgary and continued his career in the hospitality industry working at the Keg Restaurant, World Trade & Convention Centre and Prince George Hotel.
  • Grant spent seven years in Vancouver, British Columbia where he worked at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.  His hard work paid off as he was promoted from fine dining server to Catering Sales Manager.
  • Grant married his beautiful wife Patty in 1994 and they moved back to Halifax in 1998.  They have three awesome, and active, sons; Donovan (13), Noah (11) and Owen (8).
  • Grant has been contributing to the success of the Westin Nova Scotian for the past 12 years.  You can find him at 902-496-7970 or gwade@westin.ns.ca.
  • Grant’s most recent claim to fame is assistant coach of Donovan’s peewee football team, the Halifax Redhawks.  The team won their season opener last night with a score of 33 – 22.  Go Redhawks!!!
