EDWIN SMITH!

Edwin Smith is the Guest Experience Manager at the Music City Center. For those of you that may not know, that is the beautiful 2.1 million square foot convention center in the heart of downtown. He is responsible for managing the ambassador staff and also managing/conducting the free building/art tours. The Music City Center ambassadors are responsible for helping the guests maneuver around the building and also answer any questions about Nashville; for example “where is the closest barbecue restaurant or blues bar or best hot chicken restaurant “. He has been with the Music City Center almost three years. He says the great thing about the MCC is every day is a different adventure with new people and being downtown just adds to the mix.

Edwin is originally from Watertown, TN. He has five siblings, all female. His professional career can be broken down into 3 distinct phases. Phase 1-Hospitality (10+ years) starting with Hampton Inns, Stouffer Hotel (now Renaissance Hotel), Loews Vanderbilt Plaza, Hampton Inn-Vanderbilt, Gaylord Opryland Hotel, and the Holiday Inn- Atlanta Airport. Phase 2-Retail (15+ years) Circuit City, Sony Electronics, Microsoft, and Samsung. Phase 3-Back to Hospitality- Music City Center. He states “I guess you eventually gravitate back to where you are meant to be”.

He has also lived in Atlanta Georgia (two separate times), Columbus Ohio, Miami Florida, and Chicago, Illinois. But Nashville has always been home. He has worked most every job in hospitality, been a national trainer for Sony Electronics and a brand rep for Microsoft and Samsung.

Edwin is one of those people that gets along with everyone. He feels comfortable talking to anyone. He considers himself “a jack of all trades, master of none”. He likes to think he knows a little something about everything.

He is a big sports fan, especially Titans and Predators. He is also a big movie fan, especially anything comic book/graphic novel related or 80s comedies (he can recite some of those movie lines by heart). He loves music, reading and comedy. His dream job as a child was to grow up and become a superhero. Somehow that never panned out.

He loves to laugh and can find humor in almost any situation, even when most can’t. “Life is short and can be hard, sometimes all you can do is laugh to keep from crying”.

Edwin is thankful for the honor of being chosen as this month’s Spotlight, and looks forward to a long relationship with Music City Concierge Association.
