The GM of The Standard, Hollywood and the LA Regional Director of Finance respectively, Kim and Brian were beloved pillars of The Standard's world. Brian got his start at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach in 2011 before making the move to LA, while Kim began at The Standard, Downtown LA in 2007 before taking the helm at The Standard, Hollywood two years ago. They will be deeply missed by so many throughout our community and beyond who knew and loved them.
We would also like to acknowledge the loss of our long-time partner and friend, Pepe Tena, of the Ferrado Group. Pepe was an avid supporter of The Standard and a friend to many of us.
In the aftermath of this devastating loss, The Standard Family has begun doing what it does best—coming together and taking care of others. Kim and Brian helped make The Standard’s world what it is, and we’d like to take a moment to share some remembrances from those who knew them best. It is the far-from-standard personalities, as seen by example in Brian, Kim, and those whom they touched, who make our world what it is—for our guests and each other.
