As an Eastern Washington native, Brent Herring is well-versed in sharing the beauty and range of activities enjoyed in this part of the region. As Sales and Events Director for both Walla Walla Steak Co. and Eritage Resort, Brent is dedicated to helping others celebrate in this beautiful place.
Brent has a unique role representing both Walla Walla properties and brings his high level of service and attention for details and ability to create strong relationships. He says, “Walla Walla Steak Company and Eritage Resort are such amazing venues and are well known for their exceptional service and mouthwatering culinary delights that I just had to be a part of the fast-growing organization.”
Herring was born and raised in Pasco, WA and has been part of the hospitality industry for 30 years. He began his career in the Tri Cities hotel industry working in a variety of roles including sales, catering, general manager, and regional manager before moving to Walla Walla in 2010. As the banquet manager for the historic Marcus Whitman Hotel, Brent managed all events including holiday brunches for 1,000 guests. He explored his culinary passions working as the General Manager at D’Olivo Tasting Bar for four years sharing his knowledge of Ultra-Premium EVOO, aged Balsamic vinegars, specialty foods, Champagne and kitchenware. Brent says that “My passion has always been in hospitality to providing exceptional experiences for guests while having fun doing it!”
When he is not creating exceptional events, Brent enjoys spending time with his close-knit family and cooking for and entertaining friends. He recently purchased a 115-year-old house and is spending time working on that, alongside his 2-year-old piebald German dachshund. He was named Solo because he is “so low” to the ground and has a large social media following of his own.
Brent’s motto is “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” He looks forward to sharing his gift for celebrating life to its fullest with the guests and teams at Walla Walla Steak Co. and Eritage Resort.
