Landmark’s portfolio includes restaurants, event venues and boutique hotels in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. According to its website, Landmark employs more than 900 people, whom they refer to as “memorymakers.”
“Celebrating 20 years of memories at Liberty House was such an honor because it gave us an opportunity to highlight our exceptional team,” Jeanne Cretella told NJBIZ. “Frank and I are extremely grateful to our team, as well as our valued partners, family members and friends who contributed to an exciting and successful evening.”
Jeanne Cretella said one of the highlights of the evening was recognizing her Memorymakers, “many of whom have been with us since we began this journey 20 years ago.”
“It is their level of dedication and commitment to excellence that has enabled Landmark and Liberty House to grow year after year. They never lost sight of the importance of creating an atmosphere that is both welcoming and nurturing for our guests and other team members,” she said.
According to their website, the Cretellas — including daughter Maddy — are focused on converting historic or underutilized properties into apartment complexes, as well as retail, office and hospitality space.
Since Liberty House opened in 2001, it and other landmark properties have welcomed a host of celebrities, elected officials and others, including former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton; Oprah; Jennifer Lopez; the cast of the sopranos and others.
Jeanne Cretella said she and the team look forward to “many more years to come”.
