The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort has named Dan Herman executive chef from his previous role as executive sous chef. He replaces Robert Ciborowski, who left to take a position with a resort in South Florida.
This is a second major personnel change in the resort’s culinary department. Food and beverage director Tony Porcellini, who had been with the Swan and Dolphin since it opened, departed in August. Luciano Sperduto is now in that position.
Herman, at left, had previously been the Swan and Dolphin Resort’s executive sous chef. In his new role, he will oversee the two hotels’ 17 restaurants and food outlets as well as banquets and a staff of over 200. Before joining Swan and Dolphin, Herman was chef de cuisine at Arthur’s 27, a fine dining restaurant that was on the top floor of the Buena Vista Palace hotel.
